Misty Water-Colored Memories? - Online Presentation

Misty Water-Colored Memories? - Online PresentationSunday, December 5, 2021, 7‑8pm EST
Location: Online
All Attendees: FREE
How do we recapture memories of our lives, of our families, of the times we lived through?  Can we really trust what we remember?  What does it mean to tell the “truth” about the past?  What do we owe to those who may remember it all differently?  Do we still see things in retrospect in the same way we experienced them in the moment?
 
Writing a memoir requires asking oneself these and other questions about memory, family, and history.  But even if you have no plans to capture your life on paper or publish the stories you want to pass on, these questions are key to harvesting the wisdom that is the gift of age.
 
Leslie Sussan will share some of her reflections on the challenges and rewards of writing a memoir.  You are invited to consider what gifts and obstacles you find in the process of looking back at families and memories from the perspective of today.

Here Slaughter expands her ideas and explains why shifts in work culture, public policy, and social mores can lead to more equality -- for men, women, all of us.

Has anything changed since 2012?

   A Look Back at the Early Days of TV Advertising 

                               Back by popular demand -Brian Rose

Those commercials we grew up with!

When television began in the late 1940s, advertising was already a vital part of the picture. TV’s first big hit, Milton Berle, appeared on The Texaco Star Theater; Frank Sinatra hosted Bulova Watch Time. Throughout the 1950s, advertisers were fully in charge, controlling the content of a large part of prime time, and selling their products through live demonstrations, celebrity testimonials, inventive animation, and ads that integrated directly into the program. 

With the shift away from full sponsorship to 30-second “participating” spots in the 1960s, a new era of creativity emerged, as advertisers embraced new techniques and approaches in order to reach new generations of consumers. This talk will look at how advertising changed during television’s first two decades and the important role it played in convincing viewers that the key to happiness lay in quite literally buying their way into the American dream.
