  • Nothing Less! Medicare For All Town Hall

    NOTHING LESS!
    Medicare for All Town Hall with Michael Lighty

    As the 2020 election cycle approaches, political elites will do everything in their power to distract from the demand for a universal, single-payer insurance system, and to water down the solution with “moderate,” “market-friendly” approaches. Perhaps no other demand since the postwar era has provoked as powerful an opposition as the demand for Medicare for All. The ruling class knows just how much the socialization of health insurance threatens its power.

    Come out to hear labor and healthcare leaders on why we must demand nothing less than Medicare for All, and how we can fight to keep this the defining issue of our political moment.

    With powerful donors lined up in opposition to single-payer and prominent Democrats either cagily supporting Medicare for All or actively attempting to undermine it with counterfeit copycat legislation, it’s clear that we cannot trust establishment politicos to give the people what we overwhelmingly demand.

    That’s why we need to come out swinging and this town hall will help launch a new push to move Medicare for All from a demand to reality.

    Michael Lighty is considered a preeminent spokesperson and expert on Medicare for All. For over 25 years, Lighty has organized, written and spoken on the subject. He is currently a lead policy analyst for a single-payer bill, SB 562, the Healthy California Act. From 1994 until 2018, Michael worked for the California Nurses Association/NNU where he coordinated campaigns for an HMO patients’ bill of rights, clean money elections, and nationally for a Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street. Lighty was the first openly LGBTQ Commissioner for the Port of Oakland. He was Jerry Brown’s first mayoral appointee to the Oakland Planning Commission in 1999, and was appointed by Oakland Mayor Ronald Dellums to the Port of Oakland Board of Commissioners, in 2010. He serves on the Board of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom Center in Oakland, CA, where he lives with his spouse.

  • Indigo Dye Class and Screening of Presentation by Dr. Nic Butler
    11:00 am-1:00 pm
    Aug-10-19

    1735 N. Woodmere Drive, Charleston, SC 29407

    1735 N. Woodmere Drive, Charleston, SC 29407

    Attend a hands-on class to learn the plant-to-pigment indigo dye process, including various cultivars, dye extraction, and methods to create and maintain an indigo vat. The history of indigo will be discussed briefly, and a more comprehensive account will be shared during a screening of Dr. Nic Butler’s lecture, “Indigo in the Fabric of Early South Carolina.”

     

    Indigo plants, prized for the vibrant blue dye they yield, formed an important part of South Carolina’s agricultural economy during our colonial era. Many historians point to Eliza Lucas Pinckney as the figure most responsible for introducing indigo to the Lowcountry around 1740, but the efforts of her contemporaries and the broader economic context of her work have received far less attention in recent years. CCPL’s historian, Dr. Nic Butler, provides an illustrated overview of the historical context of indigo’s rise and fall in early South Carolina.

  • Exhibitions: “Katrina Andry: Over There and Here is Me and Me” and “Colin Quashie: Linked”
    All day
    Aug-23-19-Dec-07-19

    161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

    161 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

    The work of Katrina Andry probes the power structures of race-based stereotypes. For her exhibition at the Halsey Institute, Andry will explore the stereotypes that engender gentrification. Using printmaking and installation, she creates visceral images that beckon viewers to examine their own preconceived notions of society. As Charleston’s neighborhoods are rapidly changing in multifarious ways, this exhibition will provide a springboard for community-wide conversations on gentrification.


    Colin Quashie creates images that comment on contemporary racial stereotypes. Combining historical relics and artifacts with icons from past and present popular culture, Quashie sharply critiques the way people of color are portrayed in modern visual culture. Using his signature caustic wit, he blends images to allow viewers to more fully explore how images of African Americans and Black culture are constructed today.

    In his latest series, called Linked, Quashie juxtaposes images of well-known Black figures with other representations of artifacts to comment on stereotypes as they exist today. In Gabriel, Quashie tweaks an image of Louie Armstrong, updating his signature trumpet with a set of slave shackles. Similarly, in Rose Colored, he creates an image of Harriet Tubman donning a pair of rose-colored glasses, referencing the abolitionist’s view of slaveholders, for whom she still held a level of empathy. With these works, Quashie teases out underlying stereotypes, exposing them for all to see more plainly.

    ___________________________________________
    PLEASE NOTE:

    After much thought and consideration, we have decided to implement a new approach to admission costs at our opening receptions. In years past, we have provided food and drink for members and visitors alike, all free of charge. Faced with some College-wide financial cutbacks we have decided that beginning in fall 2019, College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff, and current Halsey Institute members receive free admission to our opening receptions. All non-members will be charged $5 admission. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we adjust our programming in a new budgetary climate.

    Correlating programming and admission to the galleries for the duration of the exhibitions is and will remain free and open to the public.

  • All About Indigo: Dye Class and Screening of Presentation by Dr. Nic Butler
    11:00 am-1:00 pm
    Aug-24-19

    222 Baker St, McClellanville, SC 29458, USA

    222 Baker St, McClellanville, SC 29458, USA

    Attend a hands-on class to learn the plant-to-pigment indigo dye process, including various cultivars, dye extraction, and methods to create and maintain an indigo vat. The history of indigo will be discussed briefly, and a more comprehensive account will be shared during a screening of Dr. Nic Butler’s lecture, “Indigo in the Fabric of Early South Carolina.”

     

    Indigo plants, prized for the vibrant blue dye they yield, formed an important part of South Carolina’s agricultural economy during our colonial era. Many historians point to Eliza Lucas Pinckney as the figure most responsible for introducing indigo to the Lowcountry around 1740, but the efforts of her contemporaries and the broader economic context of her work have received far less attention in recent years. CCPL’s historian, Dr. Nic Butler, provides an illustrated overview of the historical context of indigo’s rise and fall in early South Carolina.
