What Is Our Responsibility For Our Government’s Wars? How Should Societies Remember Their Sins?: A Zócalo Event Series, Supported by The Mellon Foundation, 7:00p, in person and streaming online. ASU California Center, 1111 South Broadway, LA 90015. Registration required, free. https://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/responsibility-government-wars/ Moderated by William Sturkey, University of North Carolina Historian and Hattiesburg Author. It’s easy to pin responsibility for war on political leaders or soldiers who commit the worst atrocities, from rape and torture to bombings of civilians and ethnic cleansing. But experts note that, because of technology and other factors, modern conflicts in particular blur the lines among soldiers and civilians, winners and losers. And the injuries that accompany war—moral as well as mortal—reverberate for generations and create far-reaching ripple effects. What responsibility do citizens living in a democracy hold for a war enacted in their name? Does the burden change if they were born or immigrated after a war began? Or if they themselves served in the government, supported the government, or protested the government? Lieutenant General (ret.) Robert E. Schmidle, Jr., Air Force veteran and social worker Noël Lipana, and Farnaz Fassihi, journalist and UN Bureau Chief at the NY Times, visit Zócalo to discuss what it means to bear responsibility for war and its atrocities, and why that matters.

Wonder-Full In The Park: A Tribute To The Music Of Stevie Wonder Ft. Dj’s Spinna, Monalisa, Cognito, 4-10p, Levitt Pavillion, MacArthur Park, Park View between 6th & Wilshire. https://levittlosangeles.org/


Screening: Border Radio, 7p, Part of the UCLA Film & Television Archive’s American Neorealism, Part Two: 1984-2020 screening series. Register at cinema.ucla.edu to attend this in-theater screening. Allison Anders, Dean Lent, and Kurt Voss leapt on to the scene with this stunning early feature, made while they were still graduate students at UCLA. Ostensibly the tale of a punk musician (played by Chris D. of the Flesh Eaters) who hightails it to Ensenada after stealing unpaid money that was owed to him, it’s as much a loving portrait of the L.A. indie music scene at the time. Featuring stunning and gritty 16mm black-and-white cinematography by Lent, it oozes the essence of the 1980s with every sizzling grain. Excellent, often improvised performances by John Doe of X, Luanna Anders, Chris Shearer, and many others contribute to this glowing record of a dynamic moment in Los Angeles history. https://hammer.ucla.edu/programs-events/2022/border-radio




African American Community Healing Day https://communityhealingnet.org/community-healing_days/

Inspired by Dr. Angelou, Founding Chair of CHN’s Board of Advisors, Community Healing Days was one of CHN’s first initiatives. Held on the third weekend of every October, this celebration is designed to put “time for healing” at the top of the global Black community’s agenda, celebrate our resilience, and increase our solidarity. In 2013, Dr. Angelou issued a call encouraging Black people and our allies to Wear Sky Blue during Community Healing Days as a sign of our collective determination to “turn the pain of the blues into the sky blue of unlimited possibilities.” We invite you to join us each year, on the third weekend of October, in answering Dr. Angelou’s call.

AWARE-LA White anti-racist Saturday dialogues, https://www.awarela.org/saturday-dialogue Saturday Dialogue is a gathering for white anti-racists who want to discuss issues of identity, community, privilege and racism in our lives with the intention to strengthen our practice as anti-racists in alliances, relationships, and interactions with people of color.

Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification.

We currently have four monthly Saturday Dialogues, which used to meet in various places throughout LA County, and are temporarily meeting online through Zoom. We also have one monthly “Online Sunday Dialogue” which was originally made available for folks who cannot make it to meetings in LA, or on Saturdays. Sign up here https://actionnetwork.org/forms/aware-la-email-list/ to receive reminder emails about Saturday Dialogues. We strongly encourage you to attend a Saturday Dialogue Orientation before attending a Saturday Dialogue. See below for more info.
