Behind the Camera: The Photographers of This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Join Dr. Deborah Dash Moore, Editor in Chief of the Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization as she explores photographs featured in the special exhibition, This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, and the photographers who risked everything to take them. Photographers like Bob Adelman, Maria Varela, and Matt Heron weren’t just journalists, they were artists and they were activists, using their cameras to document moments that would become historical records of what happened during Freedom Summer in 1964 and beyond. A fascinating discussion for anyone who is interested in photography, journalism, and/or the Civil Rights Movement. Don’t miss it!

St. Edward High School presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Nov. 17-20.
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Edwardian Players, a theatre group from St. Edward High School, will present their fall musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at St. Edward High School, 13500 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, Ohio. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 17-19 at 7:30pm, and Sunday November 20 at 3:00pm.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. It’s a delightful den of comedic genius.

Senior cast members include Paige Bradford of N. Royalton, Justin Salazar of Richmond Hts., Ella Sonby of Cleveland, Cody Wagner of Avon and Colin Wheeler of Westlake.
