  • Venue: Jack Morton Auditorium, George Washington University, 805 21 St. NW

    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

    Film: Althea | 2015 | PBS | Dir. Rex Miller | 1hr 23min

    Althea Gibson’s life and achievements transcend sports. A truant from the rough streets of Harlem, Althea emerged as a most unlikely queen of the highly segregated tennis world in the 1950s. Her roots as a sharecropper’s daughter, her family’s migration north to Harlem in the 1930s, mentoring from Sugar Ray Robinson, David Dinkins, and others, and fame that thrust her unwillingly into the glare of the early Civil Rights movement, all bring her story into a much broader realm of the American story.

    Panelists:  

    Leslie Allen, former professional tennis player

    Bob Davis, CEO, Black Tennis Hall of Fame

    Rex Miller, film director

    Moderator:

    Professor Racquel Gates, Department of Media and Culture, College of Staten Island, CUNY

    With unprecedented access to this intensely private mother of 11, Peter Bratt's film, Dolores chronicles Huerta’s life from her childhood in Stockton, California, her early years with the headline-making grape boycott launched in 1965, and her role in the feminist movement of the '70s, to her continued work as a fearless activist

  • Little Lights is once again hosting a Race Literacy 101 class this fall starting September 18th

    This is an 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 Mary Park at raceliteracy@littlelights.org.

    Here are the dates of the 11 sessions:

    Sept 18th

  • "I leave it to my audience: If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?”

    - Abraham Lincoln during the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debates after being accused of "two-faced" politics by Stephen Douglas



    Back by popular demand, and drawing inspiration from Abraham Lincoln's legendary humor and self-deprecation, President Lincoln's Cottage and The DC Improv are again partnering to present Two Faces Comedy, the first comedy series to transform Lincoln's living room into a comedy den. Each show is meant to be inspired by some aspect, silly or serious, of Lincoln's legacy or the history of the cottage.

    This will be a series of three comedy nights: Tuesday, September 24th, Monday, October 21st, & Wednesday, November 13th. Stay tuned for details. All shows begin at 7:30pm.

    TICKETS

    $5 per show

    Sorry, no refunds.

    CASH BAR

    Beer and wine will be available for $5 a drink at each show. 

    TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH SHOW - BEARDED COMEDIANS

    For this show, we're on the silly side: we honor Lincoln's status as the first bearded president by presenting a showcase of bearded comedians.

    Matt Brown is a comedian from Baltimore who started his comedy career at 19. He is a regular at Magooby’s Joke House and the Baltimore Comedy Factory. He has opened for comedians Tom Segura, Tony Woods, Tommy Johnagin, Michael Winslow and more, and in 2019 he won the DC Improv’s Comedy Kumite stand-up tournament.

    Since getting his comedy start in Washington, DC, Andy Kline has branched out to comedy clubs across the country, in addition to regular appearances on 98 Rock and SiriusXM Radio. Andy can also be heard weekly on the acclaimed comedy podcast, Three Guys On - www.threeguyson.com, and has been seen on PBS' The Truth About Money. With a mix of strong opinions, insight, and common sense, Andy manages to be more than just funny. He manages to be memorable.

    Martin Amini is a stand-up comic born and raised in Silver Spring. Martin recently made Thrillist's "Best Undiscovered Stand Up Comedian list" and has opened for headliners such as Trevor Noah, Jerrod Carmichael, and Hasan Minaj. Martin's stand-up material touches on what it's like growing up mixed in America coming from an Iranian and Bolivian background. You can watch Martin on the new stand up show "Laff Tracks" on TruTV and “Unprotected Sets" premiering on Epix October 2018 produced by Wanda Sykes. He is also the producer of The Overachievers Comedy Show, a regular series at the DC Improv and L.A.'s Comedy Store.


    Umar Khan is a Baltimore comedian who has been performing regularly for the past 5 years. He’s become a regular at clubs, colleges, independent shows, and local theaters in the Baltimore and DC areas. He has performed at the Baltimore Comedy Factory, Magooby's Joke House, Creative Alliance Theater in Baltimore, and the DC Improv. Umar has had the opportunity to open up for great comedians like Todd Barry and Hari Kondabolu.

    MONDAY, OCTOBER 21ST SHOW - PUN COMPETITION

    For the October show, we're indulging Lincoln's love of wordplay by bringing a pun competition to the Cottage.

    Orpheus C. Kerr -- the punny pseudonym (office-seeker) of Robert H. Newell -- was one of Lincoln's favorite humorists. He even read the pun-filled "Orpheus C. Kerr Papers" while relaxing at the cottage. "Anyone who has not read them," Lincoln once said, "is a heathen." So we think Abe would approve of Pun DMV! This event has become a DC favorite, featuring one event with prepared routines, and an on-the-spot tournament where anyone in attendance can sign up. The winners of either event get a prize! If you're interested in competing, e-mail chris@dcimprov.com for more information.

    More Information about Pun DMV Events: 

    The Lincoln Invitational: Contestants prepare a short (2-3 minute) pun routine, where all the puns have the same theme. (Meaning, they're all puns on bird names, or beverages, or cities, or whatever. The theme is up to you.) You can do a monologue, sing a song, act out a sketch or use props. You can do it from memory or read off notes if you like. After everyone performs, the event organizers will select a few finalists, and the audience will cheer to decide the winner of the big prize. All contestants for this event will be confirmed in advance -- please e-mail chris@dcimprov.com if you are interested in performing.

    The Tournament: An on-the-spot punning tournament featuring up to 16 people. At the start of each match, contestants are given a theme. They then take turns making up puns on the spot. People are eliminated when they're stumped. The last person standing moves on to the next round -- or if it's the finals, eternal glory and a big prize. Anyone in attendance can compete, and you sign up on-site when you arrive at the show.

  • 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.
