This fill-in-the-blanks children's comedy from Disney was such a success that it spawned a number of fill-in-the-blanks sequels -- along with a real-life professional hockey team. The basic story -- outcast coach handles a team of outcast kids and turns them from losers into winners -- has been told in a number of films, including Wildcats, The Bad News Bears, Hoosiers, and Youngblood. Here the sport is hockey. Emilio Estevez is Gordon Bombay, a high-powered lawyer haunted by an incident from his past: while playing pee-wee league hockey as a child, young Gordon missed a crucial shot in the state finals game, invoking the wrath of his coach, Mr. Reilly (Lane Smith). When Gordon is arrested for drunk driving, the judge orders him to take a leave of absence and coach a hockey team of misfit kids. At first, Gordon treats the coaching job with contempt. But when his team loses to a team led by his old coach Reilly, the fire under Gordon is lit. Inspired, he leads his team on a mission to succeed. The team begins to win games and soon they are ready to face Reilly's team for the big championship game. Author: Paul Brenner

How To Talk About Slavery in 2016

Ray Rickman is a rare book dealer and is considered a leader in the promotion of African American history. He conducts architectural and African American history tours in the Brown University area of Providence.
Ray will draw on his extensive knowledge of both Rhode Island history and African American history/culture to highlight the effect Slavery had on this state and how we are still dealing with these effects today. He explains the economic basis of slavery and its African origins. He provides detailed information on how many Rhode Islanders were involved and how it elevated the entire economy of the state. Attention is paid to every aspect of the trade including manufacturing of "Negro" cloth and the building of slave ships with wood and material from every town in Rhode Island.
