01/14/2018 - 3:00PM

For the last century and a half, the photo essay has been a vital cultural form.

The sensibility conveyed by Cash's photographs is engaged and caring but also honest. One feels both the thickness of history and the complexity of the present, while remaining...

01/25/2018 - 6:00PM

In early 2013 same-sex marriage was legal in only ten states and the District of Columbia. That year the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Windsor appeared to open the door to marriage equality. In Texas, Mark Phariss and Vic Holmes, together for sixteen years and deeply in love, wondered why no one had stepped across the threshold to challenge their state’s 2005 constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage. They agreed to join a lawsuit being put together by Akin...

Christine and Dennis McClure present We Fought the Road

01/28/2018 - 3:00PM

We Fought the Road is the story of the building of the Alaska-Canada Highway during World War II. More than one third of the 10,607 builders were black; thought to be incapable of performing on a war front by many of their white commanding officers. Their task--which required punching through wilderness on a route blocked by the Rocky Mountains and deadly permafrost during the worst winter on record--has been likened to the building of the Panama Canal. Unlike most accounts that focus on...
