Voices Beyond Bondage: African American Verse from the 19th Century

Presented by Erika DeSimone

Thursday April 30 at 7:00 p.m.

Voices Beyond Bondage, published by New South Books, is a collection of 150 poems culled from black-owned newspapers from the 19th century.

These poems are not the work of a few elite literary masters but poems penned mostly by everyday people. Whether these authors were formally schooled or self-taught, whether they were slaves, free peoples, or the descendants of slaves, African Americans put ink to paper and declared their passions in verse. Erika will talk about the research process and will read a selection of the poems.

Medford native Erika DeSimone earned her undergraduate degree from Westfield State University. She is currently an editorial assistant at the Modern Language Association, where she has worked for more than a decade.

Presented by The Friends of the Medford Public Library

A Documentary Screening and Discussion

Hosted by David Fedo 

Thursday, May 28 at 7:00 p.m. (Rescheduled from February 28)

Freedom Riders is the powerful, harrowing, and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism.

The discussion will be led by David Fedo.  A longtime resident (with his wife Susan) of Medford, David has recently retired from a career at Curry College and Wheelock College.  David has facilitated numerous book discussion groups sponsored by the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities and is the leader of  the Library’s Local Author Book Group.

 

This film is the final documentary from the Medford Public Library's Created Equal grant, funded by the National Foundation for the Humanities.
