Annual Kessler film:  "Who Will Write Our History" @ MSU Library Green Room (4th Floor West)

Annual Kessler film: “Who Will Write Our History?

“In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary.

Written, produced and directed by Roberta Grossman and executive produced by Nancy Spielberg, Who Will Write Our History mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.”

Professor Amy Simon will be introducing the film and leading a discussion of it afterwards.

Luis A. Sahagun Visiting Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies Lecture @ MSU Broad Art Museum | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Luis A. Sahagun | Wednesday, November 20 | Broad Art Museum | 7pm

Luis Sahagun is an AAHD Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies. Sahagun’s drawings, sculptures, paintings, and performances confront the palpable inescapability of race and transforms art into an act of reclamation. As a previously undocumented immigrant and former laborer, Sahagun’s work focus on the importance of Latinx cultures and contributions in order to combat the anti-immigration and anti-Latinx national rhetoric that persists throughout the country.

Support for this lecture is provided by the MSU Federal Credit Union, Broad Art Museum, The College of Arts and Letters, and the Department of Art, Art History, and Design.
