Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet
Houston, 77005-1803
+ Google Map
$7 – $65

This remarkable documentary chronicles the late 20th century into the 21st, as experienced by a woman who might be the original news junkie. Marion Stokes (1929–2012) became known as a passionate activist, articulately espousing her leftist views on local television in Philadelphia.

Recorder pulls you into her secret life, revealing that she spent decades obsessively recording TV programs around the clock. From the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis to the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, Stokes captured revolutions, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows, and commercials on 70,000 VHS tapes. A second marriage brought wealth, but she ultimately became a recluse who saw her life’s work to be protecting the truth by archiving everything on TV.

10th Annual Muslim-Jewish Roundtable

Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism, 801 Bering Drive.

+ Google Map
Free

This is our 10th year of coordinating a Muslim Jewish Christmas, an event where members of the Muslim community and members of the Jewish community get together. This year, there will be two simultaneous Muslim-Jewish Christmas Events in Houston with several more Muslim and Jewish organizations participating.

The theme for this year is “Standing Up for One Another.” As division and hatred become more common in our communities, honest conversation is something that we must do. As both of our communities are at the receiving end of hate, it’s important for us to come together to better understand one another.

The goal of this event has always been very simple – to come together on a day when we don’t have any other commitments and talk about our similarities and differences surrounding a specific theme.
