Native American Women and the Politics of Portraiture at the Turn of the 20th Century
Contact:    
At the turn of the twentieth century, Native American cultures, governments, and traditions were under sustained attack by federal policies that sought to destroy them. Policymakers drew a contrast between "modern Americans" and "primitive Indians" based on clothing, hairstyle, and self-presentation. Those ideas were reinforced by the many images of American Indians that proliferated in art, literature, the built environment, and myriad other aspects of U.S. culture. This presentation explores how two Native American activists, Marie Bottineau Baldwin (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) and Gertrude Bonnin, also known as Zitkala-Ša (Yankton Dakota), strategically used self-presentation–especially clothing and portraiture–to change public opinion about Native communities in their fight for political rights.

Black women have voiced and penned some of the most popular songs in American music history. From Gertrude “Ma” Rainey to Lizzo, Respect Her Crank!: Writing Sounds of Blackness examines the delicate craft of songwriting through influential Black women singer-songwriters. Renowned singer-songwriter Amber Mimz facilitates multiple songwriting workshops designed to comprehensively teach elements of quality songwriting in various genres of music.

It is well known that music sampling is a key element in hip-hop. However, did you know that RnB singers also use samples? Analyze the work of Erykah Badu, Lil’ Kim, and Ari Lennox to explore how RnB singers sample vocal melodies and lyrics of the past. Then, create your own vocal sample using Sample-Stitch and Audiobridge

Join us for a screening & discussion of the new Ken Burns film,
HEMINGWAY
Thursday, April 1 at 6 pm
 
Join New Hampshire PBS, in partnership with New Hampshire Humanities and the New Hampshire Writers’ Project, for an exclusive online screening and discussion of the new Ken Burns film, HEMINGWAY, on Thursday, April 1st at 6 pm. 
 
HEMINGWAY is a three-part series, directed by Ken Burns and longtime collaborator Lynn Novick, that paints an intimate picture of Hemingway, the writer, who captured on paper the complexities of the human condition in spare and profound prose and whose work remains deeply influential around the world. The film reveals a deeply troubled and ultimately tragic figure and explores Hemingway’s limitations and biases as an artist and a man.
 
After the 30-minute HEMINGWAY screener, New Hampshire Humanities Public Programs Director Dr. Tricia Peone will engage in conversation with HEMINGWAY documentary writer Geoffrey C. Ward, Board Chair of New Hampshire Writers' Project Masheri Chappelle, and New Hampshire author Robert Wheeler. 
 
The new three-part Ken Burns documentary HEMINGWAY airs on New Hampshire PBS on April 5, 6 & 7 at 8 pm. The April 1 screening and discussion are free, but participants must register to receive the viewing link.
