Colin Kaepernick is an American civil rights activist and a former quarterback. He played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers in the National Football League (NFL). In 2016, he knelt during the national anthem at the start of NFL games in protest of police brutality and racial inequality in the United States. Some people wrongly assumed he was showing disrespect for America and its symbols of patriotism by expressing his First Amendment Rights. The backlash was verbally violent, financially devastating, and life-changing.
Academy Award winning documentarian Ava DuVernay has created a mini-series for Netflix to show highlights and lowlights from Colin's life in the hopes that all Americans could see "the other side" from someone who has lived in a White world as a Black man.
We will focus on this series as a our tribute to slain Civil Rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Please join us.
We are surrounded by music from the time we're born. Songs and sounds help anchor our memories, but how did the notation of music happen? Join GAAMC and Sherri Rase as we take a brief tour of music notation from ancient times to the present. We will answer the burning questions like what is music notation and how did it begin? What was the purpose of it? Do all cultures notate music the same way? How long did it take to develop notation? And most important, what music do you serve with fish?These and other questions are all part of the song. Join us for a little (Monday) night music.
