Description: New singers and visitors are always welcome (no singing experience/ability required) to join in singing from The Sacred Harp — an American shape-note songbook. First published in 1844, it is “the best collection of sacred songs, hymns, odes, and anthems ever offered the singing public for general use,” as the book itself boasts. Its eclectic repertoire, updated in each edition, includes tunes inherited from the folk tradition and other forms of hymnody, as well as music written especially for the shape-note singing practice by colonial New England singing-school masters, antebellum collectors of folk hymns and camp-meeting tunes, patriarchs of the great Depression-era singing families of Georgia and Alabama and their descendants, and composers of the modern-day Sacred Harp diaspora.

No singing experience/ability required. New singers and visitors are always welcome. If you have difficulty getting into the building, please call or text Ian (203-824-3426).

"Bulldog and Panther: The 1970 May Day Rally and Yale" - Mon, February 10, 2014

Community Events - 1 hour 2 min ago
When: Monday, February 10, 2014 - Friday, May 16, 2014 (All day)
Where:
   Sterling Memorial Library (SML), Memorabilia Room
   120 High St., New Haven, CT 06511
Tags: arts, community, exhibition, other


Description: 1969 and 1970 were politically tumultuous years in the United States and indeed around the world. Unrest in U.S. urban areas and on college and university campuses focused on racial and gender inequalities, the ongoing U.S. war in Vietnam, and demands by students for more responsive and inclusive campus decision making. On 19 May 1969 Black Panther Party (BPP) member Alex Rackley was kidnapped and killed in New Haven by other BPP members who believed he was an FBI informant. In a time of intense FBI counter-intelligence focus on neutralizing the BPP’s influence in U.S. cities, the broad swath of indictments for the murder seemed an overreach to many. The defendants were referred to as the New Haven Nine, an allusion to the famous Chicago Seven, and included Bobby Seale, national BPP Chairman, who had spoken at Yale the day of the murder. Seale was extradited to Connecticut on the approval of California Governor Ronald Reagan, and the trial was set to begin in May 1970. A large protest rally was organized on the New Haven Green, scheduled for 1-3 May 1970. This exhibit explores the events leading up to the New Haven May Day rally, and its impact on Yale, the New Haven community, and beyond.

The exhibit is curated by Sarah Schmidt, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and Bill Landis, Manuscripts and Archives. For more information contact mssa.reference@yale.edu or (203) 432-1744.

The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:45pm.
