Last day of Kwanzaa – Imani (Faith)


MoM Ridaz Bicycle Club 13th annual Sock The Homeless, 11a-5p, Echo Park BoatHouse, 751 Echo Park Ave, LA. MoM Ridaz Bicycle Club was established in 2008 by a group of friends in Echo Park. This club has long believed in an all inclusive motto as well as an urge to give back to the community. MoM Ridaz were the forefront for CicLAvia’s Intersection Angel’s where we would hold traffic for the event in full patches, with dance and smiles all around. While riding around LA, many MoMs realized there was a resource missing in our community. With many of these club members having experienced hardships for themselves, we saw the less fortunate on the street suffering greatly during the winter months. It was in 2010 that we began collecting funds throughout the year to then buy beanies, scarves, socks, and gloves and distribute them on the 1st of January (no matter how hungover we all are).

Film: Sorry To Bother You, directed by Boots Riley, 7p, Skid Row History Museum and Archive, 250 S. Broadway, LA 90012, sponsored by LA Poverty Department. Expect the unexpected in Boots Riley’s directorial debut, Sorry to Bother You — an outrageously surreal look at capitalism, corporate greed and fractured workplace dynamics. In an alternate, present-day version of Oaklan, struggling telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe., 213-413-1077


Jan 7 – Sat.   


Uncovering and Building Upon the Hidden History of Black and Brown Solidarity by Professor Ron Wilkins, 6p. It’s been horrific to see the anti-Blackness from the LA City Council. Ron Wilkins was a key figure in the Watts Rebellion as well as the Community Action Patrol and has made it his mission to educate about the history of Black and Latino solidarity throughout the world, and why we need it today. For years, he hosted “Continent to Continent: An African Issues Magazine” on KPFK. Midnight Books, 7201 Greenleaf Ave, Whittier CA $10 suggested donation.


ALFRED HITCHCOCK: THE MASTER: 7:30p, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1934, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Park Circus, UK, 75mns, Digital) 9:15pm THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1956, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Universal, USA, 120mns, 35mm)The Secret Movie Club Theater, 1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA 90021. The 1934 version of The Man Who Knew Too Much plays almost like a Rosetta Stone for the obsessions, narratives, atmospheres Alfred Hitchcock would explore for the rest of his life. The movie tells the story of Bob and Jill Lawrence, on vacation in Switzerland, who get involved in an international plot to assassinate a world leader. When they return to London, they have to interrupt a concert at the Royal Albert Hall to prevent the murder. Here in the first The Man Who Knew Too Much we already see his brilliant grasp of cinematic language, including a stunning shot during the attempted assassination sequence. Hitch would remake The Man Who Knew Too Much 22 years later in Hollywood with Doris Day and James Stewart. He would keep some elements-the couple on holiday, the planned assassination at a concert-but he would also tweak and introduce others-the couple’s child now plays a major part. Most importantly, The Man Who Knew Too Much 1956 would solidify the Alfred Hitchcock-Bernard Hermann music composing collaboration. A collaboration maybe only surpassed by Steven Spielberg-John Williams in terms of its impact on American pop culture ears.

Kicking off the New Year on a positive note, the Jan. 8 workshop of the Committee for Racial Justice will return to in person meetings at Virginia Ave. Park and will have the Black Apology by the City of Santa Monica as its topic. If you haven’t seen it, it can be viewed on the Santa Monica City Council website under their meeting agendas – Nov. 29th, item 4A.   Members of our community will read out the entire City Council statement of apology for those who are present on the 8th.

Our speaker that evening, the Rev. Rebecca Benefiel Bijur, will share her perspectives on the concept of apology, followed by a participatory group discussion on how we feel the apology can be transformed into actions that would be meaningful and helpful to people.

Rev. Bijur serves as the Affiliated Community Minister of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church in Canoga Park and is a frequent guest preacher at UU congregations across Southern California. She served as Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica from 2010-2017.  Rev. Bijur is raising three children with her husband in Santa Monica and works with St. Joseph Center in Venice to advance social and economic equity for people experiencing homelessness. Find out where she will be speaking next at

One of her favorite quotes on her website is: “Hope is an ax you break down doors with in an emergency; because hope should shove you out the door… Hope… calls for action; action is impossible without hope.”

Everyone is welcome to the Jan. 8 workshop that will kick off CRJ’s 2023 programming. It will take place at 6:30pm in the community meeting room of the Thelma Terry Building at Virginia Avenue Park.  As is our custom, we will share food at 6pm and the program will start at 6:30pm.  For those unable to join us in person, register with the following link in order to be sent the link to share with us virtually:–ppjkrGNAhO5ryCvXHiSC5Twqk4GOB

21st annual Close Guantanamo NOW Vigil, 12n-1:30p, RSVP Here:

Join ICUJP and allies online or in-person to mark the 21st anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and the human rights violations and torture it spawned. At its peak, the illegal detention center at Guantanamo Bay held some 800 men and boys of Muslim faith – most of whom were never charged with a crime. Today, 35 prisoners still languish there. After the Guantanamo Bay prison camp was opened, the Bush Administration commissioned the torture memos, a series of documents designed to retroactively provide a pseudo-legal justification for crimes against humanity. To date no one in the Bush administration has been called to account for writing and implementing these documents. Speakers:

ALFRED HITCHCOCK: THE MASTER Series 7p REBECCA (1940, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Swank, USA, 130m); 9:30p FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, AGFA, USA, 120mns, DCP) The Secret Movie Club Theater, 1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA 90021. Alfred Hitchcock made only one movie that won the BEST PICTURE Oscar: his very first American movie Rebecca. A kind of strange rough draft for Vertigo, Rebecca showcases what a crafty and intelligent director Hitchcock could be, even with material that didn’t originate from himself. Determined to make his mark in Hollywood, Hitch found numerous genius visual strategies to show how Rebecca’s presence haunts everyone – Maxim, Mrs. Danvers-and even the Manderlay estate itself. We follow Rebecca with Hitchcock’s second American picture, Foreign Correspondent starring Joel McCrea. Foreign Correspondent tells the story of journalist McCrea as he discovers a cabal of spies plotting the destruction of Europe in the lead-up to World War II.

A Special Zócalo/Da Poetry Lounge Spoken Word Performance: Does Democracy Need Poets? 7p, Zocalo Public Square • Arizona State University • Smithsonian, ASU CA Ctr, 1111 S. Broadway, LA. Sireaming & in-person. Moderated by Alyesha Wise, Poet, Teaching Artist, and Co-Founder of Spoken Literature Art Movement. As long as there have been poems, there have been political poems: verses, intended to be heard aloud, meant to sway opinion and inspire action. Poetry played a crucial role in the Athenian democracy of ancient Greece; throughout American history, poet luminaries such as Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, and Maya Angelou have employed the power of the pen to influence leaders and their fellow citizens. Today’s spoken word bards continue this tradition of stoking political activism by employing their art to expose cracks in America’s racial, economic, and social fabric—and pushing ever-broadening audiences to get out and vote in the face of escalating ballot suppression. Can art succeed where traditional political messaging has failed? Could the future of democracy depend on poets? Join us as spoken word poets take the mic (and the Zócalo stage) at the ASU California Center. The night will begin with Beau Sia performing “We Voting,” and Sekou Andrews and Steve Connell performing “Water Stained Black,” followed by a conversation with the poets about the ways artists engage with politics, and fuel democracy. After the program ends, head to Da Poetry Lounge, 544 N Fairfax Ave, to join its weekly open mic night on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. with a suggested $10 donation for entry.

Film: The Last Black Man in San Francisco, directed by Joe Talbot, 7p. Q&A with Joe Talbot after the screening. Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and the other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of friendship, community, and the true meaning of home. Talbot’s directorial debut is a deep and resonant meditation on the stories we tell ourselves to find our place in the world. Skid Row History Museum and Archive, 250 S. Broadway, LA 90012, sponsored by LA Poverty Department., 213-413-1077


Jan 21 – Sat


ALFRED HITCHCOCK: THE MASTER Series, 7pm BLACKMAIL (1929, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Rialto, UK, 85mns, 35mm, Sound Version); 8:45pm MURDER! (1930, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, Rialto, UK, 101mns, 35mm); 10:45pm NUMBER SEVENTEEN (1932, dir. Alfred Hitchcock, UK, 64mns, 35mm) The Secret Movie Club Theater, 1917 Bay Street, 2nd Floor, LA 90021.  Hitchcock was honing his craft. Though his silent film The Lodger (an amazing riff on Jack the Ripper we’ll be showing in August 2023 with a new original score by the Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble) showed Hitchcock to be a young director of wild talent, it was his 1929 Blackmail that proved that Hitch was going to be a force in the dawning sound area. Like Fritz Lang in M a few years later, Hitchcock immediately went to work finding out what he could do with sound to make it cinematic. In fact, Blackmail is often considered Britain’s first talkie. It tells the story of Alice White who is blackmailed by someone after she kills a man who tries to rape her. Despite the intense subject matter, Hitchcock found a way to be both true to the material AND cinematic with a climactic chase through the British Museum where Hitch uses all his production design skills learned from the German Expressionists in a kind of rough draft for the climactic Mount Rushmore chase in North by Northwest. We follow Blackmail with the rare chance to see two of Hitch’s early 1930’s works. ON 35mm! Murder!, made in 1932 deals with one of Hitchcock’s favorite themes-an innocent person the entire world thinks is guilty of crimes they didn’t commit. Hitch, a lifelong Catholic, often examined the psychology and cinematic potentials of characters who know they are innocent but find themselves clashing with a society that wants to punish them. Murder! does have a number of problematic elements including a subplot with a bi-racial person that does not hold up at all in 2022. So come prepared to watch this movie analytically. We end the night with Number Seventeen (also on 35mm!), a 1932 comedy thriller (that runs a fleet 64 mins) about a group of jewel thieves who have their hideout over a railway. Hitch made the movie under protest because he wanted to film something else but found himself conscripted to adapt this story which he found riddled with cliches.
