LET'S TALK | BRIDGING THE DIVIDE - 400th Commemoration of Enslavement in America

Panelists Include:
Dr. Kevin Cosby, Dr. F. M. Smith Jr, and Cheri Mills of Simmons College

Join our panelists for a discussion centered around the arrival of the first documented slaves who landed in Jamestown, Virginia in 1619. The talk will also center around the 40 Days of Prayer for the liberation of American descendants of slavery. The 40 Days of Prayer begins on July 12th and ends on August 20th. Every daily reading during the 40 Days of Prayer will be about an actual account of slaves escaping on the Underground Railroad. The reading will share information about the slaves perceived age (as many did not know what their age was), and the atrocities they were running from. The information and research from the readings comes from the work of William Still.

In addition to the panel discussion, Jerry Finn of Friends of the Town Clock Church will speak about its history and ties to the Underground Railroad.

August 20th marks the 400th Commemoration of Black Enslavement in America. This program serves as an invitation to the public and local ministers to engage in the national event on August 20th.

This program is Free to the Public thanks to the Horseshoe Foundation. Seating is limited. Please RSVP using the link below.

Lewis and Clark on the River

A jam-packed day of family fun awaits you at the Frazier as we celebrate the exciting new addition of select artifacts to our exhibit The Lewis and Clark Experience.

When Lewis and Clark led the Corps of Discovery on its famous expedition across the American West to the Pacific Ocean, rivers proved to be a crucial part of their journey. Butch Bouvier, also known as Mr. Keelboat, has re-created three of the most important boats that were used by the Corps: the Keelboat, the White Pirogue, and the mysterious Iron Boat, which disappeared along the way, never to be found again. Bouvier and Sterling Fitcher, a re-enactor who portrays John Colter, the first Mountain Man of the West, will deliver the three boats to the Frazier on June 22nd.

Events this day will include activity tables from the Frazier and area historic sites, Lewis and Clark-related performances, a talk and Q&A session with Butch Bouvier about his experiences along the Missouri River followed by a signing of Bouvier’s book Brown Water, and a demonstration of Kentucky Long Rifles and signal cannons by Sterling Fitcher.

This day of activities is presented in collaboration with community partners and institutions
the Filson Historical Society, the Falls of the Ohio, and Locust Grove.

11 AM – John Colter interp
12 PM – Lewis and Clark radio show interp
1 - 2 PM – “In the Wake of Lewis and Clark: A conversation with Butch “Mr. Keelboat” Bouvier”

POLITICS, PROPHECIES, AND GONZO:
WHAT LOUISVILLIAN HUNTER S. THOMPSON GOT RIGHT AND WRONG

DOORS: 5 PM, Access to Freak Power exhibition | PANEL DISCUSSION: 6 - 7 PM

Panel Moderators: Rachel Platt and Barry Bernson
Panelists: Stephen George of Louisville Public Media,  Former Editorial Writers Pam Platt and Tom Eblen, Former Political Reporter Mark Hebert, and Bellarmine Poli-Sci Professor Eric Roorda.

What would Hunter S. Thompson do and say in the age of Trump? He was fearless going after power with President Nixon, so what about now and how reporters cover the president and politics. Thompson’s platform from his 1970 run for Sheriff of Pitkin County (Aspen, CO) focused on the environment, social reforms, and the politics of greed, topics that remain relevant today. We’ve gathered some of Louisville’s best journalistic and political minds together in this panel to dig deeper into what Thompson got right and what he got wrong.
