Join us to watch "Beale Street" at Kino Lumière. We will meet first at 6:30 pm inside at Café Kollecktiv Kabale, to discuss the present political situation (e.g. the Mueller Report, Democratic presidential candidates, etc.), the 2019 AGM meeting in Heidelberg, exchange ideas for future member events, and just plain socialize before the movie begins.
At 7:30 is the film “Beale Street” (original title: If Beale Street Could Talk), was written and directed by Barry Jenkins and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2018. It was chosen as one of the top 10 films by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute. It is based on the novel by James Baldwin with the same title.
The film takes place during the turbulent 1970’s in New York City. It tells the tale of love and racism, and especially the injustices of the American judicial system -still very prevalent in America’s society today.
The idea for this event originates from a question asked by a DA member at the 2019 AGM meeting in Heidelberg: “How many people remember the Kent State University shootings that occurred on May 4, 1970?” Many hands were raised, compared to the question that followed: “How many people remember the Orangeburg massacre, which took place on February 8, 1968?”...
Price 7 - 8 Euros. More info here: Kino Lumiere and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_Beale_Street_Could_Talk_(film)
It's not required, but consider RSVPing here so we have a rough idea of how many people to expect.

This 10-day event spans from Lorch am Rhein to Flörsheim am Main and marks the opening of the wine tourism season in the Rheingau, one of Germany’s 13 renowned wine regions. This is a great opportunity to get to know the area by enjoying all things local - wine, the Rhine River Riesling soup, Spundekas, Handkäse mit Musik.
We will meet at 10:15am in Wiesbaden to take the train (group tickets available) to the Rheingau where the day of wine tastings, hiking and delight will begin. If you are interested in participating, please fill out this poll. I will send out an itinerary closer to the date based on the data collected from the aforementioned poll.

They have Exploratory Committees and Campaign Committees, they‘re raising money and wooing activists, they’re visiting diners and schools and churches and union halls, and their number is ... hard to keep track of. They are the growing list of Democratic candidates vying to put Donald Trump to bed in 2020.
Ahead of the first primary debates June 26 & 27, Solidarity Sundays goes past the Vanity Fair profiles and soft-focus videos to break down what you need to know: where do they stand on key issues? What do they offer in terms of youth vs experience? Who appeals to middle state voters vs coastal voters? We‘re not advocating for any one candidate: we aim to equip you to find yours and be able to articulate why. Join the discussion April 28th and practice democracy with coffee, cookies, and civics.
