Free Film: Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story
18 January

Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day RESPECT YOURSELF: THE STAX RECORDS STORY (2007) "Funky. Emotional. Raw. Powerful. That was soul music in the Civil Rights Era and Stax Records did it like no other. "Respect Yourself," narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, traces the astonishing history of Stax, from a modest neighborhood hangout to a cultural and political empire. Stax is the story of birth and re-birth and the soul of music which keeps it alive. The southern city of Memphis was a hotbed of racial tension, but that stopped at the doors to Stax Records. "Respect Yourself" provies first-hand accounts of what really happened on the streets and behind studio doors from celebrated musicians such as Isaac Hayes, Booker T. Jones, Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn and Mavis Staples, as well as label president Al Bell, Rev. Jesse Jackson and others. This is the first comprehensive look at Stax Records, the greatest soul label of all time."

Daniel Rodriguez
22 January

Former New York police officer, Daniel Rodriguez has experienced a meteoric rise to frame. He was one of his department's designated anthem singers on September 11, 2001, when fate intervened - he rendered a capella performances of "God Bless America" and the National Anthem that proved far greater than a patriotic gesture. Since then, his ringing, heartfelt and beautiful performances have stirred the hearts of his audiences wherever he has performed. The Concert will also include operatic sopranos Marla Kavanaugh and Marissa Dikkenberg. Individual admission $20; full season membership: $45.
