In Our Town, choirmaster Simon Stimson suffered from alcoholism in isolation. Hiding addiction still happens today, but communities can combat the shame of dependency by having open, honest conversations about causes and treatments. In The Anonymous People, director Greg Williams begins this conversation by exploring a criminal justice system that favors incarceration over treatment, a news media that exploits addiction to entertain, and the belief that substance dependence is a moral failure instead of an illness. After the film, Issy Hyde, board member of the Wabash Valley Recovery Alliance, will discuss local community resources that aim to help with addiction recovery. This film is rated Mature. 88 minutes.

In the final act of Our Town, Emily Webb takes her place in Grover's Corners' cemetery, among several other citizens who had passed since 1901. Noticeably absent are faces of color. Is this an omission on Thornton Wilder's part or a representation of a time in America when even cemeteries were segregated? Crystal Reynolds, PhD, will provide insight into the hidden history of African American burials, examine African American burial practices, and look at three notable African American cemeteries and burial grounds across the United States.

In the early twentieth century, gender roles impacted the citizens of Grover's Corners in every aspect of their lives. More than a century later, women's roles have expanded, yet women are still underrepresented in leadership positions.
Laura Merrifeld Wilson, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Indianapolis, will discuss how historical expectations for women still affect their participation in government roles today. Dr. Wilson, a specialist in gender
politics, campaigns and elections, and state government, will share her research on women's roles in politics and how historical assumptions about women's work impact female representation in government. She will also discuss changes that society should make to encourage more women to run for office.
