On Monday evening, November 16, starting at 6:30, the Brooklyn Historical Society will present “Malcolm X in Brooklyn,” a discussion led by BHS’s oral historian Zaheer Ali, about Malcolm’s activities in the Borough and his continuing legacy here. The event is free, but you must register here. BHS now advises that response has been so enthusiastic that registration does not assure you of a seat–it will be first to arrive, first to be seated.
“Movers and Shakers: Dance Activists in NYC”, a discussion about artistic expression as activism led by Eva Yaa Asantewaa, will take place on Thursday evening, November 19, starting at 6:30. This event is being presented in partnership with Brooklyn Dance Festival. It’s free, but you are asked to register here. Again, seating will be first come, first served.
Friday evening, November 20, from 5:00 to 9:00 BHS invites you to “party like it’s 1965″ at the last of this season’s Free Third Fridays, with free museum admission and with live music and Brooklyn Brewery brews to accompany you as you tour the exhibits.
