Equal Time: The Causes of the American Revolution from the British PerspectiveEqual Time: The Causes of the American Revolution from the British Perspective
Tuesday, April 24, 3:30 - 5:00pm

THIS PROGRAM IS POSTPONED. There will be no lecture today due to a scheduling issue with the Church. We will post the new date for Dr. Flynn as soon as we know it.
There are two sides to every story.  We all know how British policies at the end of the 18th Century drove the American Colonists to revolution and the declaration of independence, but what were the British thinking when they made these policies? To the British, the policies were logical, fair and appropriate, and designed to keep the colonies in the empire.  Where did they go wrong? Our speaker, John F.M. Flynn, holds a Masters and PhD in British History from Columbia University. He is currently the Director of the Cambridge Study Abroad Program at Westchester Community College. This program is free and open to the entire community.  Refreshments at 3:30; lecture at 4:00pm.

Moses Pierce (1816 -1886) and Esther Carpenter Pierce (1815 -1900) left no papers or letters that would document their courage in fighting slavery before, during, and even after the Civil War, risking everything they had by participating in Westchester’s Underground Railroad.  Dr. Dorothee von Huene Greenberg will bring to life the inspiring story of these two extraordinary abolitionists movement in America.  Lecture begins at 4:00pm, coffee and refreshments at 3:30pm.This program is free and open to the entire community.

Dorothee von Huene Greenberg received her doctoral degree in Comparative Literature from New York University.  As a Professor of English at Pace University in Pleasantville, New York, she taught World Literature, Literatures of Diversity, Women’s Studies, and Gender, Race and Class, and served on the University’s Diversity Advisory Board for 22 years.  Her most recent research, “Moses Pierce, Westchester’s Friend of Freedom,” was published in the winter 2012 issue of The Westchester Historian.  A refugee who fled her home as a child just days ahead of the Russian army, she has a unique and visceral understanding of the freedom seeker’s mentality. Now retired after 46 years of teaching, she is focusing on strengthening gun laws and ending mass incarceration in America.

Wednesdays at 1:30pm; Fridays at 1:45pm

The Rye Arts Center is committed to making the arts accessible to those with varying abilities and backgrounds.  These specialized classes stimulate mind, body and emotion in an enjoyable and safe environment. They offer participants the opportunity to learn from professionally trained dancers about stretching and strengthening muscles, with an emphasis on enhancing physical awareness and grace through modern, ballet and folk dance forms.

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms. Free.
