All Day LGBTQ History Month

Theme: Arts + Community + Healing

All Day Shemini Atzeret

Jewish holyday: Shemini Atzeret (the Eighth Day of Assembly) immediately follows the harvest festival of Sukkot, and marks the beginning of the rainy season. Numbers 29:35 instructs: "On the eighth day you should hold a solemn gathering; you shall not work at your occupation."[i] In Israel, Shemini Atzeret is one day, but in the Diaspora it is often two days; Simchat Torah is either celebrated on the same day, or on the second day.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM The Pleasures of Being Out of Step

The Pleasures of Being Out of Step is a documentary film about the life of seminal jazz critic and Boston native, Nat Hentoff whose career tracks the greatest cultural and political movements of the last 65 years.

Hentoff is a pioneer who raised jazz as an art form and was present at the creation of ‘alternative’ journalism in this country. The film wraps the themes of liberty and identity around a historical narrative that stretches from the Great Depression to the Patriot Act. Brought to life by actor Andre Braugher, the narration doesn’t tell the story – it is the story, consisting entirely of writings by Hentoff and some of his subjects. With a potent mix of interviews, archival footage, photographs and music, the film employs a complex non-linear structure to engage the audience in a life of independent ideas and the creation of an enduring voice.

The Pleasures of Being Out of Step
