A KIND SHOT
By Terri Mateer
A one-woman show about Terri Mateer, a pro basketball star in France, raised by a single, hippie mom, and how an African American surrogate father stepped in and taught her to play basketball. The play explores her life playing ball, modeling, stripping, designing Michael Jordan’s headboard, and taking lots of shots at life. It addresses sexual harassment and what anyone can do about it.

Contested Memory: Global Monuments, Memorials, and the Making of History
This panel will explore how communities use memorials to create identity, demarcate belonging, perform citizenship, and produce social power. Panelists will explore these issues across a wide range of geographical regions and historical periods, including Ancient Rome, Buddhist India, postwar Germany, the Jim Crow South, and contemporary New Paltz. These various contexts will shed valuable perspectives for consideration of naming and memorial practices here on our campus and elsewhere.

LITTLE WHITE LIE
A film by Lacey Shwartz
Q&A With Lacey Schwartz following the film
What defines our identity, our family of origin or the family that raises us? How do we come to terms with the sins and mistakes of our parents? Lacey Schwartz discovers that answering those questions means understanding her parents’ own stories as well as her own. She pieces together her family history and the story of her dual identity using home videos, archival footage, interviews, and episodes from her own life. Little White Lie is a personal documentary about the legacy of family secrets, denial, and the power of telling the truth.
