St. Mary's College of Maryland invites you to FROM ABSENCE TO PRESENCE, the virtual dedication of The Commemorative to Enslaved Peoples of Southern Maryland

In 2016, St. Mary’s College of Maryland archaeologists unearthed fragments of brick, ceramics, tobacco pipes and bottle glass suggesting locations on the St. Mary’s College campus where slave cabins once stood.

The Commemorative to Enslaved Peoples of Southern Maryland is an immersive art experience that honors the story of resilience, persistence, and creative problem solving that defined the lives of the enslaved individuals that lived in St. Mary’s City between 1750 and 1815. Constructed on the College’s campus, the Commemorative provides visitors with the space to acknowledge and learn from the lives of those who once toiled there, while providing a place for reflection and introspection about the nature of slavery and its connections to modern society.

This virtual dedication will feature a keynote message by nationally-known writer Jelani Cobb. This artistic construction being erected near the Jamie L. Roberts Stadium features commissioned work by artists Norman Lee and Shane Allbritton of RE:Site and poet Quenton Baker.

The Owls in Your Neighborhood

Date(s):

Sunday, November 22, 2020 1:30 pm  - 3:00 pm

Overview:

Join Mark H.X. Glenshaw, aka the “Owl Man,” to learn how you can find these amazing and beautiful animals.

Chances are, there’s an owl or two living in your neighborhood. Great horned owls, top-of-the-food-chain predators, are found in every state except Hawaii and in very diverse habitats, including in close proximity to humans. But because they are nocturnal, have amazing camouflage, and are stealth fliers we don’t actually see them very often. Join Mark H.X. Glenshaw, aka the “Owl Man,” to learn how you can find these amazing and beautiful animals. The Owls in Your Neighborhood is being presented as part of the Smithsonian Institution’s ongoing streaming program. The Zoom presentation is $25 for nonmembers and will be presented on November 22, from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Registration and more information.

Beyond the Known: How Exploration Created the Modern World and Will Take Us to the Stars

Date(s):

Thursday, November 12, 2020 7:00 pm  - 8:00 pm

Overview:

Join SpaceX mission manager and author Andrew Rader for a captivating evening online as he presents on the evolving history of human exploration and mankind’s unending desire to push beyond the boundaries. Viewers are welcome to send Andrew comments or questions, which he will answer following the lecture.

About the lecture: From brilliant young polymath Andrew Rader — an MIT-credentialed scientist, popular podcast host, and SpaceX mission manager — an illuminating chronicle of exploration that spotlights humans’ insatiable desire to continually push into new and uncharted territory, from civilization’s earliest days to current planning for interstellar travel. Divided into four accessible sections, Beyond the Known examines major periods of discovery and rediscovery, from Classical Times, when Phoenicians, Persians and Greeks ventured forth; to The Age of European Exploration, which saw colonies sprout on nearly every continent; to The Era of Scientific Inquiry, when researchers developed brand new tools for mapping and traveling farther; to Our Spacefaring Future, which unveils plans currently underway for settling other planets and, eventually, traveling to the stars. Beyond the Known illuminates how very human it is to emerge from the cave and walk toward an infinitely expanding horizon.
