Too Heavy a Yoke: Black Women and the Burden of Strength by Chanequa Walker-Barnes
Charis Books and More, Thursday, October 30 at 7:30pm
Black women are strong. At least that's what everyone says and how they are constantly depicted. But what, exactly, does this strength entail? And what price do Black women pay for it? In Too Heavy a Yoke: Black Women and the Burden of Strength, Chanequa Walker-Barnes, a psychologist and pastoral theologian, examines the burdensome yoke that the ideology of the Strong Black Woman places upon African American women. She demonstrates how the three core features of the ideology—emotional strength, caregiving, and independence—constrain the lives of African American women and predispose them to physical and emotional health problems, including diabetes, hypertension, and anxiety. She traces the historical, social, and theological influences that resulted in the evolution and maintenance of the Strong Black Woman, including the Christian church, R&B and hip-hop artists, and popular television and film. Drawing upon womanist pastoral theology and twelve-step philosophy, she calls upon pastoral caregivers to aid in the healing of African American women's identities and crafts a twelve-step program for Strong Black Women in recovery.

This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism event, and the suggested donation is $5. (added from IndieBound)

Edward J. Larson, The Return of George Washington
Atlanta History Center, Thursday, October 30 at 8pm
After leading the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War, George Washington shocked the world: he retired.

In December 1783, General Washington the most powerful man in the country , stepped down as Commander in Chief and returned to private life at Mount Vernon. Yet as Washington contentedly grew his estate, the fledgling American experiment floundered. Under the Articles of Confederation, the weak central government was unable to raise revenue to pay its debts or reach a consensus on national policy. The states bickered and grew apart. When a Constitutional Convention was established to address these problems, its chances of success looked slim. Jefferson, Madison, and the other Founding Fathers realized that only one man could unite the fractious states: George Washington. Reluctant, yet duty-bound, Washington rode to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to preside over the Convention.

Edward J. Larson, author of The Return of George Washington, is University Professor of History and holds the Hugh & Hazel Darling Chair in Law at Pepperdine University. His numerous books include Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America’s Continuing Debate over Science and Religion, for which he received a Pulitzer Prize in History. Larson splits his time between Georgia and California.

Support: This lecture is sponsored by the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati and the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Georgia.

Charis Birthday Week: Azar Nafisi (Reading Lolita in Tehran) Reads at Georgia Center for the Book
Charis Books and More, Monday, November 3 at 7:15pm
Charis kicks off its 40th anniversary year celebrations by welcoming Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran and The republic of imagination, to Decatur in conjunction with the Georgia Center for the Book. The republic of imagination AMERICA IN THREE BOOKS Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught The Great Gatsby and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating followup, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What Reading Lolita in Tehran was for Iran, The republic of imagination is for America. Taking her cue from a challenge thrown to her in Seattle, where a skeptical reader told her that Americans don’t care about books the way they did back in Iran, she energetically responds to those who say fiction has nothing to teach us. Blending memoir and polemic with close readings of her favorite American novels—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Babbitt, and The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, among others—she invites us to join her as citizens of her “Republic of Imagination,” a country where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy and the only passport to entry is a free mind and a willingness to dream.

Aiken Lecture: Charles M. Blow, Fire Shut Up in My Bones
Atlanta History Center, Monday, November 3 at 8pm
Fire Shut Up in My Bones is the story of how one of America’s most innovative and respected journalists found his voice by coming to terms with a painful past. Charles Blow’s indelible coming-of-age takes place in an arresting, out-of-time American place: a segregated town in Louisiana where slavery’s legacy felt close, reverberating in the elders’ tales and in the near-constant wash of violence.

Blow’s mother was a fiercely driven woman with five sons, brass knuckles in her glove box, and a job plucking poultry at a nearby factory. When her philandering husband finally pushed her over the edge, she fired a pistol at his fleeing back, missing every shot thanks to “love that blurred her vision and bent the barrel.” Charles was the baby of the family, fiercely attached to his “do-right,” not “good-time” mother. Until one day — a day that forever divided his life into Before and After — when an older cousin took advantage of the very young boy. Charles’s escape from that world — first to a nearby state university, where he joined a black fraternity despite brutal hazing, then experienced a social and sexual privilege that seemed at first like everything he ever needed — is a searing, redemptive story that will work its way into the deepest chambers of your heart.

Charles M. Blow has been a columnist at the New York Times since 2008 and has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and HBO. He lives in Brooklyn with his three children. (jasbro)

Aiken Lecture: Dick Lehr, The Birth of A Nation: How a Legendary Filmmaker and a Crusading Editor Reignited America’s Civil War
Atlanta History Center, Thursday, November 6 at 8pm
In 1915, two men—one a journalist agitator, the other a technically brilliant filmmaker—incited a public confrontation that roiled America, pitting black against white, Hollywood against Boston, and free speech against civil rights. Monroe Trotter and D.W. Griffith fought over the nation’s first blockbuster film, Birth of a Nation, a film that dramatized the Civil War and Reconstruction in a post-Confederate South and transformed the still-young America in profound ways.

Violent protests against the film flared up across the country. Monroe Trotter, a Boston newspaper editor and African-American rights activist, had stood up to wage a battle on every possible stage across the nation to halt the spread of the movie. This was a revolutionary moment for an increasingly diversified nation struggling to define its identity, where citizens battled not only over the future of cinema, mass media, and marketing, but for American civil liberties and the nascent Civil Rights Movement.

Dick Lehr, a professor of journalism at Boston University and author of The Birth of A Nation: How a Legendary Filmmaker and a Crusading Editor Reignited America’s Civil War, was a reporter at the Boston Globe for nearly two decades. He has won numerous national and regional journalism awards, and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in investigative reporting. He is the author of The Fence: A Police Cover-up Along Boston's Racial Divide, a Boston Globe bestseller; and coauthor of the New York Times bestseller and Edgar Award winner Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, the FBI, and a Devil’s Deal, and its sequel Whitey: The Life of America’s Most Notorious Mob Boss.

MMH Lecture: Ann Short Chirhart and Kathleen Clark, Georgia Women: Their Lives and Times- Volume 2
The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Wednesday, November 12 at 7pm
Georgia Women: Their Lives and Times-Volume 2 is the second of two volumes that together explore the diverse and changing patterns of Georgia women’s lives. Women were vital actors in the history of Georgia, as well as key figures in national and global developments over the course of the twentieth century. However, their leadership and participation in social, cultural, and political arenas have tended to be overlooked.

Volume 2 focuses on eighteen Georgia women from the turn of the century to the 1980s, and illuminates how women during the twentieth century expanded their opportunities, pushed for equality, promoted various organizations and political interests, pioneered women’s roles in some professions, and became leading writers and artists in the nation. They grappled with the ongoing oppressions of Jim Crow, the legacy of two world wars, the Great Depression, the Cold War Era, the Civil Rights Movement, the growth of conservatism, and the memory of the Civil War.

Ann Short Chirhart is associate professor of history at Indiana State University and the author of Torches of Light: Georgia Teachers and the Coming of the Modern South. Kathleen Ann Clark is associate professor of history at the University of Georgia and the author of Defining Moments: African American Commemoration and Political Culture in the South, 1863 - 1913.

Aiken Lecture: Douglas R. Egerton, The Wars of Reconstruction: The Brief, Violent History of America’s Most Progressive Era
Atlanta History Center, Thursday, November 13 at 8pm
By 1870, just five years after Confederate surrender and thirteen years after the Dred Scott decision ruled blacks ineligible for citizenship, Congressional action had ended slavery and given the vote to black men. That same year, Hiram Revels and Joseph Hayne Rainey became the first African-American U.S. senator and congressman respectively. In South Carolina, only twenty years after the death of arch-secessionist John C. Calhoun, a black man, Jasper J. Wright, took a seat on the state's Supreme Court. Not even the most optimistic abolitionists had thought such milestones would occur in their lifetimes. The brief years of Reconstruction marked the United States' most progressive moment prior to the Civil Rights Movement.

Previous histories of Reconstruction have focused on Washington politics. But in The Wars of Reconstruction: The Brief, Violent History of America’s Most Progressive Era, a sweeping, prodigiously researched narrative, Douglas Egerton brings a much bigger, even more dramatic story into view, exploring state and local politics and tracing the struggles of some fifteen hundred African-American officeholders, in both the North and South, who fought entrenched white resistance. Tragically, their movement was met by ruthless violence-not just riotous mobs, but also targeted assassination. With stark evidence, Egerton shows that Reconstruction, often cast as a "failure" or a doomed experiment, was rolled back by murderous force.

The descendant of North Carolina slaveholders, Douglas R. Egerton writes about the intersections of race and politics in early America. Egerton received his Ph.D. from Georgetown University and has taught at Le Moyne College, Colgate University, Cornell University, and the University College Dublin. The author of seven books, including Year of Meteors: Stephen Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, and the Election That Brought on the Civil War, and He Shall Go Out Free: The Lives of Denmark Vesey.

MMH Lecture: Ron Rash, Something Rich and Strange: Selected Stories
The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, Monday, November 17 at 7pm
No one captures the complexities of Appalachia as evocatively and indelibly as author and poet Ron Rash. Winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, two O Henry prizes, and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, Rash brilliantly illuminates the tensions between the traditional and the modern, the old and new south, tenderness and violence, man and nature. Though the focus is regional, the themes of Rash’s work are universal, striking an emotional chord that resonates deep within each of our lives.

Something Rich and Strange: Selected Stories showcases this acclaimed master’s artistry and craftsmanship in thirty stories culled from his previously published collections. Each work of short fiction demonstrates Rash’s dazzling ability to evoke the heart and soul of this land and its people—men and women inexorably tethered to the geography that defines and shapes them. Something Rich and Strange is an iconic work from an American literary virtuoso.

Ron Rash is the author of the 2009 PEN/Faulkner Finalist and New York Times bestselling novel Serena, in addition to four other prizewinning novels, including Nothing Gold Can Stay, One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River, and The World Made Straight; four collections of poems; and five collections of stories, among them Burning Bright, which won the 2010 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and Chemistry and Other Stories, which was a finalist for the 2007 PEN/Faulkner Award. Twice the recipient of the O. Henry Prize, he teaches at Western Carolina University.
