Women's Liberation, the Unfinished Struggle: Documenting the History and Discussing the Future
Join photojournalist Ellen Shub, filmmakers working on the documentary Left on Pearl: Women Take Over 888 Memorial Drive, and other feminists for a discussion of how to document the women's movement through photos, films, and stories. What images and stories need to be preserved and shared? How are they brought to life and made meaningful for current and future generations? This event is also an opening reception for Ellen Shub's month-long photo exhibit.
More About Connolly Branch Library
The Connolly Branch of the Boston Public Library boasts a collection of more than 40,000 items, with nearly half of them in Spanish.
"Spanish is what we're known for," says Jane Bickford, the branch librarian.
The library is housed in a 1932 building that has been restored to near original condition. The 20-plus foot plaster ceiling of the main room is decorated with rosettes and geometric patterns.
In addition to the collections and resources, the branch has a 150-person lecture hall. There is a stage and sound system. Non-profit organizations are welcome to use the space by arrangement with the librarian. For-profit groups may rent the hall after hours.
