6:00 PM
Respect Her Crank! The Politics of Go-Go
Contact:    

Native Black Washingtonians are confronting displacement and erasure as they face increasing gentrification within the District. Go-go music plays a vital role in this resistance. What more can we do as artists and advocates to preserve Black people and culture in the city? ARTLAB and GIRLAAA begin to answer this important question in a virtual conversation alongside Janeese Lewis George from the Ward 4 Council, Chioma Iwuoha from DC Young Democrats, and go-go artist Michelle Blackwell.

This program is a part of ARTLAB’s Respect Her Crank! series. The series includes a set of public programs and a final virtual exhibit, celebrating women in go-go. ARTLAB is a digital art studio for teens, but this program is open to art- and Go-Go-lovers of all ages.

ASL interpretation will be provided for this program. If you have any questions about accessibility for this program, please email hirshhornexperience@si.edu.

This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.

Votes for Women: A History of Women's Suffrage
Contact:    
Votes for Women: A History of Women’s Suffrage
The campaign for women’s right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Senaca Falls, New York, to the ratification of the 19 th amendment in 1920. Who were the key players in New Hampshire and the nation? What issues and obstacles did they face? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment? Who was left out when women got the right to vote? Using historic photos and documents, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey. Liz is President of the League of Women Voters in NH, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendent of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. This presentation is supported by the New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Alzheimer's Research Q&A with Olathe Public Library
Contact:    
The Stall Catchers project is designed by researchers at Cornell University to advance Alzheimer’s solutions. This project focuses on one aspect of the disease: reduced blood flow in the brain. Learn more about Stall Catchers before the event: https://scistarter.org/nlm/stall-catchers-nlm

You can help by playing a simple game: view short videos from the brains of mice and “catch” stalls. We will teach you how to score blood vessels as “flowing” or “stalled." Even the most powerful computer technologies can’t do this accurately enough yet, but your keen eyes can help us process decades worth of data.

Join us online for an introduction to citizen science, to learn more about summer reading, and to learn how to participate in this citizen science project through a presentation and online Q&A.

Meet Dr. Pietro Michelucci, Stall Catchers Project Lead, on August 17 during a live virtual event. Allison Antrim of Olathe Public Library will be joining to ask about how Dr. Michelucci became a scientist and his career path, as well as his research for the Stall Catchers project.

Join us on Zoom and submit your own questions on the Q&A/Chat features during the event. This event is supported by Olathe Public Library, the Network of the National of Libraries of Medicine, All of Us, and SciStarter.
