Author's Website 

Houston public relations owner and author Patricia Bernstein brings us Ten Dollars to Hate. In her book, Bernstein vividly portrays a brutal chapter of the massive 1920s incarnation of the Ku Klux Klan that infiltrated law and politics throughout the nation.

Bernstein introduces Dan Moody, a 29-year-old Texas district attorney, who was the first to successfully convict and jail five Klan members – a key event that led to the demise of this iteration of the clan.

Ben-Gurion, Epilogue

Presented in Collaboration with American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest

Directed by Yariv Mozer
Israel/France, 2016, 70 min
Hebrew, English with English subtitles, Documentary

Never-before-seen footage of Israel’s founding father and former prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, was discovered in the depths of an archive in Jerusalem and revitalized in Yariv Mozer’s Ben-Gurion, Epilogue.

The documentary features a compilation of a six-hour interview recorded in 1968. It spans several days in Ben-Gurion’s desert home at the age of 82, where he introspects on the loss of his wife, his personal health, political legacy and his hopes for peace in the Middle East.

Alexandra ZapruderTwenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film

Author's Website 

Alexandra Zapruder’s book, Twenty-Six Seconds, tells the story behind how her grandfather, Abraham Zapruder, captured the iconic footage of the JFK assassination in Dallas, TX, November 1963.

With the sole purpose of recording JFK’s motorcade passing through Dealey Plaza and later showing it to his family, Abraham instead caught the tragedy on film, resulting in many sensitive issues to consider. Author and educator, Zapruder is part of the founding staff of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
