Andrew Jackson | Chautauqua Talk led by Larry Bounds @ Hughes Main Library
May 7 all-day

Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Andrew Jackson (the only president with an entire Age named for him) – with Larry Bounds – Chautauqua’s Artistic Director, AP English teacher at Wade Hampton High School and professional magician.

Jackson stormed into politics the champion of the Common Man (not, of course to include women, slaves or Native Americans.) He added vast regions of the South to the US, but it was land brutally wrested from Native Americans. He was the champion of the common white man, who owned over 100 black Americans. He was the founder of the Democratic Party, whose enemies accused him of being an American Napoleon.
As volatile as the Age of Jackson was, his fight for the rights of the average white male pointed the way for those excluded to seek rights of their own. The female, the slave, the free black and the Native American – rose up to demand Jacksonian Democracy be extended to them. The Jacksonian Era was nothing short of another American Revolution. Let’s talk about it.
This event is NOT a costumed performance. Andrew Jackson will be performed by Larry Bounds in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival (June 15 – 24.) Free event and parking.

Jun 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss the revolutionary Malcolm X with Cynthia King, PhD chair of the Department of Communications at Furman University whose current research explores the rhetoric of African American thought.

Malcolm X is still seen as one of the most controversial figures — from one of the most highly charged periods in American history. His assassination and those of JFK, MLK and RFK rocked the nation. There is nothing more powerful and revolutionary than a martyr’s cause. Who was this ghetto hustler turned human rights activist? – Black nationalist? Freedom fighter? Racist? Demagogue? Religious zealot? – Let’s talk about it.
This event is NOT a costumed performance. Malcolm X will be performed by Darrick Johnson in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival (June 14 – 23) Free event and parking.
