Private Capitol Tour

capitolDate:   Tuesday,September 30, 2014

The Capitol is among the most architecturally impressive and symbolically important buildings in the world. The Senate and the House of Representatives have met here for more than two centuries. Begun in 1793, the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored. Today it stands as a monument not only to its builders but also to the American people and their government. The office of Representative Chris Van Hollen will lead us through a private tour of the Capitol.

Meet Linda Trope

Date:   Monday, October 20, 2014

Meet and see the work of this unusual artist, who developed her style from living and travelling in South India. She was fascinated by the South Indian temple art and the diverse dancing figures covering temple interiors and exteriors. She has a background in textile design, painting and working in three-dimensional soft sculpture. Evolving further, she has developed her own style of pointillism to create layers of rich color and detail. She exhibits her work both nationally at juried exhibitions and at local galleries and public spaces in the Baltimore area.

Documentary ‘Anita’

Critically acclaimed documentary ‘Anita’ to open in Boston area this weekend

Brandeis professor Anita Hill will participate in Q&A sessions following this weekend’s Boston area premiere of “Anita,” the critically acclaimed documentary film that chronicles her decision to speak truth to power during the confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991 (view the trailer). The film also opens this weekend in Washington, D.C.; Atlanta; Chicago; and Seattle.The Brandeis Alumni Association organized a special, private screening for Brandeis alumni and friends on April 3, which sold out within hours of tickets going on sale. The film will also be shown in Waltham and Cambridge (see details below).

Opening-weekend screenings were held March 21 and 22 in New York, Northern California and Southern California. Professor Hill made appearances at the New York events.

Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock, the film marks the first time Professor Hill speaks in depth about what led her to testify before the U.S. Senate and the obstacles she faced in simply telling the truth. She has become an American icon, empowering millions of women and men around the world to stand up for equality and justice. At Brandeis, she serves as senior advisor to the provost and is a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management.
