We are back with -- -- talking about all the fun things have to tell you something we should all I remember. This is the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act is it today later this week it's it's all in the week and a wonderful woman. On Dionne. Who I worked with for. Thirty years channel four has put together really an incredible -- memorial celebration of the signing. And it's all in its all in a week. And it is going to have a beautiful. Photo and video exhibit of the civil rights photos posters films at the National Park Service visitors center in Dutch -- in the French Quarter. That is going to be Saturday. 1130 it's gonna be all the way to August so -- in the clearing ought to -- On Wednesday July 2 at noon outside of the Louisiana Supreme Court. There's going to be on bell ringing ceremony that obviously was the moment that was signed. And then also all during the week there's like five -- civil rights panel discussion. And the people on the ice panels are phenomenal. They're going to be shot actually channel four and there's some limited seating but more importantly it's going to be on Cox cable. On Channel 8 and these are a real opportunity. To listen to people who lived the experience. But then on Saturday July 5 at 2 o'clock the music of the movement is a panel and performance with Jackie Harrison -- deja on. Dillard University president doctor Dorothy Smith. -- -- -- -- -- New Orleans jazz historical park at the meant Saturday July 5 at 2 o'clock. Beautiful music. Two to make us remember that fifty years ago things were different and the signing -- that made all the difference. But we also have other things going on in new mr. theaters should now. That mid city theatre opening tonight the human buff but let's take a quick study very fun and -- -- -- It it is a comedy and it's about these incredible women who are trying to meet people on the Internet. And I'm sure that they will call him that is it's city we look at exiting and also -- after a week ago which is way out west we go they have a wonderful theater. And they are also starting this weekend. Is. The complete history of America. Abridged I sensed that it is also common eye candy at the idea read their press release in the you know it just sounds like he's -- it sounds a lot like how wanted to remind him that went down. The complete works of William Shakespeare revising immunities to the entire catalog with the you know and they're trying to -- educate people but also like kind of lame pounding the genre if you will in and the people that are baldness so yeah I think that's great legacy. And have you been out because you are mr. Shakespeare in my life well the Shakespeare festival does continue to -- does a phenomenal job. This is their 21 sees the for season it's going through July 19 now we've missed one performance but we have others and I think that the latest one. On July 7 with a non to Elizabethan stage in practices the festival complete stage okay this is going to be. I'm so sorry I'm blanking on exactly what you just know it's called the fest will partner with complete state. A unique two part artistic experience. The people who do this are gifted. But think about Shakespeare in the summer. Just go to -- Shakespeare festival at Tulane. Get all the information on that they have midsummer -- young and they're doing right now yes and I I -- so their confidence and must been like to maybe 20042005. With Ricky Graham. And now I'm thinking of them -- -- of different all that was a wonderful one you see them ideal start McConnell yeah he was phenomenal -- that -- that I can put it well I guess you know they've both had the umbrellas and -- Japanese -- Parcells -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- has a bunch of people that I know and -- and it's -- definitely anchors people we don't -- that. And that's equipment for the kids to if you wanna get your kids in -- some Shakespeare you can. Not really do better than midsummer -- stream that's really good appropriate only just production that. It's easy for them to follow the action and lots of great character archetypes that everybody -- -- Katrina. That's right so you know when you talk about. We have the cat video -- and took a -- festival and we have Shakespearean festival it is because we are very complete community yeah. And I also have that than you think about two were doing the boomers and beyond next punctured and today we need to talk about that because half of our staff I have been out there.
