Broadway is focus of Way film screening
PERRYSBURG - The documentary "Broadway: The American Musical, Episode 2" will be shown Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Way Public Library, 101 E. Indiana Ave.
Directed by Michael Kantor, this episode of the 2004 Emmy Award-winning series focuses on the Jazz Age, Broadway's most prolific era. In the 1920s, Broadway showcased the sweeping changes transforming American culture: new roles for women; the mix of social classes in Prohibition speakeasies; creative opportunities for African Americans in jazz clubs.
The descendants of Jewish immigrants-including the Gershwins, Irving Berlin, and Rodgers and Hart-combined the syncopated rhythms of jazz with lyrics that established a vibrant, witty new American argot.
Series features movies made by UT faculty
TOLEDO - "Homecoming … Sometimes I am Haunted by Memories of Red Dirt and Clay" a film by University of Toledo Charlene Gilbert will be shown today at 7:30 p.m. in the UT Center for Performing Arts, Room 1039. The film is the first in a series of screenings of work by UT faculty members.
"Homecoming" uses rare archival photographs, and analysis by scholars and land reform activists to paint a picture of the journey of black farmers after the Civil War. Gilbert chairs the Department of Women's and Gender Studies.
