    7:00 PM
    A historical re-enactment, "Not On Our Watch: The Triumphant Oberlin-Wellington Rescue of 1858," is compared to the fictional events in James McBride's novel, "Song Yet Sung."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: A historical re-enactment titled "Not On Our Watch: The Triumphant Oberlin-Wellington Rescue of 1858" and related discussion will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 22, 2015, at the Kelton House Museum (586 Town St., Columbus, Ohio). The program is the next event in Bexley Community Book Club's series illuminating the works of 2015 selected author, James McBride. The conversation will explore connections between this drama and the fictional events in James McBride's novel, "Song Yet Sung." The event is free and open to the pubic. The presentation, created and performed by the members of the Kelton House Underground Railroad Community Advisory Committee, is based on events that occurred in Wellington and Oberlin in northeast Ohio, and the narrative centers on the capture of a runaway slave by bounty hunters, and the actions of anti-slavery students and townspeople who freed the man from jail. The reenactment will be followed by an audience discussion facilitated by Denison University's Linda Krumholz, associate professor of English and director of Black Studies. The conversation will explore connections between this drama and the fictional events in James McBride’s novel, "Song Yet Sung." In her research, Dr. Krumholz studies how fiction can transform representations and beliefs about race and history. The McBride novel is inspired by events of the same period. In the days before the Civil War, a runaway slave named Liz Spocott breaks free from her captors and escapes into the labyrinthine swamps of Maryland's eastern shore, setting loose a drama of violence and hope among slave catchers, plantation owners, watermen, runaway slaves, and free blacks. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution called it "noble and profound," while Essence called the book "a thrilling ride." The presentation is the third in a series of four events leading up to Mr. McBride's visit in April, when the author will come to Columbus and Bexley, spending time with Bexley High School students during the day and giving an evening lecture, reading and musical performance at the Lincoln Theatre. Co-presented with the Lincoln Theatre Association, McBride will be accompanied by his five-piece Good Lord Bird Band for the April 14, 7:30 p.m. program. The fourth and final event prior to Mr. McBride's visit will be a screening of the Spike Lee film, "Miracle at St. Anna," based on the McBride novel of the same name. That program, followed by a critics' panel, is scheduled for 7 p.m. on March 24 at the Drexel Theatre (2254 East Main St., Columbus, Ohio).

    Full Description: A Philosophy Coffee in honor of Martim Luther King Jr. discusses "Freedom of Expression and Respect for Difference on Campus." Denison as a liberal arts college is committed to academic freedom and in particular to the freedom of expression of all students and faculty; at the same time it is committed to embracing diversity and difference, and to respecting the dignity and safety of all members of the community. Do these values ever come into conflict? How do prohibitions of harassment based on racial, gender, or other characteristics interact with ideals of free expression?
