Welcoming our Heroes Home: Bridging the Divide

The Frazier History Museum and Kentucky Opera present:
Welcoming Our Heroes Home: Bridging the Divide

An evening of conversation, camaraderie, and live performances exploring the journeys of local combat veterans, their families, and a community that welcomes them home. This discussion is inspired by Kentucky Opera’s upcoming performances of Glory Denied, based on the story of Colonel James Thompson, America’s longest held surviving prisoner of war. Upon returning home from Vietnam 9 years after his capture, Thompson was greeted only by his wife, Alyce.  Neglected by his country, forgotten by his young children, Glory Denied is the achingly beautiful story of Jim and Alyce’s painful reunion in the aftermath of war.

Join us for an evening of discussion with local veterans sharing their personal experiences.

Free admission and pizza courtesy of Papa John’s Veteran Employee Resource Group

Moved By Music: Violins of Hope

Violins of Hope is a testament to the power of music during the most horrific of circumstances, the Holocaust. The violins provided a voice of hope. Music is that universal language of expression that can give hope, offer a voice, bring joy, perhaps solace….music is deeply personal to everyone. Join us on October 20th to express why you are “Moved by Music.” The Louisville Orchestra’s Teddy Abrams will open the event with a few words, then play the instrument of his choice. We ask you to sign up to do the same, an open mic will be available to say why you are moved by music, then play an instrument, sing a song, whatever moves you. It can be solo or a group, but set up needs to be easy to accommodate a quick turnaround for the next musicians.

LET'S TALK | BRIDGING THE DIVIDE - Hate Crimes and Their Resurgence

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2019
DOORS OPEN 5 PM | ACCESS TO FIRST FLOOR EXHIBITS 5-6 PM | PANEL DISCUSSION 6-7 PM

With Special Invited Guests: Kellie Watson, Louisville’s Chief Equity Officer, Edgardo Mansilla from Americana Community Center, and Cathy Berkey from The Big Table

From the recent shooting in El Paso that appears to have targeted the Hispanic community, to the Christchurch massacre of Muslims, the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, and the shooting of two African Americans at a local grocery store, hate crimes are attacks of violence motivated by prejudice on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, or other grounds. As the Frazier History Museum prepares for the Violins of Hope, Strings of the Holocaust exhibition October 17 to 26, we look at hate crimes through history, what they look like today, and a call to action.

This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Violins of Hope Louisville.
