Eureka Chapter – 615 H St.  Eureka, CA

Long-time jazz aficionado and past interviewer/reviewer for the New Books Network New Books in Jazz segment Doc Stull will present an entertaining  and informative look (with audio, television and movie clips) at the important contribution of early Italian immigrants to jazz as well as later Italian-American entertainers and innovators such as Jimmy Durante, Nick LaRocca, Leon Ropollo, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Louis Prima, Louis Bellson , Vince Guaraldi and many others.   Though most American and international audiences may be familiar with epic popular singers such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, both of whom had strong crossover stylistic jazz sensibilities, many are unfamiliar with the fascinating Italian-American connections to jazz.

 Sport in the Americas and Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics:  

The confluence of sport and politics on the world stage in the  XIX Summer Olympic Games in Mexico City, 1968

Friday, September 8,  2017 at 1:00  PM

Join Danielle and Doc – Next year will be the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic images in the history of sport and politics – the photograph of United States sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos and their black-gloved raised fists on the medal stand during the 1968 Summer Olympic Games in Mexico City in support of the Olympic Project for Human Rights and in protest of the injustices and poverty in the American black community .  Mexico was the first Latin American and Spanish-speaking country to host the Olympics, and the government was eager to use the Mexico City games as a way projecting the image of a modern and progressive country.  But a week before the games, student protests about economic and political injustice in Mexico took a violent turn in what is now known and commemorated as the Tlatlelolco massacre where a still undetermined number of students (some estimates are from 300-400) were killed by government troops and more than a thousand arrested.  Today we’ll look back at those turbulent times that are strangely similar to recent political events in both Mexico and the United States.
200 meter dash victory stand:  gold-medalist, USA, Tommie Smith (center), bronze medalist, USA, John Carlos (right),  silver-medalist, Australia, Peter Norman (left).   Norman also supported Smith and Carlos and the Olympic Project for Human Rights but was ostracized for his political stance upon his return to Australia, much like Smith and Carlos were in the USA.  Smith and Carlos carried Norman’s coffin at his funeral in 2006.

Californian Jack London (1876 -1916) was the most popular American author of his day – adventurer, romantic, realist, war correspondent, boxing writer, revolutionary, sportsman, socialist, public intellectual, dreamer…combative, contrary, contradictory, charismatic, and courageous – Jack London’s legacy lives here amidst the mystical magic of Valley of the Moon.

Perhaps no other American author encompassed more diverse subject areas and amassed more output within a short life-span of only 4o years – 50 novels, more than 200 short stories, plus a well-spring of non-fiction and photojournalism, London was a larger-than-life man of great passion, vision, and contradiction.

Join Doc and experience one of  Jack’s most riveting and unforgettable short stories.

 Sport in the Americas and Caribbean and their connection to popular culture and politics:  

 The USA- Venezuelan Major League Baseball connection.

Friday, August 4,  2017 at 1:00  PM   

The heartbreaking political, economic and human crisis in Venezuela has been in the news of late with potentially far-reaching repercussions not only within the country itself but also visavi its Latin American neighbors as well.  Unless you were a die-hard baseball fan, however,  you probably didn’t know that Venezuela produces the second most Latino players in Major League Baseball.

Venezuelan players are keenly aware of the tragedy going on in their native country.  And, after the rigors and unseen struggles of making it to the big leagues, their wealth and celebrity are double edged swords as they watch their families and countrymen imperiled.

There are also more unsettling connections between US – Venezuelan sport and politics and Major League Baseball not often in the public eye.  It’s a complex topic,  but we’ll explore a few of these themes when Doc talks to Danielle this Friday on the Humboldt Magazine.
