12:00 PMHarbor Country Film Group with Eve Moran - "Once Upon a Time�When We Were Colored"



Location:  New Buffalo Township Library
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  In recognition of Black History Month, our February film is Once Upon a Time…When We Were Colored, a 1995 release by director Tim Reid. Life in the segregated South was an extremely challenging and hurtful thing. And yet, against it all, a tightly connected rural community exercised a special power. This film celebrates the close bonds of family, friends and church that served to nurture, sustain and inspire a young boy growing up in the harshness of 1950s Mississippi. We’ll meet many vivid characters and experience touching moments that grab our hearts. The film is based on the critically acclaimed book by Clifton L. Taulbert. Roger Ebert’s four-star 1996 review of Once Upon a Time…When We Were Colored states, “I am aware of three screenings it has had at film festivals: before a largely black audience in Chicago, a largely white audience in Virginia, and a largely Asian audience in Honolulu. All three audiences gave it a standing ovation.” There you have it.
All are welcome, and there will be free popcorn. Expect the meeting to last about 2-1/2 hours.

12:00 PMHarbor Country Film Group with Eve Moran - "Hema: The Dance of Her Life"



Location:  New Buffalo Township Library
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  In honor of Women’s History Month (and in celebration of International Women’s Day), we will consider the story of a remarkable woman brought to the screen by a gifted woman director. Hema: The Dance of Life chronicles the artistic life of Hema Rajagopalan, the acclaimed Bharata Natyam dancer and founder of the Natya Dance Theatre. This documentary film, by Rana Segal, follows Hema’s journey from a child prodigy performing for India’s elite ruling class to her experiences on settling in America, where she blossomed as a dancer, choreographer, story teller and builder of wide community. Hema’s dynamic devotion to Bharata Natyam dance impacted more than the Chicago Indian community; she preserved her culture’s traditions for all artistic genres to experience. This film will captivate us with the history and significance of Bharata Natyam dance. It will add richness and depth to our cultural lives.
Special Note: Rana Segal, director of Hema, will be joining us at the screening to introduce her film. Segal is an award-winning director, producer and cinematographer. Her work has aired on PBS, The Learning Channel and Discovery Health Channel. She received an Emmy nomination for Painting the Town (about a Chicago muralist) and was also Emmy-nominated for Shifting Sands: On the Path to Sustainability, about the Indiana Dunes.

6:30 PMSigns of Spring, and Why They Happen



Location:  New Buffalo Township Library
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  Warming temperatures and lengthening daylight bring a rebirth to the forests, fields, and wetlands of Michiana that cheer us up after a long winter: cardinals singing in the morning, the first red-winged blackbird at the marsh, spring peepers calling from roadside ditches, and wildflowers growing quickly as the earth warms up. This cyclical timing of natural events is known as phenology and it has become an important area of study as our climate changes and nature responds in a variety of ways. Naturalist Wendy Jones guides us through the weekly changes to watch for in animals, wildflowers, and trees as spring moves from March through May and shares the role nature's calendar plays in both a healthy environment and our daily lives.
Presenter: Naturalist Wendy Jones is a popular and frequent speaker at the Friends of the Library’s Community Forums. Pat subjects have included birding, climate change, nature writing and more.
