Greer Environmental Sciences Center, Room 155

Ambassador and Civil Rights activist, Andrew Young, stated, “You could say that music played a bigger part in the Movement than the courts.” Four time Grammy winner, veteran music producer, record company executive, and studio musician Steve Buckingham explores this subject through archival films and photos, interviews, and extensive use of music.

On Deck Speaker Series: Antiquity in Antiquity: How Ancient Israelites and Greeks Understood Where They Came From
Lambuth M. Clarke Hall, The Lighthouse
11 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.

Dr. Andrew Toblowsky, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the College of William & Mary, researches religions of the ancient Mediterranean, particularly highlighting the unique connections between the classical Greek world and that of the ancient Israelites. In this lecture, Toblowsky discusses how the peoples of ancient Israel and Greece lived in a world that they already understood to be very ancient and how they took delight in describing the exploits of heroes of old. Without either the ability or inclination to research as modern historians do, however, ancient historians relied on traditional sources of knowledge, and on systems, like genealogies and lists that organized that knowledge. As a result, they created inherently fluid visions of the past, which was repeatedly reshaped through competitions between storytellers. This event is sponsored by The Lighthouse in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom and the Classics Department. Free and open to the public.

When Prayer Goes to the Movies

Jane P. Batten Student Center, Pearce Suite

Food is more than fuel.  It is one of the most powerful expressions of identity for both individuals and groups.  It communicates values, it is used symbolically, and it marks social and theological boundaries.  Have you ever wondered why Hindus don’t eat beef, why Jews and Muslims don’t eat pork, or why most of us don’t eat cats? Do you know the religious origins of Welch’s grape juice and graham crackers? Join us for lively discussion as friends from a variety of religious traditions, along with VWU students in WES100 Religious Food Fights, give bite-sized talks, each exploring why certain foods are theologically meaningful and others are strictly prohibited. Sample distinctly “religious” foods and participate in discussions on how food brings us together and separates us.
