“Keita:  The Heritage Of The Griot” (94 minutes)
“Keita” creates a unique world where the West Africa of the 13th Century Sundjata Epic and the West

destinies, to "know the meaning of their names." In so doing, Keita makes the case for an "Afrocentric"
education, where African tradition, not imported Western curricula, is the necessary starting point for
African development.

Free Movie: Moby Dick (1956, 116 min, NR)
Tuesday, March 3, 1 pm
Main Theater, Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas
Unlike previous film versions, John Huston's Moby Dick remains admirably faithful to its source.
Screenwriter Ray Bradbury masterfully captures the allegorical elements in Melville’s original without
sacrificing any of the film's entertainment value (Bradbury suffered his own "great white whale" in the
form of director Huston, who sadistically ran roughshod over the sensitive author throughout the film).
Look for a brilliant one-take cameo by Orson Welles in this film about Ahab’s one purpose in life--
revenge on the great white whale that maimed and disfigured him.

word and artworks by Canadian artist Cristian Aluas. The story depicts a dancer’s journey from her first
ballet class through her performance career to her eventual retirement and transition into the non-

struggle to meld those aspirations with the physical confines of her body. For more information on the

Dan Corson’s artwork straddles the disciplines of art, theatrical design, architecture, and landscape
architecture. His projects have ranged from complex rail stations and busy public intersections to quiet
interpretive buildings, meditation chambers and galleries. With a master’s degree in art from the
University of Washington and a bachelor’s in theatrical design from San Diego State University, Corson’s
work is infused with drama, passion and layered meanings, and often engages the public as co-creators
within his environments. He is particularly interested in green design and new technologies and how
these tools can help frame and amplify the natural world and our shifting relationship to it. Corson has
been honored with eight Public Art Network Year-in-Review National Awards, and has partnered with
architects and landscape architects for four AIA Awards and three ASLA awards. For more information

“Howard Hughes: Footprints in the Desert Sand” – a Chautauqua presentation by Brian Kral
Friday, April 17, noon to 1 p.m.
Free and open to the public.
Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse Jury Room, 333 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
For many Nevadans, the puzzle of Howard Hughes begins with a late-night arrival on a stretcher at the
Desert Inn Hotel in 1966, and ends just as mysteriously four years later with his secret departure. Within
that short time, the elusive billionaire, film-producer and aviation pioneer never appeared in public, but
he had purchased five Las Vegas hotels, a casino in Las Vegas and another in Reno, a television
station, an air terminal, a regional airline, and thousands of acres of Nevada real estate. More
importantly, he was credited with having legitimized corporate investment in the casino industry, which
had long been associated with money laundering for the Mob. What many people don’t know, however,
is that his involvement in Nevada began as early as the 1940s. This Humanities on the Road
presentation is produced through a partnership between the city of Las Vegas and Nevada Humanities,
and supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
