Genealogy Essentials
African-American Genealogy: Resources and Research Methods
From 1565 to 1790, Africans surpassed Europeans among the roughly one million newcomers to what would become the United States. A majority of these nearly 360,000 men and women crossed in bondage. Centuries of local and federal laws related to the livelihood of black Americans have created a complex paper trail of genealogical resources. This class aims to provide introductory historical context and recommend basic research methods in the pursuit of African-American family history.

The Women Behind "Salome of the Tenements"
Salome of the Tenements is a now-lost classic of 1920s silent film, a tale of romance and struggle among Jewish immigrants on the Lower East Side. Behind the plot of the movie lay a tale perhaps even more remarkable, that of the four women who helped bring it to life. Alan Robert Ginsberg chronicles the story in his new book, The Salome Ensemble: Rose Pastor Stokes, Anzia Yezeierska, Sonya Levien, and Jetta Gould. He will discuss it with Budd Mishkin, broadcast journalist and former host of NY1'…

Classic Movie Monday: While the City Sleeps
1 hour 40 minutes, 1956 "Ask mother" says the message scrawled in lipstick at the murder scene by a serial killer who preys on women. It's a sensational story - if it bleeds, it leads - and a news conglomerate offers a big promotion to the high-level executive who solves the case. So begins the wheeling, dealing and backstabbing of the competing media hotshots as they vie to unmask the so-called Lipstick Killer. Starring: Rhonda Fleming & Ida Lupino
