Veterans' Voices

Join the Bob Parsons Veterans Center, Spotlight UB, and the Maryland Humanities Council for an evening of readings by veterans, some self-written, exploring soldiers’ experiences. From Korean War to Iraq War veterans, both fiction and non-fiction literary works examine the life of our armed forces, including diversity in the military, the experience of war, and the return to civilian life. Audience members will then become participants and will engage in facilitated and meaningful discussion about veterans’ issues. Refreshments provided. FREE. RSVP by phone or at www.ubalt.edu/spotlightUB and you will be automatically entered to win a $25 Barnes & Noble gift certificate.

Mendes Cohen Living History Performance

Mendes Cohen was there. At Ft. McHenry when the bombs were bursting in air; at the Supreme Court when states rights were at stake; in Paris when the people prepared the barricades; at the Vatican for the installation of a new pope; down the Nile to collect artifacts; in Jerusalem as the first American tourist; in Annapolis when arguments raged over fugitive slaves; on the board of the nation’s first railroad. But who was Mendes Cohen? A soldier, a banker, an adventurer, a politician, a philanthropist… a member of the elite, a member of a persecuted minority… a son of England, a son of Germany, an American patriot, a proud Jew? Come meet the most interesting person you have never heard of! The exhibit is open through June 14, 2015. The museum has developed a living (well, almost living) history character, the ghost of Mendes Cohen. Cohen’s ghost will visit some of his previous haunts throughout the year. This performance is free and open to the public.
