Allie, Bess, & Hannah: In concert

We are delighted to present an intimate, coffeehouse-style concert featuring the acoustic music of this talented trio.  A simple love for 3-part harmony is what brought Allie Moss, Bess Rogers, & Hannah Winkler together for their side project of acoustic covers & originals. The women are friends, musicians & songwriters who have spent years performing, writing & recording in the NYC area. In the last 10, they’ve toured the U.S. extensively: Allie & Bess backing Ingrid Michaelson, Bess & Hannah in their band Secret Someones, all three supporting their solo projects. It is from this deep well of time spent with each other that they can blend their voices like sisters, in a way that is sure to enchant listeners.

Black Jacks: African American Seamen in the Age of Sail

Join award-winning author and mariner Dr. Jeffrey Bolster in celebrating Black History Month with a lecture about African American sailors in the 19th century.  The critical historic role played by black mariners in the Port of New York and Brooklyn, although poorly understood, is deeply relevant today. Over 25% of New York’s pre-Civil War maritime workers were black.  Drawing on rich historical sources, and long-forgotten images, Dr. Bolster traces the story to the period after the Civil War.  African Americans actively contributed to the Atlantic maritime culture shared by all seamen in the age of sail, but were often outsiders within it.  Capturing that tension, this stirring presentation examines how common experiences drew black and white sailors together, even as deeply internalized prejudices drove them apart.
