Lecture Series: Diaspora Talk Series - Liberated Threads: Black
The John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies – From the civil rights and Black Power era of the 1960s through antiapartheid activism in the 1980s and beyond, black women have used their clothing, hair, and style not simply as a fashion statement but as a powerful tool of resistance. Whether using stiletto heels as weapons to protect against police attacks or incorporated African-themed designs into everyday wear, these fashion-forward women celebrated their identities and pushed for equality. Bio: Tanisha C. Ford is Associate Professor of Africana Studies and History at the University of Delaware. She is the author of Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul (UNC Press, 2015), which narrates the powerful intertwining histories of the Black Freedom movement and the rise of the global fashion industry. Liberated Threads won the 2016 Organization of American Historians’ Liberty Legacy Foundation Award for best book on civil rights history. She studies social movement history, feminist issues, material culture, popular culture and entertainment, and fashion, beauty, and body politics. Her public writing and cultural commentary has been featured in diverse media outlets and publications including the New York Times, the Root, the New Yorker, Ebony, NPR: Code Switch, Fusion, News One, New York Magazine: The Cut, Yahoo! Style, Vibe Vixen, Feministing, the Journal of Southern History, NKA: Journal of Contemporary African Art, The Black Scholar, and New York City’s HOT 97. A dynamic speaker, she has been invited to give lectures and serve as a roundtable discussant at institutions around the world including: the Brooklyn Museum, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the Delaware Historical Society, Parson’s The New School for Design, Ritsumeikan University (Japan), the Black Europe Summer School (Netherlands), and The University of London. She is currently working on two new book projects. The first is a history of black style, from Black Power to #BLackLivesMatter. The second centers on the black women activist-socialites of the mid-twentieth century who hosted lavish galas, fashion shows, and pageants in cities such as New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Paris, and Berlin to raise funds for the burgeoning Black Freedom movement. Her research has been supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Ford Foundation, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and the Center for Black Music Research, among others. She lives in New York City.

AFS: History of Television: The Abbott & Costello Show - Free
Austin Film Society – A bunch of jerks make mistakes, cause trouble and by the next episode the slate is wiped clean to start again. No consequences. No character arches. It makes sense that Jerry Seinfeld credits The Abbott & Costello Show as the main source of inspiration for SEINFELD. Abbott and Costello were the number one box office stars of their time and this show might be seen as them caving in to the new fad of television. But what we get here is the visual history (in some instances the only recording) of just about every single vaudeville gag ranging from the classic Niagara Falls bit to the surreal Crazy House skit. For comedy history the importance of this is staggering. Yet even more astonishing is that this show is still so overlooked. Well, no more of that gosh darn it! Come and get your funny bones shattered at this uproarious night of comedy. --------------------------------------------------------- Directed by Various 1h 40min --------------------------------------------------------- Tickets: https://www.austinfilm.org/screening/history-television-abbott-costello-show/

November Young Adult Mass & Adoration
Schoenstatt Movement of Austin – Our third Tuesday adoration this month falls on the Feast of the Presentation of Mary, so instead of having our normal hour of adoration, we will start at 7pm with Holy Mass, followed by half an hour of adoration. The importance of this feast day is its theological significance due to the connection with the dogma of the Immaculate Conception and the fact that Mary was indeed consecrated to God as a Holy Virgin, and offered herself to Him completely. Come to the Shrine and celebrate this feast day with our Blessed Mother and our Lord. Snacks and social to follow in the movement house.

AFS: Ishtar, Richard Linklater hosts Elaine May comedy
Austin Film Society – The Tues. Nov. 21 screening will feature a live introduction from AFS Founder Richard Linklater and a post-screening discussion on stage. "There’s a level of invention, a depth of reflection, and a tangle of emotions in “Ishtar” which are reached by few films and few filmmakers." -The New Yorker Elaine May’s globe-trotting comedy about a pair of hapless songwriters (Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty) was savaged upon its initial release, but has since been rediscovered and somewhat rehabilitated by modern audiences. With Charles Grodin, Isabelle Adjani and more. ---------------------------------------------------------- Directed by Elaine May USA, 1987, 1h 47min, DCP ---------------------------------------------------------- https://www.austinfilm.org/screening/ishtar/ Thanks to our sponsors, Amazon Studios & Tito's Handmade Vodka.
