“Bearing Witness: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement by Ernest C. Withers,” in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School features compelling black-and-white photographs taken between 1961 and 1968. The exhibit will run through May 16, 2018.

Withers was the only photographer who covered the entire trial of those charged with killing Emmett Till, a black teenager wrongly accused of whistling at a white woman, and Withers’ self-published photo pamphlet of the murder and trial helped spur the movement for equal rights. Over the course of his career, Withers accumulated a collection of an estimated 1.8 million photographs. His work appeared in publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post, Jet, Ebony, Newsweek, Life, and Time; was collected in four books; and has been featured in touring exhibits and shows around the world. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., currently displays more than 30 of his images. Withers was elected to the Black Press Hall of Fame and received an honorary doctorate from the Massachusetts College of Art.

The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School, 755 South Price Road, St. Louis, MO, 63124. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.

"Chicano Batman, a quartet from Los Angeles, embrace a kind of cultural ricochet effect, playing fuzzed-out soul with pan-Latin grooves and rhythms that reflect and demonstrate their Mexican, Central and South American heritage, but with musical roots pointing back to Curtis Mayfield and James Brown. If the music of the African diaspora boomerangs all over the world— picking up bits of regional flavor wherever locals develop a taste for jazz, blues, gospel, reggae and other styles—then certainly, Chicano Batman's sound is steeped in Tropicália from Brazil, Peruvian psych-rock and Mexican garage jams, as well as American soul. The styles all reflect off each other in one way or another. The band makes excellent use of wah-wahs, overdriven organ and generally retro effects, playing dance-friendly music that is still totally 21st-century American." – John Adamian, Relix Magazine

Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author Seamus McGraw, who will sign and discuss his new book, "A Thirsty Land: The Making of an American Water Crisis"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "A Thirsty Land" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

As a changing climate threatens the whole country with deeper droughts and more furious floods that put ever more people and property at risk, Texas has become a bellwether state for water debates. Is it in the nature of Americans to adapt to nature in flux? The most comprehensive—and comprehensible—book on contemporary water issues, "A Thirsty Land" delves deep into the challenges faced not just by Texas but by the nation as a whole, as we struggle to find a way to balance the changing forces of nature with our own ever-expanding needs. Part history, part science, part adventure story, and part travelogue, this book puts a human face on the struggle to master that most precious and capricious of resources.

Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis illustrator Christina "Steenz" Stewart, who will sign and discuss her new graphic novel, "Archival Quality"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Archival Quality" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

After losing her job at the library, Cel Walden starts working at the haunting Logan Museum as an archivist. But the job may not be the second chance she was hoping for, and she finds herself confronting her mental health, her relationships, and before long, her grasp on reality as she begins to dream of a young woman she's never met, but feels strangely drawn to. Especially after she asks Cel for help… As Cel attempts to learn more about the woman, she begins losing time, misplacing things, passing out—the job is becoming dangerous, but she can't let go of this mysterious woman. Who is she? Why is she so fixated on Cel? And does Cel have the power to save her when she's trying to save herself? "Archival Quality" is co-created by Steenz and author Ivy Noelle Weir.
