Loving is far from easy and often beyond our powers of control.  These stories come from:  Italy (LA STRADA), England (PERSUASION), China (IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE),  Russia (SINCE OTAR LEFT), England/Italy, (A ROOM WITH A VIEW) and Japan (LIKE FATHER LIKE SON). Most of these films were shown in an earlier class.

 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.
