Carpenter, Margot The Underground Railroad in New York City--the Big Meaning Then, the Big Meaning to Us Now History,
Life Skills- Other
We describe places and courageous people of the Underground Railroad in New York City. In the early 1800s, a battle went on. It was of men and women, black and white, who wanted people to be free; and those intent on capturing them, to send them back to their “owners,” likely to be tortured, often to be killed, often sold to plantations far South. Our basis is the education Aesthetic Realism, founded by the great American poet and philosopher Eli Siegel. Aesthetic Realism explains this battle was between two ways of self, our own selves. It’s the battle of respect for the world and people, the desire to be fair to them, see meaning and value in people; and contempt for the world and people. Slavery, we’ll show, arises from contempt; the forces of the UGRR stood for respect. This was what the Civil War was about. Studying this we have the thrilling ability to learn about ourselves through history. Wrote Eli Siegel: "The fight, Shall I see the world and people with contempt or respect? is the fight within every individual right now; it is our constant, inward, personal civil war." Includes a re-enactment of an escape!

Life Skills- Other,
Other
No matter what your age, you know dating is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. Thrills and spills present themselves in sometimes equal, and many times, unequal proportions. Unfortunately, many people decide to give up the ride rather than risk one more deep dive or perilous curve. The good news is that there is a way to enjoy every date, even the ones you consider “disasters.” Everyone hopes their next date will light up their life forever, or, minimally, for a month or two. But even when the wattage is insufficient or when the light shines brightly for only one person, dating is always an opportunity to grow spiritually  and to laugh. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan encourages dating singles to look at each meeting as an adventure, a pathway to learning more about oneself and more about “what makes the world go round.”
