Crossfire

Ross Douthat and Charles Blow staged a public conversation for last night's University Lecture Series at Hendricks Chapel.

Intelligent Men/Intelligent Dialogue: Ross Douthat and Charles Blow (right) staged a public conversation for last night’s University Lecture Series at Hendricks Chapel.

They may disagree on policy, but one thing these two NYT opinion writers pointed out was that redlining and generations of housing policy in American cities were designed to discriminate, segregate and maintain white supremacy.

We heard this same point of emphasis at the recent Food Justice Symposium.

Blow will be a guest at the Thursday Morning Roundtable later today, which on this occasion is being held on a Wednesday. Moderator for the Roundtable is George Kilpatrick.

Humanitarian trumps Hollywood

Actor, humanist, Forest Whitaker visited Syracuse University on Wednesday.

Actor/social activist Forest Whitaker visited Syracuse University on Wednesday. Here he fields a question during a talk at Hendricks Chapel.

Despite the fact that has an Academy Award, Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, Forest Whitaker may still be one of the most underrated actors of his generation.  The guy has always made an impression in film roles, such as Good Morning Vietnam, where he mixed-it up with Robin Williams to The Butler, where he embodied the class and stoic dignity of Cecil Gaines.  And who can forget his more lighthearted characters like Jefferson (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) and Jackson (A Rage in Harlem).  

To learn about Whitaker’s humanitarian work, check out this clip.

Peaceful Journey

Colton Jones kicked off the peaceful protest on the steps of Hendricks Chapel (Syracuse University).

We found out about last night’s march for social justice via social media (Thanks Dave Tobin). The multi-generational, multi-cultural group of peaceful (but vocal) protesters began their journey at Hendricks Chapel, marched through campus (with a brief pause at Bird Library), then despite the wind chill near 20 degrees, hopped on the Connective Corridor before hitting Harrison Street, and eventually occupying a portion of Downtown Syracuse.

In appreciation for the march and the movement, with end with an album that was recorded on this day during the height of the Civil Right Movement (see below).

Verbal Acuity in American Characters

Anna Deavere Smith breathed life into several characters during her lecture/performance at Syracuse University on Tuesday afternoon. She almost perfectly embodied the conversational cadence and idioms of former Gov. Anne Richards, Rep. John Lewis and theologian Peter Gomes for about an hour.

Maybe her most impressive role was portraying prisoner Paulette Jenkins for a piece called “Mirror to her Mouth”. This sobering tale, filled with domestic violence, murder and regret, moved the crowd toward an almost religious silence.
