  It’s been … oh, about 2 long weeks since we talked about craft and local beer here on The Roundtable.

Let’s fix that now and mix it with talking about another thing we love: theater.

Tomorrow from 4-8 the Queensbury Hotel will host the Glens Falls Brewfest – a local beer event with proceeds going to support The Adirondack Theatre Festival and the Feeder Canal Alliance.

Here to tell us more are Mark Fleischer, Producing Artistic Director of Adirondack Theatre Festival and Bill Mason, one of the three volunteer organizers for the Glens Falls Brewfest. His day job is: co-owner, president and CEO of Takundewide Resort on Lake George.

"Stokely: A Life" By Peniel E. Joseph

    

  Stokely Carmichael, the charismatic and controversial black activist, stepped onto the pages of history when he called for “Black Power” during a speech one Mississippi night in 1966.

A firebrand who straddled both the American civil rights and Black Power movements, Carmichael would stand for the rest of his life at the center of the storm he had unleashed that night.

In Stokely, preeminent civil rights scholar Peniel E. Joseph presents a groundbreaking biography of Carmichael, using his life as a prism through which to view the transformative African American freedom struggles of the twentieth century.
