April 7 – Wednesday 5 – 6 p.m. University of Puget Sound Zoom
Presented by Flora Cassen, Washington University. From Paris to Pittsburgh, the past few years have seen a dramatic resurgence of antisemitism around the world. But the reasons for this, and the ways in which what we’re seeing today is different or similar from the antisemitism of the past, are not well understood. In this talk, she will draw on personal experiences, family history, and historical scholarship to explain the many manifestations of antisemitism in our world today.
4/7 – Wednesday 6:30 p.m. Elliot Bay Books Virtual Event
Diana Butler Bass. In Freeing Jesus (HarperOne), she challenges the idea that Jesus can only be understood in static, one-dimensional ways. She encourages readers to “leave the religious wars behind and rediscover Jesus in all his many manifestations, to experience Jesus beyond the narrow confines we have built around him.” It renews our hope in faith and worship at a time when we need it most.

Sharon Russell will present a talk: The Harlem Renaissance-End of WWI until the Great Depression. The turbulent years after the Civil War and the passage of the 13th amendment left conflicting ideas about the future of Black Americans. At the end of WWI, W. E. B. DuBois asserted that “The great mission of the Negro to America and the modern world is the development of Art and the appreciation of the Beautiful.” He called the “Talented Tenth” to Harlem to form a community consciousness to advance equality through the arts.
