6:00 PM Film: Middle of Nowhere When her husband is sentenced to eight years in prison, Ruby (Emayatzy Corinealdi) drops out of medical school in order to focus on her husband's well-being while he's incarcerated - leading her on a journey of self-discovery in the process, She struggles with internal forces as tensions build and life rears its ugly head at her. As she meets new people, Ruby must decide what she truly wants and what is best for her.

In a 1991 interview, director Spike Lee said, "I don't think my films are going to get rid of racism or prejudice. I think the best thing my films can do is provoke discussion." To celebrate Black History Month, the Humanities Center presents a series of weekly film screenings. Introduced by faculty members from various departments, the films span decades, beginning in the 1970s and ending with contemporary cinema. Following each screening is a brief discussion of the films, the issues that they raise and their lasting significance.

7:00 PM Lecture on Leonardo da Vinci Athenaeum Music & Arts Library welcomes back art historian Linda Blair with a new lecture series, Leonardo. For many years now, Blair has been one of the Athenaeum's most popular speakers.

The ancient Greeks believed that if one excelled beyond all others, he must have been personally chosen by the gods. If one ran the fastest footrace, sculpted the finest statue, wrote the winning drama, it was because the gods entered the athlete's body, whispered in the playwright's ears, guided the sculptor's chisel. Touched by divinity, the victor—athlete, playwright, sculptor—was elevated to a plane of existence beyond mere mortals. And the gods bestowed one other gift: immortality. He would live forever in the minds of man. The gods touched Leonardo da Vinci.
