Edison & Tesla, The War of the Currents A Virtual Talk with Erik Vedeler, MSEE

Edison & Tesla, The War of the Currents A Virtual Talk with Erik Vedeler, MSEE

In the late 19th century, three brilliant inventors, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse, battled over which electricity system – direct current (DC) or alternating current – would power the world’s entry into the 20th century. The stakes were monumental. The battle epic. The “dirty tricks” down right dirty. And Eric Vedeler will take the “mystery” out of electricity.

Black Hawk’s View of American History, a Virtual Performance by Brian “Fox” Ellis

Black Hawk’s View of American History, a Virtual Performance by Brian “Fox” Ellis

Imagine sitting around a campfire with Ma-ka-tai-me-she-kiuk-kiuk, Black Hawk, listening to the stories of creation and the legends of his grandfathers. Storyteller and historian Brian “Fox” Ellis begins the program with his family’s connection to the Trail of Tears and the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation from their ancestral homeland in the Carolinas. Using this personal history and a deep knowledge of Native American history this intimate story builds a bridge, bringing the audience on a journey back into those dark days of American History with both humor and real insight, drawing strength from the resilience of the people. The audience is then led down the path through time to an encounter with Black Hawk’s Band on the eve of the battle. Two-thirds of the show is drawn directly from Black Hawk’s Autobiography. Fox then seamlessly becomes the reporter who transcribed and published Black Hawk’s life story. Weaving true history with folklore to create a tapestry of symbolic language he draws the audience into the world view of this respected leader of his people. There are traditional chants and drumming songs, including a chance for the audience to sing-a-long, and celebrate the First Nations of this land, and to begin to see the world through Native eyes.
