Windsor Historical Society and Archer Memorial AME Zion Church Team Up for Martin Luther King Day Focus on Mental Health

Event Date/Time

Jan 21, 2013
5:00 pm until 8:00 pm

Description

Windsor Historical Society and Archer Memorial AME Zion Church Team Up  for Martin Luther King Day Focus on Mental Health

Each year, Archer Memorial AME Zion Church picks an issue of concern to Martin Luther King Jr. to focus on during the day commemorating his life.  Each year Windsor Historical Society offers Timely Topics programs which take issues of current concern and infuse historical perspective.  On January 21, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a break for sandwiches and sweets, our two organizations have teamed up to focus on mental health. 

In December, people around the world joined Newtown in grieving for twenty-eight deaths in Newtown’s school shootings.  Questions have centered on weapons availability, on violence in the entertainment industry, and on mental health.  Forty-eight years ago, in December of 1964 while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize, Martin Luther King said, “We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers.”  In the wake of a tragedy such as the one at Newtown, people ask, “What should be done?  What can we do?”  Answers are far from simple, but we can come together to question, to talk, and to listen.     

The program starts at 5 p.m. at Windsor Town Hall for music from Archer Memorial and First Church choirs.  Representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will present information on the prevailing issues of mental health in our state and community and will be on hand for consultation and sharing of resources.  Each year the Archer receives donations for the Scholarship fund to assist students in their pursuit of higher education.  An appeal will be made at the program.   Shortly before 7 PM, travel north to Windsor Historical Society for a light dinner of sandwiches and sweets, then hear CCSU Professor of History Dr. Matthew Warshauer discuss post-traumatic stress disorder, then called “Soldier’s Heart” affecting Civil War soldiers.  This was one of the first times in history that people began to look at war veterans with recognition that many had changed for reasons beyond their control.   People then as now questioned, “What should be done?  What can we do?”  For more information about this free program, contact the Society at 860/688-3813, online at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org or Archer Memorial Church, 860-688-5225, archermemorial@snet.net.   For more information, contact the Society at 860/688-3813 or online at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org.  Dr. Warshauer’s lecture is supported by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council.

The Windsor Historical Society, founded in 1921, invites visitors to explore the people, places, and events that have shaped Windsor for over 375 years.  The Society’s museum includes changing and permanent exhibition galleries; a hands-on-history learning center for families; a research library and manuscript collection housing Windsor photographs, documents, ephemera, and genealogical materials; a museum gift shop and two historic houses open to the public:  the 1758 John and Sarah Strong House and the 1767 Dr. Hezekiah Chaffee House. 

The Windsor Historical Society is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.  General admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, and free to children under 12 and Society members.  Call (860) 688-3813 or visit us on the web at http://windsorhistoricalsociety.org  for directions to the Society and more information about programs.  To receive e-reminders for public programs, please send your e-mail address to jalberti@windsorhistoricalsociety.org.
