Harriet Tubman - I Can’t Die But Once

 

Harriet Tubman was a woman of unique qualities and abilities even though she was illiterate.  She maintained an unblemished record of vigilance, and  left a legacy of sacrifice and struggle.  I Can’t Die But Once weaves a tale of truth, pain, courage, and determination that takes the audience into her life – at first enslaved – her eventual escape – solicited by the United States Government for her unique talents – evading capture behind enemy lines.. They enlisted her as a scout and spy for the Union cause and she battled courageously behind enemy lines during the Civil War. Her story is inspirational.

            Please join us at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. in Milford, on March 26 at 2pm for a very special presentation of Harriet Tubman’s life, presented by the talented and professional Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti. 

            Gwendolyn Quezaire-Presutti’s portrayal of historical women introduces untapped history, drawing on a wide array of primary historical resources. For the past 20 years Gwendolyn, has engaged audiences with performances giving voice to real life accounts, struggles, self-determination and triumphs of women she portrays. Each performance is infused with her unique finger print giving an integral portrait of a historical event or person.

Discover the Hidden Uses of Your Cellphone

 

Ever wonder if your phone has any hidden abilities that might be useful? Sure, we use our phones to stay connected and to play games, but they’re also extremely powerful computers with immense sensing capabilities thanks to the very small, very cheap sensor technology at our disposal today. Much like the fabled tricorder from Star Trek, our phones are capable of some astounding sensing, computing, and recording tasks, like returning the solution to a calculus equation, or navigating a telephone call tree until a human gets on the line. Or how about real time language translation? That's straight out of Trek too, they called it the universal translator. From analyzing the ambient audio frequency spectrum to real time earthquake alerts and more, the phones in our pockets are much more powerful than most people realize. Join the discussion to discover what hidden powers lurk inside your smart phone.

            We’ll be meeting on February 28 at 11am at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. in Milford.  All are welcome.
