Happy Hikers
O'Connor Senior Center – This group meets on the trail once a week to enjoy the scenery, exercise, and great company! This week join us on Lone Mountain/Coyote Point February 22. We will meet at 10:00 AM at the Trailhead. This hike is rated "Moderate to Strenuous – 7.6 miles" The trail to Coyote Point leaves the Lone Mountain parking area toward the south and begins a gradual climb through the hardwood forest. At mile 1.6 the trail climbs very steeply through a series of switch backs. As our hike continues we climb and come to the Rankin Spring at mile 3.25. At mile 3.7 we take the spur to Coyote Point for good views south into the Tennessee Valley. To Get There: 1) If coming from Knoxville go thru Oak Ridge into Oliver Springs and turn west on highway TN62 toward Wartburg. Follow TN62 for 10.9 miles and turn left on Petit Lane. Follow Petit Lane to US 27 and cross onto Clayton Howard Road and go about 0.3 miles to the forestry headquarters on the right. Parking is available on the left across from the office. The headquarters has a restroom, but I am not sure how often they are open. Might be best to stop on the way to the hike. 2) From the Kingston area go thru Harriman and take US 27 N about seven miles. Turn west at the Lone Mountain State Forest signs (Clayton Howard Road) and go about 0.3 miles to the Forestry headquarters. Park across the road from the headquarters.

Screening of The Birth of a Movement - Knoxville
East Tennessee PBS – East Tennessee PBS, in partnership with Land Grant Films & the University of Tennessee School of Journalism & Electronic Media, invites you to a free screening of "Birth of a Movement." Screening to be held at the Larry Patrick Auditorium Communications Building University of Tennessee 1345 Cir Park Dr, Knoxville, TN 37916 In 1915, Boston-based African American newspaper editor and activist William M. Trotter waged a battle against D.W. Griffith’s technically groundbreaking but notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly The Birth of a Nation, unleashing a fight that still rages today about race relations, media representation, and the power and influence of Hollywood. Birth of a Movement, based on Dick Lehr's book The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights, captures the backdrop to this prescient clash between human rights, freedom of speech, and a changing media landscape. Event is free and open to the public but we ask that you reserve your seat through EventBrite.
