Claude A. Clegg III
Professor of History, Indiana University
"A Town, A Photograph, and a Lynching Close to Home"
Claude Clegg is an award-winning historian whose has published widely in African American
history. His most recent book, Troubled Ground: A Tale of Murder, Lynching, and Reckoning in
the New South, is a brilliant exploration of a deeply personal story. In 1906, Professor Clegg's
hometown of Salisbury, North Carolina, was the site of a triple lynching that became a national
news story. Professor Clegg's talk, based on his book, will weave this local tragedy into a larger
American story about race, violence, and memory.
The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow Professor Clegg's talk and
signed copies of Troubled Ground will be available for purchase.
by Anton Chekhov - April 26, 27 and May 3, 4, 5
Transplanted from their beloved Moscow to a provincial Russian town, three sisters-school teacher Olga, unhappily married Masha, idealistic Irina-yearn for the city of their childhood, where they imagine their lives will be transformed. Three Sisters is Chekhov's masterpiece portrait of a family grappling with the bittersweet realization that while dreams may be unfulfilled there must always be hope.
Saint Louis University Theatre will present a classic of world literature, Three Sisters, by Anton Chekhov, on Fridays and Saturdays, April 26 and 27 and May 3 and 4, all at 8PM, and on Sunday, May 5, at 2PM. Tickets are $9 for faculty and staff of the University, and $7 for all students. Reservations at 977-2998. University Theatre is located in Xavier Hall at 3733 West Pine Mall.
Professor Dixon directs research on plant conservation and landscape restoration at the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority for Kings Park Botanical Garden (Perth, Western Australia). He is well known for his techniques for restoring habitats by mining and for propagating rare and endangered species using such unlikely things as "liquid smoke" and fungi. We expect a lecture to be richly illustrated with vividly colored and oddly shaped wildflowers representing a few of the 12,000 species native to Western Australia. We can supply your e-journal with some nice photos of the flora if you are interested.
