11:00 AM Talk: Introducing the Hakka Explore intriguing aspects of Chinese history, culture, and art with SDCHM's monthly lecture series presented by Kathleen Dang. Hakkas, 客家, a significant Chinese population with a name that literally means "guest families" is noted as the most diasporic out of the many Chinese populations. The people who are Hakka are connected by a distinct language and a unique cultural history and not by being from a specific region in China. Today, Hakka people find an instant affinity with other Hakka, regardless of where they are from and where they are now living. The language, cultural customs, and extreme attention to ancestry will be explored.

4:00 PM Stage: The Ballad of Emmett Till The now legendary story of Emmett Till is believed by many to be the spark that ignited the modern civil rights movement and remains one of the most pivotal incidents in a monumental era. Till was a 14-year-old Chicago resident who was brutally tortured and murdered for allegedly flirting with a white women while visiting family in Money, Mississippi. This provocative piece of theater — part history, part ghost story — is a jazz integration of past and present, the living and dead, of factual accounts and creative interpolation. Author Ifa Bayeza captures the powerful truths at the heart of this gripping and tragic story, aiming for a soaring work of moving music, potent poetry and rich theatricality.
