The Breman in conjunction with the Ballethnic Dance Company has commissioned a series of dances based on the works of the prominent artists featured in A Jazz Memoir: The Photography of Herb Snitzer. Join us for a night of dance for the cost of donation. Any size donation will grant you access to the event, as little as 1 cent or as much as you like.
 
The piece called 'Jazzing: Memoirs in Jazz' is inspired by the photo exhibition and discussions with Herb about his experience, particuarly with Jazz artists and navigating through life with these musical geniuses during racial inequity and the Civil Rights Movement. 
 
The Ballethnic Dance company is one of only 3 black ballet companies in the US, and the founders, Waverly T. Lucas II and Nena Gilreath, were dancers with the original Black ballet company, Dance Theatre of Harlem. They came here and built a company. They own a studio in East Point.

    Book Talk with Howard Reich

    The Art of Inventing Hope: Intimate Conversations with Elie Wiesel offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the world’s most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich. What had started as an interview assignment from the Chicago Tribune quickly evolved into a friendship and a partnership. Here Wiesel – at the end of his life – looks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich. The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers, and Reich illuminates will not only help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, but will benefit everyone, young and old. Howard Reich will be interviewed by Alison Pure-Slovin, Midwest Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center

    Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

    The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
