Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things  
with
Peg Fargo

Have you ever heard of Margaret Knight, Harriet Dame, Maude Hood or Nellie Brown? These women of NH dared to challenge the norms expected of women at the time. Margaret Knight invented objects and held 87 patents, the first of which she developed when she was 12. Harriet Dame was a nurse in the Civil War and gave comfort at both the Battle of Bull Run and Gettysburg. Maude Hood in 1893 was the first female Century Rider and Nellie Brown, a biracial woman from Dover, was called the "Queen of Song" in 1924. And the list goes on and on, women of New Hampshire's stalwart nature carving their own ways to make lives better for themselves, their families and their communities.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PMAsk a Muslim Anything: A Conversation with Robert Azzi



Description:  
Robert Azzi is an Arab-American Muslim who grew up in Manchester, NH. After college, he embarked on a career as a photojournalist, traveling extensively throughout the Middle East and beyond photographing wars and conflicts wherever they occurred. Recent efforts to ban immigrants from Muslim countries from entering the United States compelled Azzi to begin a personal effort to share his faith with people interested in knowing more about Islam and the Muslim faith. Azzi speaks about his life, what it’s like to be Muslim in America. He speaks not as a scholar or academic but as a neighbor, fellow citizen, and person of faith. Azzi has been a Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard University, a member of the Leadership Council of the Harvard Divinity School, an advisor to Tufts University’s Fletcher School committee on Islam and South-West Asia, and is a board member of ACLU-NH.

Description:  
The Suffrage Movement 
The campaign for women’s right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention to ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Who were the key players? What were the main issues and obstacles? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment?             Using historic photos in a powerpoint presentation, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey.  Liz is president of the League of Women Voters NH, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.

Description:  
Vikings:
300 Years of Terrorism and Exploration

with David Hess

Part 1

Looters, raiders, plunders, marauders, bloodthirsty barbarians, murderers, Sea Wolves are but a few of the epithets used by the medieval Christian church to describe the Vikings. All justified. These heathen Norsemen swept out of the mists of Scandinavia to terrorize all of Europe for almost 300 years, raiding as far south as the Mediterranean. Just as fearless as explorers, they ventured forth in their innovative long ships to places then unknown to Western Europeans, sailing as far west as Newfoundland and Labrador, and as far east and south as the Black Sea. We will be studying their warrior exploits, their guerrilla hit-and-run tactics, their explorations and settlement of such far off places as Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland, their engineering and nautical prowess, and their lasting legacies in such diverse places as England, Normandy and Russia.

10:30 AM - 12:00 PMThe Hello Girls



Description:  
In 1917, General Pershing, Commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in WWI, made a request for bilingual women telephone operators to oversee telephone communications in France. It was apparent that inexperienced doughboys could not efficiently complete this vital task. In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France. These brave women, also known as the ‘Hello Girls’, took an army oath, wore army regulation uniforms, and were expected to follow army protocols. They risked their lives near the front lines. They proved to be a success and were highly regarded by the men with whom they served.   However, upon their return to the United States, they were informed that they were not Veterans.
 
We will have a special screening of ‘The Hello Girls’ a documentary based on the book ‘The Hello Girls’ by Elizabeth Cobbs. The documentary spans a 60-year history of the ‘Hello Girls” in their fight for the long overdue recognition as Veterans. Carolyn Timbie, granddaughter of Grace Banker who was Chief Operator of the First unit of 33 Hello Girls, does a brief introduction and following the film, shares items from her grandmother’s collection and provides time for Q & A.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PMOLLI Class Part 1



Description:  
Shakespeare:
The Man and His Work
with Jessie Chapman

Part 1 (Elizabethan)

This two-part class is about the man William Shakespeare, how little we know about him--and what clues in Shakespeare's text help to paint a clearer picture of the world's most produced playwright. Both sessions will actively explore Shakespeare through examining and performing excerpts from his works. Part One will cover Shakespeare under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1564-1602). We will dive into relevant context in Elizabethan England, Shakespeare's biography, the known and unknown, and his early works and influences.

with Jessie Chapman

Part 2 (Jacobean)

Part Two will cover Shakespeare in Jacobean England (1603-1616). In this session we will examine the significance the passing of Queen Elizabeth I and the ascension of James I to the throne of England had on Shakespeare's life and work. The class will explore the growth of Shakespeare's later works, learn the story behind the first folio, why we still study Shakespeare today and dip our toes into the conspiracy theories that abound in the authorship question of was Shakespeare really Shakespeare.

Description:  
Granuaile (Grace O'Malley):
Ireland's Pirate Queen 
 
With Daniel Crean

Why are a number of Irish pubs in North America named "Grace O'Malley's"? Here is the way the pub in Norfolk, Virginia answers that question: Grace O'Malley (Irish: Gráinne Ní Mháille) was Queen of Umaill, chieftain of the Ó Máille clan, rebel, seafarer, and a fearless leader of Ireland. Grace's extraordinary life began in 1530, born to the seafaring O'Malley clan that controlled the southwest of County Mayo from their castle on Clare Island. Proud and feisty from the get-go, Grace cut off all her hair and dressed in boys' clothes to sneak aboard her father's ship and prove to her parents that she could live a sailor's life. Her family then nicknamed her Grainne Mhaol, which meant Grainne the Bald. This was later shortened and anglicised to Granuaile, the Irish name by which this notorious legend is best known today. Ambitious and fiercely independent, Grace excelled in the traditional seafaring trade of her family, with some piracy and plundering on the side. When the English captured her son and brother in 1593, Grace boldly set sail for England to confront Queen Elizabeth I herself. Upon meeting the Queen, Grace defiantly refused to bow, and somehow our daring Irish rebel convinced the bemused Queen to free her family and restore her lands. By the time of her death at the age of 70, Grace was widely known for her sea adventures and fierce leadership, well earning her the title of Pirate Queen and Sea Queen of Connacht. This class includes pictures from the County Mayo environs where she spent her life.

"Three Stooges Take on

lecture and video presentation.
“Even before Charlie Chaplin and The Great Dictator, the Three Stooges lampooned Hitler and all the Axis powers in ‘You Nazty Spy’ and other films. They were the first comedy act to directly make fun of Hitler and the Axis powers. The Three Stooges were immersed in the war effort. Comedy was crucial to galvanizing public opinion toward the war...The Three Stooges were central to unifying Americans as the war became inevitable.”

Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things  
with
Peg Fargo

Have you ever heard of Margaret Knight, Harriet Dame, Maude Hood or Nellie Brown? These women of NH dared to challenge the norms expected of women at the time. Margaret Knight invented objects and held 87 patents, the first of which she developed when she was 12. Harriet Dame was a nurse in the Civil War and gave comfort at both the Battle of Bull Run and Gettysburg. Maude Hood in 1893 was the first female Century Rider and Nellie Brown, a biracial woman from Dover, was called the "Queen of Song" in 1924. And the list goes on and on, women of New Hampshire's stalwart nature carving their own ways to make lives better for themselves, their families and their communities.

Ask a Muslim Anything: A Conversation with Robert Azzi
Robert Azzi is an Arab-American Muslim who grew up in Manchester, NH. After college, he embarked on a career as a photojournalist, traveling extensively throughout the Middle East and beyond photographing wars and conflicts wherever they occurred. Recent efforts to ban immigrants from Muslim countries from entering the United States compelled Azzi to begin a personal effort to share his faith with people interested in knowing more about Islam and the Muslim faith. Azzi speaks about his life, what it’s like to be Muslim in America. He speaks not as a scholar or academic but as a neighbor, fellow citizen, and person of faith. Azzi has been a Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard University, a member of the Leadership Council of the Harvard Divinity School, an advisor to Tufts University’s Fletcher School committee on Islam and South-West Asia, and is a board member of ACLU-NH.

The Suffrage Movement 
The campaign for women’s right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention to ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Who were the key players? What were the main issues and obstacles? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment?             Using historic photos in a powerpoint presentation, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey.  Liz is president of the League of Women Voters NH, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.

OLLI Class Part 1
Vikings:
300 Years of Terrorism and Exploration

with David Hess

Part 1

Looters, raiders, plunders, marauders, bloodthirsty barbarians, murderers, Sea Wolves are but a few of the epithets used by the medieval Christian church to describe the Vikings. All justified. These heathen Norsemen swept out of the mists of Scandinavia to terrorize all of Europe for almost 300 years, raiding as far south as the Mediterranean. Just as fearless as explorers, they ventured forth in their innovative long ships to places then unknown to Western Europeans, sailing as far west as Newfoundland and Labrador, and as far east and south as the Black Sea. We will be studying their warrior exploits, their guerrilla hit-and-run tactics, their explorations and settlement of such far off places as Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland, their engineering and nautical prowess, and their lasting legacies in such diverse places as England, Normandy and Russia.

The Hello Girls
In 1917, General Pershing, Commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in WWI, made a request for bilingual women telephone operators to oversee telephone communications in France. It was apparent that inexperienced doughboys could not efficiently complete this vital task. In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France. These brave women, also known as the ‘Hello Girls’, took an army oath, wore army regulation uniforms, and were expected to follow army protocols. They risked their lives near the front lines. They proved to be a success and were highly regarded by the men with whom they served.   However, upon their return to the United States, they were informed that they were not Veterans.
 
We will have a special screening of ‘The Hello Girls’ a documentary based on the book ‘The Hello Girls’ by Elizabeth Cobbs. The documentary spans a 60-year history of the ‘Hello Girls” in their fight for the long overdue recognition as Veterans. Carolyn Timbie, granddaughter of Grace Banker who was Chief Operator of the First unit of 33 Hello Girls, does a brief introduction and following the film, shares items from her grandmother’s collection and provides time for Q & A.

OLLI Class Part 1
Shakespeare:
The Man and His Work
with Jessie Chapman

Part 1 (Elizabethan)

This two-part class is about the man William Shakespeare, how little we know about him--and what clues in Shakespeare's text help to paint a clearer picture of the world's most produced playwright. Both sessions will actively explore Shakespeare through examining and performing excerpts from his works. Part One will cover Shakespeare under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1564-1602). We will dive into relevant context in Elizabethan England, Shakespeare's biography, the known and unknown, and his early works and influences.

Part Two will cover Shakespeare in Jacobean England (1603-1616). In this session we will examine the significance the passing of Queen Elizabeth I and the ascension of James I to the throne of England had on Shakespeare's life and work. The class will explore the growth of Shakespeare's later works, learn the story behind the first folio, why we still study Shakespeare today and dip our toes into the conspiracy theories that abound in the authorship question of was Shakespeare really Shakespeare.

Granuaile (Grace O'Malley):
Ireland's Pirate Queen 
 
With Daniel Crean

Why are a number of Irish pubs in North America named "Grace O'Malley's"? Here is the way the pub in Norfolk, Virginia answers that question: Grace O'Malley (Irish: Gráinne Ní Mháille) was Queen of Umaill, chieftain of the Ó Máille clan, rebel, seafarer, and a fearless leader of Ireland. Grace's extraordinary life began in 1530, born to the seafaring O'Malley clan that controlled the southwest of County Mayo from their castle on Clare Island. Proud and feisty from the get-go, Grace cut off all her hair and dressed in boys' clothes to sneak aboard her father's ship and prove to her parents that she could live a sailor's life. Her family then nicknamed her Grainne Mhaol, which meant Grainne the Bald. This was later shortened and anglicised to Granuaile, the Irish name by which this notorious legend is best known today. Ambitious and fiercely independent, Grace excelled in the traditional seafaring trade of her family, with some piracy and plundering on the side. When the English captured her son and brother in 1593, Grace boldly set sail for England to confront Queen Elizabeth I herself. Upon meeting the Queen, Grace defiantly refused to bow, and somehow our daring Irish rebel convinced the bemused Queen to free her family and restore her lands. By the time of her death at the age of 70, Grace was widely known for her sea adventures and fierce leadership, well earning her the title of Pirate Queen and Sea Queen of Connacht. This class includes pictures from the County Mayo environs where she spent her life.

lecture and video presentation.
“Even before Charlie Chaplin and The Great Dictator, the Three Stooges lampooned Hitler and all the Axis powers in ‘You Nazty Spy’ and other films. They were the first comedy act to directly make fun of Hitler and the Axis powers. The Three Stooges were immersed in the war effort. Comedy was crucial to galvanizing public opinion toward the war...The Three Stooges were central to unifying Americans as the war became inevitable.”
