6:30 PMThe Bridgman Red Raid



Location:  New Buffalo Township Library
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  
In 1922, during America’s first Red Scare—when labor unrest and anarchist activity was seen as a socialist threat—Communists from across the country met in the dunes near Bridgman. An informant tipped off federal agents about the meeting, and agents from Chicago searched for the group dressed as farmers. One of the Communists spotted them and alerted his fellow meeting-goers. When the feds raided the meeting the next day, only 17 of the 76 attendees remained, and only two of those were tried. One was acquitted due to a hung jury. The second was convicted and appealed all the way to the Supreme Court, but died before the court upheld his verdict. A dissent from Justice Louis Brandeis later became the basis for declaring criminal syndicalism laws—laws that mostly targeted labor unions—unconstitutional.
Presenter: Nick Bogert, The Regional of Three Oaks Museum. Bogert’s presentations are notable for being especially well-researched and professionally executed.

6:30 PMHarbor Country Film Group with Eve Moran



Location:  New Buffalo Township Library
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  Whale Rider, a 2002 film from director Niki Caro, takes us to a small New Zealand coastal village. There, a 12-year-old Maori girl, Pai, dreams of becoming her community’s first female chief. But custom and tradition block her way. And her own loving grandfather will most test her courage, strength and determination. Universal in its themes, Whale Rider shows that we can rise above the negativity brought on by others and become who and what we want to be. In his four-star review of this hugely popular film, Roger Ebert wrote, “There is a vast difference between movies for 12-year-old girls, and movies about 12-year-old girls, and Whale Rider proves it.”

6:30 PMFive-Star General: The Heroic but Stormy Career of Douglas MacArthur



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  
Only one of six U.S. Army officers promoted to five-star rank, General Douglas MacArthur had a heroic but stormy military career. He led troops in combat during World War I, served as Army Chief-of-Staff in the 1930s, and directed the island-hopping strategy that helped defeat Japan in World War II. He governed Japan after the war and served as the U.N. commander in the Korean conflict. But this daring soldier led troops who tear-gassed American World War I veterans in the streets of Washington, D.C. in 1932, was egotistical and pompous, and got fired by President Harry Truman for challenging civilian control of the military during the Korean War. Please join us, on the eve of Veterans Day, for a look at the patriotic but controversial General Douglas MacArthur.
Presenter: Tim Moore, Lake Michigan College. Tim’s spirited presentations on events and people in U.S. history have made him a favorite in the Community Forum series.
