Community Event
"Gender Revolution" movie showing
Free showing of National Geographic's "Gender Revolution with Katie Couric." In spring of 2016, Couric attended the series premiere of the network’s "The Story of God" with Morgan Freeman, where she met Nat Geo CEO Courtney Monroe. The pair struck up a wide-ranging conversation that ultimately sowed the seeds for "Gender Revolution," a partnership of Katie Couric Media, National Geographic Studios and World of Wonder Productions. The two-hour deep-dive explores the complexities of gender in everyday life — across generations, social strata, the nation and the planet. To better understand this complex social and scientific issue, Couric crisscrossed the country, talking with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors — and, in the program’s most moving segments, families likes the Fords — to learn more about the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern culture on gender fluidity. Panel discussion follows.

Rock
A Night with Janis Joplin
Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and became the queen of rock ‘n’ roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with southern comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby,” and “Summertime,” this sensational show is a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her iconic musical influences: Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.
