History Is Lunch: Diane Kiesel
Mississippi Department of Archives & History – At noon on Wednesday, September 27, as part of the department's History Is Lunch series, Diane Kiesel will discuss her book "She Can Bring Us Home: Dr. Dorothy Boulding Ferebee, Civil Rights Pioneer." An African American obstetrician and civil rights activist from Washington DC, Dorothy Ferebee (1898–1980) was descended from lawyers, journalists, politicians, and a judge. At a time when African Americans faced Jim Crow segregation, desperate poverty, and lynch mobs, she advised presidents on civil rights and assisted foreign governments on public health issues. Though articulate, visionary, talented, and skillful at managing her publicity, she was also tragically flawed. Ferebee was president of the Alpha Kappa Alpha black service sorority and later became the president of the powerful National Council of Negro Women in the nascent civil rights era. From 1935 through the start of World War II, Ferebee spent part of each summer in the Mississippi Delta where, with a team of volunteer Alpha Kappa Alpha nurses, she directed the Mississippi Health Project. The “cotton field clinic,” as it came to be known, remains one of the most successful volunteer public health programs in the nation’s history. Ferebee and her staff withstood staggering heat and humidity, primitive housing conditions, and uncooperative plantation owners to bring heath care to 15,000 of the country's poorest black sharecroppers and tenant farmers. A household name in black America for forty years, Ferebee was also the media darling of the thriving black press. Ironically, her fame and relevance faded as African Americans achieved the political power for which she had fought. In "She Can Bring Us Home," Diane Kiesel tells Ferebee’s extraordinary story of struggle and personal sacrifice to a new generation. Diane Kiesel is an acting justice of the New York State Supreme Court. She presides in the Bronx County Criminal Term. A former journalist, she is a winner of the Worth Bingham Prize for Investigative Journalism. She lives in New York City. The program will take place in the William F. Winter Building, located at 200 North Street, Jackson, MS 39201. There is no charge to attend. Sales and signing to follow. For more information call 601-576-6998 or email info@mdah.ms.gov.

The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
Belhaven University Theatre Department – THE GLASS MENAGERIE BY TENNESSEE WILLIAMS DIRECTED BY ELISSA SARTWELL WEDNESDAY–SATURDAY, 7:30 PM SATURDAY MATINEE, 2 PM, BARBER AUDITORIUM One of the most loved and produced plays of all time, The Glass Menagerie reveals the ways in which we try to simultaneously cling to and escape our memories.

In this memory play, Tom Wingfield looks back on the years he spent living with his mother, Amanda, and his sister, Laura, in a tenement apartment in depression-era St. Louis. Often cited as Williams’s most autobiographical work, The Glass Menagerie is a fragile masterpiece.

The Cast: Amanda: Grace Reeves Laura: Noelle Balzer Tom: Christopher Miller The Gentleman Caller: Caleb Henry Understudy: Aryelle Tuttle The Production Staff: Director: Dr. Elissa Sartwell Assistant Director: Aryelle Tuttle Stage Manager: Rebecca Lapeyre Scenic and Lighting Designer: Michael Tobin Costume Designer: Ashley Reed Sound Designer: Christy Robeson Props Master: Angela Landgraf Dramaturgs: Benjamin Shrader and Dillon Cannon Assistant Stage Manager: Brianna Fondren Wardrobe: Tori Turnbow House Manager: Benjamin Shrader
