The Door Community Auditorium (DCA) is the place to be on Feb. 8.
At 10 am, the Door County Talks presentation will be “A Meditation on the Long Civil Rights Movement,” by Vince Lowery. He will discuss the period of Reconstruction that followed the abolition of slavery, the civil rights movement of the mid-20th century, and now: a period when many are calling for a “Third Reconstruction” in light of the persistence of Jim Crow-style policies and practices. Lowery will trace the threads connecting these three eras, explore moments of progress and regression, and discuss the road left to travel.
At 7 pm, the Fireside Coffeehouse Concert will feature the ukulele orchestra Forté & The Pianissimos. The group will lead attendees in a singalong and ukulele jam during the first half of its set, then play a full set after a brief intermission. Described as the Midwest’s premier ukulele orchestra, this spirited group is exuberant and fun as its members strum through their collection of original songs and upbeat covers.
The Door County Talks presentation is free, though donations are appreciated. Concert tickets are $17.50 per person, and concert seating is limited. Make advance concert reservations at the DCA box office in Fish Creek, by phone at 920.868.2728 or online at dcauditorium.org.
