11:30:00 AM - Catching Hell from All Quarter: Anti-Klan Activists and the Un-Masking of the Invisible Empire. A lecture by Sean Rost. - William Woods History Education alum, Mizzou PHD candidate, and current adjunct instructor Sean Rost will present on the strategies used by anti-Ku Klux Klan activists throughout the United States, with a particular focus on Missouri. Rost contends that while Klansmen/women utilized patriotic rhetoric, philanthropy, and Christianity to cloak themselves in robes of respectability, anti-Klan activists (including Jews, Catholics, and African Americans) relied upon allies in politics, the press, and the pulpit to rally their fellow citizens to oppose, and ultimately un-mask, the Invisible Empire.

7:07:00 PM - Center of the World - What was the experience of an ordinary person like, from week to week, and month to month, as Nazism took hold in Germany in 1933 and 1934? The film Center of the World explores that question by taking filmgoers to a small village in a place akin to Germany’s Ozarks. Center of the World is a film within the acclaimed series Heimat: A Chronicle of Germany (1984) by Edgar Reitz. Reitz wrote and directed this film. He tells the personal stories of people living in the village of Shabbach amidst the rise of the Nazism as poetically and realistically as Mark Twain might have done. Dr. Steve Huenneke will host a discussion on ethics after the film. This LEAD event is in association with All Through the Night by Shirley Lauro.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program created by the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center over three decades ago. MBSR has been taught worldwide in a variety of settings, including in the fields of education, law, health care, business, athletics, and criminal justice. People who have completed the MBSR program and continue to practice mindfulness report a sense of peace and calmness as they learn how to use their innate resources to respond more effectively to stress and the challenges of daily life. People also report being able to focus better and improve performance with greater insight and creativity. This session will introduce you to mindfulness concepts and skills and discuss application that may benefit your life.
