City: New York

Additional Notes:
Join us for a talk by Efrat Yerday on the contemporary parallel struggles of Ethiopian Jews in Israel/Palestine and Black Lives Matter in the US and on the struggles of black people against racism from a transnational perspective.In recent years, Ethiopian Jewish activists have begun to gradually perceive their struggle in universal terms, adopting global anti-racist strategies on the one hand, but often without giving up their precarious privilege as Jews. More specifically, they have drawn from the Black Lives Matter movement, invoking practices and language that transcend the local so as to garner universal legitimation. African American leaders such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King are quoted frequently in demonstrations and on social media by Ethiopian activists; the clashes in Baltimore, Fergusson and Missouri are linked to the clashes in Rabin square in Tel Aviv.Efrat Yerday is a writer, scholar, editor, and activist. In 2010–2011 she served as the spokesperson for the Israeli Association for Ethiopian Jews and published opinion pieces on racism in general and institutionalized racism in particular. Over the years she has also published reviews of nonfiction dealing with Ethiopian history and the absorption of Ethiopians in Israel. In 2010 she established the Young Ethiopian Students blog, inviting critical thinking and challenging the establishment and academic narrative of the immigration and absorption of Ethiopian Jews. Yerday teaches at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev and writes regularly for Hamakom hakhi kham begehinom (The Hottest Place in Hell) and for other media outlets.

Dead Man's Dinner


By W.M. Akers

After ten years of siege, three women are trapped in the middle of the most dangerous war zone in the world: the Upper West Side. In a frigid rent-stabilized apartment, Olympia and her daughter Petra have spent years surviving any way they can. When Petra falls in love with Jackie, an injured soldier, their food supplies are stretched to the limit. As death creeps closer, each woman will be torn between love and hunger—and hunger always wins.

DBA Mizner Theater
City: Boca Raton

Additional Notes:
The “Discover DaVinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience” original, national touring theater performance makes its Palm Beach County debut at the Mizner Park Cultural Center on Monday, March 27, 2017 for an “Opening Night” 7:30pm performance to benefit the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery.

Mark Rodgers, the renowned creator and host of the famously interactive, multi-media performance, is also the curator of the DaVinci Machines and Michelangelo Exhibitions from the permanent Museum of Leonardo DaVinci in Florence, Italy.

Rogers will take audiences on a FANTASTIC, AWE-INSPIRING journey through the Italian Renaissance as seen through the eyes of these two monumental geniuses, who were not only contemporaries, but also fierce competitors.

This non-stop, multi-media performance includes movies, 3-D animations, and images of DaVinci and Michelangelos inventions, machines, images of codices, artwork, paintings, and sculptures.

“DaVinci and Michelangelo have an outreach and following that everyone can relate to,” says Rodgers. “Everything they said and did relates to our lives today…[and] we are honored to be benefiting the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery for their dedication to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy to raise awareness of its cultural treasures and to provide resources for preservation, restoration and education of Renaissance art for future generations. DaVinci and Michelangelo would be proud for their support, forward thinking and bringing new, innovative theater, and art to the students, parents, schools, art and theater patrons of Palm Beach County,” Rodgers further explains.
