    Online event

    We invite you to join us for our latest film history livestream program: "**Jackie**", starring Natalie Portman as First Lady **Jacqueline "Jackie" Kennedy**.

    The second portion of our two-part program will be a full screening of the "Jackie" film (100 minutes).

    **Jackie** is a 2016 biographical drama film directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Noah Oppenheim. The film stars Natalie Portman as Jacqueline "Jackie" Kennedy. Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, and John Hurt also star; it was Hurt's final film released before his death in January 2017. The film follows Jackie Kennedy in the days when she was First Lady in the White House and her life immediately following the assassination of her husband, United States President John F.

  • Jacqueline Bouvier & John F. Kennedy’s 1953 Wedding Livestream

    **Let’s travel back in time to September 12, 1953 to attend the Newport, Rhode Island wedding of Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy.**

    Our livestream history program will feature a historical overview of the day’s events through pictures, videos and commentary. We’ll also provide the historical context of the wedding including how Jacqueline and Jack first met, their engagement, honeymoon and life as Georgetown newlyweds. The wedding took place 7 years before the November 1960 election of John F. Kennedy as President of the United States.

    ***

    Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Dudley Auchincloss
    request the honour of your presence
    at the marriage of Mrs. Auchincloss' daughter
    Jacqueline Lee Bouvier
    to
    The Honorable John Fitzgerald Kennedy
    United States Senate
    on Saturday, the twelfth of September
    at eleven o'clock
    Saint Mary's Church
    Spring Street
    Newport, Rhode Island

    Jacqueline Lee Bouvier and John F. Kennedy were married on the morning of September 12, 1953, in St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Newport, Rhode Island. The more than eight hundred guests included many notable individuals.

    The bride, given in marriage by her stepfather, Hugh D. Auchincloss, wore a dress of ivory tissue silk, with a portrait neckline, fitted bodice, and a bouffant skirt embellished with bands of more than fifty yards of flounces. Her rosepoint lace veil, worn first by her grandmother Lee, was draped from a tiara of lace and orange blossoms. Jacqueline wore a choker of pearls and a diamond bracelet that was a gift from the groom. The bride’s bouquet was of pink and white spray orchids and gardenias.
    The bride's attendants, dressed in pink taffeta, included: her sister, Lee (Mrs. Michael T. Canfield) as matron of honor; her stepsister Nina G. Auchincloss as maid of honor; and ten bridesmaids, among them the groom’s sister Jean and sister-in-law Ethel, and the bride’s former boarding school roommate, Nancy Tuckerman. Half sister Janet Auchincloss was flower girl and half brother James Auchincloss served as a page. Senator Kennedy’s best man was his brother Robert and among the ushers were brother Edward, brother-in-law Sargent Shriver, cousin Joe Gargan, brother-in-law Michael Canfield, friends Lem Billings, Red Fay, and Torbert Macdonald, Senate colleague George Smathers, and Charles Bartlett, who had introduced the couple.

    The ceremony was performed by Archbishop Cushing, a friend of the Kennedy family, and he was assisted by four other priests. Before the mass, a special blessing from Pope Pius XII was read.
    Tenor soloist Luigi Vena from Boston sang Gounod’s Ave Maria.
    The reception was held on the terrace of the 300 acre Auchincloss oceanfront estate, Hammersmith Farm, for more than twelve hundred guests. The wedding cake, four feet tall, was ordered by Joseph P. Kennedy. Meyer Davis and his orchestra played under a huge canopy.

  • White Supremacy & American History - Livestream Part Two of Two

    Online event

    **White Supremacy & American History - Livestream Part One of Two**

    Slave Patrols to Ghost-Skins: law enforcement, colonialism and raced dominance.
    An introduction and overview to the "theory of history" that is White Supremacy.
    This two part series examines how European settler colonialism provided the 'manifest' destiny that continues into today.

    In the United States a **slave catcher** was a person employed to track down and return escaped slaves to their enslavers. The first slave catchers in the Americas were active in European colonies in the West Indies during the sixteenth century. In colonial Virginia and Carolina, slave catchers (as part of the slave patrol system) were recruited by Southern planters beginning in the eighteenth century to return fugitive slaves; the concept quickly spread to the rest of the Thirteen Colonies.[citation needed] After the establishment of the United States, slave catchers continued to be employed in addition to being active in other countries which had not abolished slavery, such as Brazil. The activities of slave catchers from the American South became at the center of a major controversy in the lead up to the American Civil War; the Fugitive Slave Act required those living in the Northern United States to assist slave catchers. Slave catchers in the United States ceased to be active with the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment.

    In white supremacist circles, a **ghost skin** (short for 'ghost skinhead') is a white supremacist who refrains from openly displaying his racist beliefs for the purpose of blending into wider society and surreptitiously furthering his agenda. The term has been used in particular to refer to the entryism of racist activists in law enforcement.

  • Jacqueline Kennedy’s Washington, DC - Livestream History Tour

    Online event

    Join us for an online/virtual tour of sites throughout the Washington, DC metro area connected to dynamic First Lady **Jacqueline Kennedy** \- before\, during and after her White House years\.

    We’ll visit ….

    * one of the Virginia homes she grew up in
    * her two universities
    * the office building she worked in
    * the townhouse where she met Jack during a dinner party
    * the restaurant where he proposed - and she said “yes”
    * the homes they lived in
    * their church
    * her post-November 1963 residences
    * DC historic landmarks she influenced: White House, Kennedy
    Center, Arlington National Cemetery, etc.
    * and much more!

    **Jacqueline Lee "Jackie" Kennedy Onassis** (née Bouvier /ˈJuly 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was an American socialite, writer, photographer, and book editor who served as first lady of the United States from 1961 to 1963, as the wife of President John F. Kennedy. A popular first lady, she endeared the American public with her fashion sense, devotion to her family, and dedication to the historic preservation of the White House. During her lifetime, she was regarded as an international fashion icon.

    After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in French literature from George Washington University in 1951, Bouvier started working for the Washington Times-Herald as an inquiring photographer. The following year, she met then-Congressman John Kennedy at a dinner party in Washington. He was elected to the Senate that same year, and the couple married on September 12, 1953, in Newport, Rhode Island. They had four children, two of whom died in infancy. Following her husband's election to the presidency in 1960, Kennedy was known for her highly publicized restoration of the White House and emphasis on arts and culture, as well as for her style. At age 31, she was the third-youngest first lady of the United States when her husband was inaugurated.

    After the assassination and funeral of her husband in 1963, Kennedy and her children largely withdrew from public view. In 1968, she married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, which caused controversy. Following Onassis's death in 1975, she had a career as a book editor in New York City, first at Viking Press and then at Doubleday, and worked to restore her public image. Even after her death, she ranks as one of the most popular and recognizable first ladies in American history, and in 1999, she was listed as one of Gallup's Most-Admired Men and Women of the 20th century. She died in 1994 and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery alongside President Kennedy.

  • The Ukrainian Conflict: A Historical and Contemporary Analysis - Livestream

    We invite you to join us for a panel discussion of **the War for Ukraine** chaired by our friend Richard Sassoon.

    Our livestream program will provide an overview of current events through the historical and contemporary context of the conflict.

    This will be a follow-up to the initial Ukrainian program we had on March 5 to include recent developments.

    Ukraine War - Part 1 (March 5, 2022 Update)
    [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlSsZUBfmaI](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlSsZUBfmaI)

    During the program we welcome you to join us for an online Q&A with your hosts and fellow participants via Zoom.

    **The Russo-Ukrainian War** is an ongoing war between Russia (together with pro-Russian separatist forces) and Ukraine.[f] It began in February 2014 following the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity, and initially focused on the status of Crimea and parts of the Donbas, internationally recognised as part of Ukraine. The first eight years of the conflict included the Russian annexation of Crimea (2014) and the war in Donbas (2014–present) between Ukraine and Russian-backed separatists, as well as naval incidents, cyberwarfare, and political tensions. Following a Russian military build-up on the Russia–Ukraine border from late 2021, the conflict expanded significantly when Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022.

  • Dolley Madison - Film History Livestream

    Online event

    **We invite you to join us for our latest film history livestream program: "Dolley Madison: America's First Lady", starring Eve Best in the title role.**

    The first portion of our two-part program (approximately 30 minutes) will be a brief overview of the "Dolley Madison: America's First Lady"
    film, including its historical context, plot summary, things to look for, accuracy, etc.

    The second portion of our two-part program will be a full screening of the "Dolley Madison: America's First Lady" film (90 minutes).

    **Dolley Madison** lived through the two wars that established the U.S., was friends with the first 12 Presidents, and watched America evolve from a struggling young republic to the first modern democracy in the world. She was nicknamed “Queen Dolley,” and when she died in 1849 at the age of 81 — one of the last remaining members of the founding generation - Washington City honored her with the largest state funeral the capital had ever seen for a woman.

    Born prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Dolley Payne grew up during a time when the country was striving to develop an identity.

    When James Madison became the fourth President of the United States in 1809, Dolley assumed the then ill-defined role of presidential wife.

    As the president's wife, Dolley Madison created a uniquely American style - one that combined power with republican values. She presided over the first Inaugural Ball in Washington, opening it to the public; she took charge of transforming the President's House into a public space that was both elegant and democratic; and as her successors have done ever since, she adopted a social cause of her own, raising funds for an orphanage and advocating for children left parentless by the War of 1812.

    Hosting weekly socials where Washington’s elite could mingle in an unofficial capacity, Dolley Madison ushered in a new era of bipartisanship and behind-the-scenes politicking. After the War of 1812, when several politicians talked of abandoning the ravaged capitol and returning to Philadelphia, Dolley Madison continued to host social events, sending a clear message to influential members of Congress and Washington society that Washington was not beyond repair.

    Over time, Dolley Madison earned a reputation as skillful diplomat, humanitarian, style icon, and politically savvy hostess. She defined the role of the President's wife and became, in effect, America's first First Lady, and in the process changed the face of the American presidency.

    "Dolley Madison: America's First Lady" features Tony Award-nominee Eve Best (Nurse Jackie) as Dolley Madison and Tony Award-winner Jefferson Mays as James Madison (I Am My Own Wife).

    Online event

    **Environmental Series: Animals, Culture and Justice - Livestream**
    This presentation offers an overview of the initial stirrings (Aristotle, Darwin, Bentham) of advocacy for non-human animals. What do make of the ethical complications by which one animal (the doggy) we invite into our homes and buy holiday gifts for, while the arguably smarter animal, the pig, goes on the table at that same holiday. A brief look at how non-human animals serve as entertainment, food, and clothing for human animal comfort and appetites; Some we hate, some we love, Some we eat (Herzog). What's that all about, anyway?

  • Jacqueline Kennedy’s White House and 1962 TV Tour Livestream

    Online event

    **Let’s travel back in time to February 14, 1962 to see Jacqueline Kennedy's famous White House tour!**

    We invite you to join us for a historical overview of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy including a full viewing of her famous 1962 made-for-TV White House tour.
    Our two-part program will include a brief review of Jacqueline’s life as First Lady, followed by a complete viewing of her 60-minute, Emmy-award winning White House tour,.

    A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy was a television special featuring the First Lady of the United States, Jacqueline Kennedy, on a tour of the recently renovated White House. It was broadcast on Valentine's Day, February 14, 1962, on both CBS and NBC, and broadcast four days later on ABC. The program was the first ever First Lady televised tour of the White House, and has since been considered the first prime-time documentary specifically designed to appeal to a female audience.
    The program showed Kennedy on a tour of the house with the CBS News correspondent Charles Collingwood. The videotaped tour was the first glimpse the American public had had of the $2 million restoration of the White House that Kennedy had helped direct in the first year of her husband's presidency.
    The program was viewed by 80 million viewers and globally syndicated to 50 countries, including Russia and China.
