Greenwich Village
Ronelle Delmont

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The world-famous Greenwich Village did not only produce Beatniks and Hippies . The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire took place there and Fiorello LaGuardia was also born there. Alan Ginsberg transformed poetry there and the Stonewall Uprising ignited a new liberation movement there. The history of modern America cannot be written without returning to this important neighborhood known for its tolerance of nonconformist attitudes and radical thinking. Ronelle, a Villager for 23 years, will use segments of films, music and photos to create the most entertaining and thought provoking Greenwich Village "tour."
LECTURES:
1. A Walking Tour
2. Music, Poetry, and Art
3. Beatniks, Radicals and Hippies
4. Cafes, Restaurants and Night Life
