“The Big Sounds of Bobby Layne

“Nebraska’s Newton’s Apple Tree
When is an apple tree more than an apple tree? How about when it’s a descendent of an ancient tree that inspired Sir Issac Newton’s law of gravity in the summer of 1666.

“House of Art”
An Omaha couple’s reputation for adventurous, fearless collecting has raised eyebrows in the art world on a national level.

In the last decade, this middle-class couple has quietly amassed what is said to be one of the most important contemporary art collections in the Midwest, with a focus on street art. With nearly 500 works on display, salon style, art fills nearly every possible space in the house.

Responding to the Travel Bans: An Immigration Lawyer's Role in Resisting
On March 30, 2017, the Boston College Center for Human Rights and International Justice hosted this event with Susan Church, immigration lawyer, Demissie & Church. In January, attorney Susan Church, with assistance from the ACLU and other law firms, successfully sued President Trump for his anti-immigrant travel and visa processing ban on Muslim immigrants from seven affected countries, obtaining a temporary restraining order from the Federal District Court in Boston. Then, with help from many volunteer lawyers, she spent weeks at Logan airport helping advocate for travelers who were at risk of being detained. She will talk about these experiences and respond to the latest developments related to both of President Trump's executive orders.
The Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Boston College addresses the increasingly interdisciplinary needs of human rights work. Through multidisciplinary training programs, applied research, and the interaction of scholars with practitioners, the Center aims to nurture a new generation of scholars and practitioners in the United States and abroad who draw upon the strengths of many disciplines, and the wisdom of rigorous ethical training in the attainment of human rights and international justice.
First Monday in October
Walter Matthau and Jill Clayburgh star in this dramatic comedy that centers around the appointment of the first woman to the U.S. Supreme Court. She is aggressive, witty, magnetic-and an arch-conservative. He is wry, opinionated and roundly liberal. One hundred and one men have preceded the new female justice to seats on the bench of the nation's highest court, but now it's eight men and her. All unanimously accept their new colleague-except Matthau, The Great Dissenter. He becomes the source of her fury, her challenges, her antagonism... and finally, her loving admiration. Matthau and Clayburgh are unforgettably and hilariously opposed in this contemporary tale that goes behind the bend with wit, wisdom and great conviction.
