Social Justice Revisited by Betty LaDuke

Tuesday, April 30, 2019
Crandall Public Library
"Social Justice Revisited" spans five decades of select artwork (1968-2018): Remembering, Reliving, Resisting. This series raises questions about personal and political relationships concerning how we live, what we have done, and what we need to do individually and collectively for peace and global survival. Betty LaDuke, native New Yorker and lifelong artist, was born to Russia and Polish immigrant parents. She studied art in the United States and Mexico where she met artists Rufino Tamayo, Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, whose representation of indigenous people influenced her life's artwork. LaDuke has spent her career as an advocate and storyteller for immigrants, refugees and the disadvantaged. The vibrant colors and irregular form in her murals, painting and drawings reflect the interesting stories of those she champions. In 2013, Betty LaDuke gifted the Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library the exhibition "Celebrating Women's Creative Hands and Spirit" containing 64 framed photographs of women artists from emerging economies 1980-2002, along with 18 original pieces of their art. The Folklife Center hosted this exhibition and associated programing January to April 2014. This Folklife Gallery exhibition is produced by the Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library, and made possible with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts - Folk Arts Program supported by Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.

Afternoon Film: Blackkklansman

2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Crandall Public Library
Christine L. McDonald Community Room

(USA, 2018, 13 min., color, DVD, R)

Starring John David Washington and Adam Driver

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It's the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. – Rottentomatoes.com

“For all its revelations of racist rot at the core of American society, Lee also offers a clear, specific, and wondrous, if wary, view of change that's possible because, at one time and to some extent, it actually happened.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker, 8/13/2018

This program is made possible in part with public funds from the Electronic Media and Film Program of the State of the New York State Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
