Earthrise - The Image that Shared Our World
Film screening and discussion with film director, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee
Thursday, November 29 at 7pm, McCarthy Center Forum

The event is free and open to the public - Registration is required. Use this link to register

The Moon Landing in Context project invites FSU faculty and staff to the only screening in Massachusetts of “Earth - The Image that Shared Our World” on November 29 at 7pm.
Film director, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, will join the post film discussion.

Earthrise tells the story of the image captured of the Earth from space on Apollo 8 in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. The Earthrise photograph had an everlasting impact on the astronauts and humanity, offering a powerful perspective that transcended national, political, and religious boundaries. The photograph helped kickstart the environmental movement and is one of the most iconic and widely reproduced and distributed images in history. The photograph helped humanity to see our Earth as one ecosystem. Offering an opportunity to remember this shift, the image compels us to reflect on the Earth, 50 years later, as a shared home at this unprecedented time in history and to consider how we might build on the legacy of the Earthrise photograph.

1968 and Martin Luther King, Jr.: Race, Class and Disobedience

Tuesday, November 27, 2018
4:30 PM 6:30 PM
McCarthy Center Forum

Speaker: Alex Gourevitch, Brown University

Come hear Alex Gourevitch, Associate Professor of Political Science at Brown University, discuss the radicalism of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s civil disobedience. King was no moderate. Assassinated while supporting a major strike, King is best seen as part of the 1968 revival of a long tradition of mass law-breaking that we can trace backwards through a hundred years of labor radicalism.

This event is part of the Moon Landing in Context series.
