During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, Malcolm X gained national, and, international prominence. Historians credit him as the spiritual father of the Black Power movement of the late 1960s.

    • James Mann, The Great Rift

      Main Library, Lecture Hall, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      The Great Rift is a sweeping history of the intertwined careers of Dick Cheney and Colin Powell, whose rivalry and conflicting views of U.S. national security color our political debate to this day. In a wide-ranging, deeply researched, and dramatic narrative, James Mann explores each man’s biography and philosophical predispositions to show how and why this deep and permanent rupture occurred. Through dozens of original interviews and surprising revelations from presidential archives, he brings to life the very human story of how this influential friendship turned so sour and how the enmity of these two powerful men colored the way America acts in the world. James Mann is a Washington-based author who has written a series of award-winning books about American foreign policy and about China. He is a former newspaper reporter, foreign correspondent and columnist who wrote for more than twenty years for the Los Angeles Times. He is now an author-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

    • Great Books

      Main Library, Curious George Room, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      February 18th Read: Philip Larkin, selected poems Reading Interests: We read primarily from anthologies that emphasize ancient and modern classics of literature, drama, philosophy, and social thought. In recent years the group has read selections from The Book of Job, Aeschylus, Plato, Montaigne, Donne, William James, Cady Stanton, Baldwin, and Borges. These may run anywhere from 20 to 100 pages. Additional books, chosen by the group, tend to be more contemporary. Those read in the last three years include Adiga's Between the Assassinations, Welty's The Golden Apples, Camus's The Plague, Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, DuBois's The Souls of Black Folk, and Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. A Shakespeare play is read every year. Requirements: There are only two: read the scheduled work and participate in the discussion. These requirements are waived for those attending their first meeting. Preregistration is not required but is encouraged, since the library will provide, in advance and at no charge, a copy of the reading for anyone planning to attend. For more information, contact Drew Griffin (857-235-9829; dgriffin@cambridgema.gov)
