  • Little Lights is once again hosting a Race Literacy 101 class this spring starting March 6th. 

    This is a 11 session study and discussion group  that will meet together weekly to learn and discuss authentically and thoughtfully on the issue of race and racism in an honest yet grace-filled environment.  The class includes education on the history of the ideology of race, some scripture study, and times for discussion and dialogue.  There will be times of personal sharing, interactive activities, and classroom style learning.

    We will be viewing Race: Power of an Illusion video series (PBS) as well as other materials to learn more about the history and the “science” of race to better educate attendees on what this thing called "race" actually is.  The class also seeks to be part of the solution in not only educating people on the issue, but also bring hope to an issue that has caused so much pain, tension, and division.  

    There are usually two guest speakers for the course and there is also an informal dinner after the conclusion of the class.

    There is no cost for the class, but donations to Little Lights are appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact Steve Park at raceliteracy@littlelights.org.

    Here are the dates of the 11 sessions:

    3/6

    3/13

    3/20

    4/10

    4/17

    THE UNAFRAID is a feature length documentary that follows the personal lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending their top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursuing their right to education, and fighting for the rights of their families and communities.

    ​THE UNAFRAID shows us what it means to grow up both American and undocumented in the United States.

She has directed and produced several other documentary films, including award-winners LETTERS FROM THE OTHER SIDE and LOS TRABAJADORES/THE WORKERS, both focused on immigration issues and broadcast nationally on PBS.

  • Join the Contemporary Catholic Writers Reading Group for happy hour and a discussion of 

    Beloved by Toni Morrison

    Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

    Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

    About the Author:

    Toni Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1993. She is the author of several novels, including The Bluest Eye, Beloved (made into a major film), and Love. She has received the National Book Critics Circle Award and a Pulitzer Prize. She is the Robert F. Goheen Professor at Princeton University.

    Q: How do you choose which books to read?

    A: Everyone who participates in a book discussion during a given semester is invited to suggest titles for the next semester's reading list and to vote on the final selections.

    Q: What if I haven't finished the book before the meeting?

    A: Join us anyway! We enjoy serious, in-depth discussions focused on major themes, characters, and the nuts and bolts of literary craft, but we're not sticklers. Regardless of how far you are in the book, you're welcome to participate as much or as little as you're comfortable with. We recommend picking out a favorite passage or two that we can read aloud and use as jumping off points for further discussion.

  • This event is a part of the Global Impact Discussion Series by Founder and Moderator Patricia Schouker, IWP Alumna. This event will follow The Chatham House Rule.

    About the Book: While driving out of the American embassy in Moscow on the evening of February 16, 1978, the chief of the CIA’s Moscow station heard a knock on his car window. A man on the curb handed him an envelope whose contents stunned U.S. intelligence: details of top-secret Soviet research and developments in military technology that were totally unknown to the United States. In the years that followed, the man, Adolf Tolkachev, an engineer in a Soviet military design bureau, used his high-level access to hand over tens of thousands of pages of technical secrets. His revelations allowed America to reshape its weapons systems to defeat Soviet radar on the ground and in the air, giving the United States near total superiority in the skies over Europe. One of the most valuable spies to work for the United States in the four decades of global confrontation with the Soviet Union, Tolkachev took enormous personal risks—but so did the Americans. The CIA had long struggled to recruit and run agents in Moscow, and Tolkachev was a singular breakthrough. Using spy cameras and secret codes as well as face-to-face meetings in parks and on street corners, Tolkachev and his handlers succeeded for years in eluding the feared KGB in its own backyard, until the day came when a shocking betrayal put them all at risk. Drawing on previously secret documents obtained from the CIA and on interviews with participants, David Hoffman has created an unprecedented and poignant portrait of Tolkachev, a man motivated by the depredations of the Soviet state to master the craft of spying against his own country. Stirring, unpredictable, and at times unbearably tense, The Billion Dollar Spy is a brilliant feat of reporting that unfolds like an espionage thriller.

  • This full day of intermediate-level Adobe Premiere workshop is recommended for anyone who already understands the core competencies of the Premiere editing suite, or for anyone who has used Premiere on‐and‐off but wants better mastery of the software.

    The four sections of material to be covered in the workshop are as follows:

    Color Correction: Explore primary color grading, luminance correction, the Reference Monitor, Fast Color Corrector, secondary color correction with the motion trackers in CC, Adjustment Layers, white balance (including indoor vs. outdoor), skin tones, and plug-in effects like Lumetri color engine.

    Audio Post-Production: Topics to be covered include interview surgery (e.g., killing long, awkward pauses), room tone, smooth transitions and the sound of a breath, noise reduction using a noise print in Audition, spectral layers for sound removal, high-pass and low-pass filters for wind, hum, and feedback attenuation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mixing, and creating markers for music cues.

    Multi-Camera Editing: Explore multi-camera editing, including how to deal with multi-camera sequences and nested sequences, picking camera “angles” in real-time, synchronization of multiple sources with external audio, and getting multiple focal lengths from a single camera.

    If time and interest permits, we will also cover:


    Special Effects for Documentary: While documentaries may not use as many special effects as narrative films, there are some that can be beneficial to filmmakers who don’t want to spend money on expensive post-production fixes. This section explores special effects options and plug-ins available within the Premiere program itself including working with frame rates (slow-motion and fast-motion), eliminating flickering, making things disappear in-frame such as trade names, blurring faces, and stabilizing shots.

    Please note: These sections will focus on options available within Premiere itself or its plug-ins rather than in After Effects or other programs.

    LEVEL
    II - This workshop is intended for those who already have basic knowledge of Adobe Premiere, either from prior training or real world experience.
