6:30 pm: Power of Protest Film Series: Freedom Riders
October 21, 2019 –
Screening Freedom Riders (2010) (Directed by Stanley Nelson Jr.)
Description: "Freedom Riders is the powerful harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws in order to test and challenge a segregated interstate travel system, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism." Ron VanNostrand, an experienced Auburn community organizer, will moderate the discussion: inviting audiences to consider the impact of civil disobedience in the face of unjust systems, and its impact across the United States' history. Click Here for the Full Film Description.
Change Makers Around the World, a Power of Protest Film Series, is presented in four, monthly documentaries from September to December. Each session will be hosted in the Carriage House Theater from 6:30-8:30PM.
Admission for each session is free, though donations to the museum are welcomed.

7:00 pm: An Unhealthy History?: Dr. Theodore Dimon and the Rise of Victorian Medicine
October 23, 2019 –
Back by popular demand! Yale Professor of Pathology Dr. Gustave Davis returns to Auburn to discuss the fascinating—and occasionally gruesome medical history—of the Seward family, and of Auburn in general, in the middle 19th century. Davis will do this through the story of Doctor Theodore Dimon, Seward’s doctor, personal friend, and one of his few contemporaries with a life story to match his own. Dimon was an original 49er, Republican stalwart, Civil War diarist, Superintendent of the Auburn Prison, and creator of the Gettysburg National Cemetery. He was also a medical pioneer in Central New York whose practice in Auburn left a deep mark in this community.
Gustave Davis is a Clinical Professor of Pathology at the Yale University Medical School. Like Mr. Seward, Dr. Davis is an alum of Union College and has conducted extensive research on Seward’s legacy as well as the untold biography of Dimon.
10/23 from 7:00-8:00 PM at the Carriage House Theater. Admission is $10 for members of the Seward House Museum or the Cayuga Museum of History and Art, $15 for members of the public. Space is limited. Reservations are recommended and open on Tuesday, 9/17.
