    Talk Freedom through a variety of media.

    Join in an open discussion of the First Amendment and the Freedom of Speech through the lens of various types of media. Please read, listen, watch or view at least two of the following resources to provide background for our conversation. During our time together we will share the resources we enjoyed, pose questions and discuss our thoughts. Register to attend the Zoom discussion via the link above.

    List of media* (pick 2):
    - Short Story - "6 Tales of Censorship in the Golden Age of Free Speech" (wired, 2018): https://bit.ly/TalesofCensorship
    - Podcast - "The Most Perfect Album: Episode 1" (More Perfect, 2018): https://bit.ly/MorePerfect1 (listen to 00:00-20:30 at least)
    - Spoken Word - "It Ain't Right" (MC Ragtop, 2020): https://bit.ly/MCRagtop

    - Art Collection: Black Power Collection (National Museum of African American History & Culture): https://bit.ly/BlackPowerNMAAHC

    Ground Rules for Discussion**
    1. Have a “kitchen table” conversation - Everyone participates; no one dominates
    2. You do not need to be an expert - Draw on your experiences, views and beliefs.
    3. Keep an open mind - Listen carefully, and try hard to understand the views of others.
    4. Keep the discussion on track - Stick to the topic and questions; try not to ramble.
    5. It is okay to disagree, but don’t be disagreeable - Respond to others with respect and understanding.
    6. Have fun! *These resources were chosen to stimulate discussion, and represent the view of the author and/or publisher.
    **Ground Rules adapted from the "Community Conversation Workbook" by Libraries Transforming Communities.*zm*

    Jam out to Shireen Amini's Conscious Acoustic Soul with World Grooves.

    We want to hear from you. After viewing this program, please take a minute to complete the survey at https://conta.cc/2WjLWoT

    Shireen Amini is a singer-songwriter based in Bend, Oregon who believes in music as medicine. In addition to her background in ethnomusicology, Afro-Latin percussion, drum circle facilitation, and sound healing, Shireen has been the front-woman for over 7 years of the Latin dance rock band ¡Chiringa! and has spent the last two years returning to her solo singer-songwriter roots, cultivating a rich repertoire of hip, conscious-themed, singalong-style songs often performed in a live looping format. This groove-based world-soul-pop energizes the stories she tells boldly, playfully, and passionately of her personal healing journey and visions for a better world. Her Conscious Acoustic Soul with World Grooves is a musical blend that invites imagining Gloria Estefan meets Nahko & Medicine for the People.

    More information about Shireen Amini can be found at http://shireenaminimusicmedicine.com/ *oo*

    Lipbone Redding shares his voice-strumentalist talents.

    We want to hear from you. After viewing this program, please take a minute to complete the survey at https://conta.cc/2WjLWoT

    Hailing from North Carolina, Lipbone Redding is an award-winning vocalist, guitar player, voice-strumentalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher and traveler. He is best known for his one-man orchestra show; simultaneously playing, singing and making the instrument sounds with his mouth and without the use of a loop pedal.

    Lipbone incorporates American Roots, Blues and Jazz with world influences including Indian, Middle Eastern, African and Latin styles. An uncanny vocal range, a nylon string guitar, a wooden spoon duct-taped to his foot and a lifetime of stories are all he needs to get the party started. His natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience.

    Theaters, festivals, house concerts and private parties make up the bulk of Lipbone’s schedule of 200 performances per year. Lipbone collaborates regularly and performs often as a special guest.
    In addition to a thriving commercial music career, Lipbone has been an active member of the yoga community, since 2003, performing for classes and offering concerts at healing arts centers around the world. In 2017 he began offering his OmPrana workshop, a 90 minute immersive experience focused on breath, music and meditation.
