Free Bohm screenings of “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” Sept. 19 & 20

Join us at Albion’s Historic Bohm Theatre for a free screening of Everything Everywhere All at Once as part of the 2023 Common Reading Experience.

Screening 1
Tuesday, September 19
6:30 – 9pm with a 7pm start time

Screening 2
Wednesday, September 20
6:30 – 9pm with a 7pm start time

The concession stand will be open for purchases during these free public screenings.

The 2023 Common Reading Experience selection is a curated collection of easily digestible works centered on the theme of belonging, identity and self discovery.  Everything Everywhere All At Once beautifully and chaotically wrestles with themes of immigration, mental health, parent-child dynamics, generational trauma, and the impulse many of us have to question what our lives might look like if we had made different choices. This film is notable for casting a middle-aged Asian American woman in the role of superhero, and is the first Best Picture Oscar winning film depicting the lives of Asian Americans.

Labor Day reflection: A requiem of thanksgiving – Colored National Labor Union

As the summer winds down, Labor Day brings appreciation for the sacrifices for an equitable America. After Emancipation, newly freed Black people sought economic independence and parity with their white American contemporaries. Emerging from this pursuit was the creation of Black organized labor. One of these, which approached labor rights from intersectional identities of the people who did the labor was the mostly Black Washers Woman. Not apprised of the rights of white women of the era, Black women forged together to establish one of the first women’s labor unions in America. For more info see Tera W. Hunter’s book “To ’Joy My Freedom: Southern Black Women’s Lives and Labors after the Civil War”.  In 1869, the Colored National Labor Union was created due to discrimination Black people faced in mostly white, larger national labor unions. Its expansion captured the attention of civil rights leaders of the era prompting Frederick Douglass to become its second president in 1872.
