 Now, more than ever, we need to remember that there is more than one American tradition. This course is about the rebels and visionaries who shaped our sense of what is possible. We will focus on the radical tradition created by Frederick Douglass, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Helen Keller, Eugene Debs, and Martin Luther King. There will be time, too, for Rachel Carson, the Paterson Pageant, the Seattle General Strike, Bernie Sanders and Occupy Wall Street.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Grand Ultimate fist) is an ancient system of self-defense and exercise. Practiced at a very slow pace, with control of one's body as the goal, it offers many benefits to those who practice regularly. It improves balance, enhances breathing efficiency, lowers blood pressure, promotes flexibility, decreases heart rate, and improves blood circulation and posture. All the organs in the body are gently massaged while practicing, and the cardiovascular system, the heart and lungs, are especially benefited.
