Héctor Fernández L'Hoeste, Cumbia!: Scenes of a Migrant Latin American Music Genre
Atlanta History Center, Thursday, February 5 at 8pm
Cumbia is a musical form that originated in northern Colombia and then spread throughout Latin America and wherever Latin Americans travel and settle. It has become one of the most popular musical genre in the Americas. Its popularity is largely due to its stylistic flexibility as it absorbs and mixes with the local musical styles it encounters. Known for its appeal to workers, the music takes on different styles and meanings from place to place, and even, as the contributors to this collection show, from person to person. Cumbia is a different music among the working classes of northern Mexico, Latin American immigrants in New York City, Andean migrants to Lima, and upper-class Colombians, who now see the music that they once disdained as a source of national prestige.

The contributors to Cumbia!: Scenes of a Migrant Latin American Music Genre look at particular manifestations of cumbia through their disciplinary lenses of musicology, sociology, history, anthropology, linguistics, and literary criticism. Taken together, their essays highlight how intersecting forms of identity—such as nation, region, class, race, ethnicity, and gender—are negotiated through interaction with the music.

Héctor Fernández L'Hoeste is Professor in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Director of the Center for Latin American and Latino/a Studies at Georgia State University. He is coeditor, with Deborah Pacini Hernandez and Eric Zolov, of Rockin' Las Américas: The Global Politics of Rock in Latin/o America.

Driving the King an Evening with Ravi Howard
Charis Books and More, Thursday, February 12 at 7:30pm
Charis is thrilled to welcome Ravi Howard with his newest book, Driving the King: A daring and brilliant novel that explores race and class in 1950s America, witnessed through the experiences of Nat King Cole and his driver, Nat Weary. The war is over, the soldiers are returning, and Nat King Cole is back in his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama, for a rare performance. His childhood friend, Nat Weary, plans to propose to his sweetheart, and the singer will honor their moment with a special song. While the world has changed, segregated Jim Crow Montgomery remains the same. When a white man attacks Cole with a pipe, Weary leaps from the audience to defend him—an act that will lead to a ten-year prison sentence. But the singer will not forget his friend and the sacrifice he made. Six months before Weary is released, he receives a remarkable offer: will he be Nat King Cole’s driver and bodyguard in L.A.? It is the promise of a new life removed from the terror, violence, and degradation of Jim Crow Alabama. Weary discovers that, while Los Angeles is far different from the Deep South, it a place of discrimination, mistrust, and intolerance where a black man—even one as talented and popular as Nat King Cole—is not wholly welcome. An indelible portrait of prejudice and promise, friendship and loyalty, Driving the King is a daring look at race and class in pre-Civil Rights America, played out in the lives of two remarkable men. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event and the suggested donation is $5.

Ai-Jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Worker's Alliance presents The Age of Dignity
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, February 17 at 7pm
Join Charis in welcoming Ai-jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Worker's Alliance, as she presents her book The Age of Dignity. About Ai-jen Poo: Ai-jen Poo, Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) and Co-director of the Caring Across Generations campaign, has been organizing immigrant women workers since 1996. In 2000 she co-founded Domestic Workers United, the New York organization that spearheaded the successful passage of the state’s historic Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in 2010. In 2007, DWU helped organize the first national domestic workers convening, out of which formed the NDWA. As Co-director of Caring Across Generations, Ai-jen leads a movement that is inspiring thousands of careworkers, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, and lawmakers to work together to ensure that all people can mature in this country with dignity, security and independence.

About The Age of Dignity: By 2035, the number of Americans over the age of eighty-five will more than double to 11.5 million. Americans are living longer than ever before, a massive shift that calls into question our ability to care for our families and support our loved ones to age with dignity. And that question touches each of us. Against this backdrop,The Age of Dignity offers specific, sustainable solutions for transforming the inadequate and out-of-date system of long-term care in America today. Through recent research and personal stories, Ai-jen Poo describes the mounting pressures facing a growing majority of American families. She also puts forth a compelling plan, drawn from hundreds of successful experiments across the country that will not only benefit families and workers and their ability to form strong relationships of care, but will also generate millions of new jobs and breathe new life into our national ideals of independence, fairness, and dignity. NDWA Atlanta Chapter Info: The National Domestic Workers Alliance is thrilled to be building a growing chapter of African American domestic workers in Atlanta. NDWA was founded in Atlanta in 2007, and Atlanta has been home to the domesticworker’s movement that we are building on – from the Atlanta washerwomen’s strike of 1881, led by the Washing Society; to the Atlanta-based National Domestic Workers Union of America in the 1960s and 70s led by Dorothy Bolden. We are excited and proud to deepen our organizing effort in Atlanta and the South! You can read more about our work at http://www.domesticworkers.org/atlanta. This is a Charis Circle Urban Sustainability and Wellness Event and the suggested donation is $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
