In the summer of 2013, The Women’s Foundation of Lincoln/Lancaster County began a video/audio project using oral histories to highlight individuals who were active in fighting for gender equality in Lincoln during the 1970s and early 1980s. The interviews were done with women who made important progress towards equality for Nebraska, each centering on salient issues, such as education, economic independence, legal standing, intimate partner violence, childcare and reproductive health. These twelve include women who were active in the Lincoln-Lancaster County Commission on the Status of Women and the Nebraska Coalition for Women. The footage has been edited to log interviews and select clips for 2-minute audio montages which are being aired daily on the radio station KZUM (89.3) during Women’s History Month in March.

The Foundation’s goal for this project is to preserve the voices of women who fought for significant gains and to showcase activism: our purposes are to educate young people about local history that has a direct bearing on the rights they currently enjoy and to inspire them to continue fighting against injustice.

MILES TO GO is produced and edited by Elisabeth Reinkordt. Filmed by Natalia Ledford. A project of the Women's Foundation of Lincoln and Lancaster Co. with support from The Cooper Foundation.

Friday, October 3 - 7:30 p.m.

The world-renowned Alloy Orchestra returns to The Ross with a new original score accompanying the digitally restored silent film THE SON OF THE SHEIK (1926), starring Vilma Banky and Rudolph Valentino in his final role.

Sponsored by Allstate Lincoln & the Friends of The Ross with support from the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

There will be a free pre-performance reception (starting at 5:30 p.m.) for members of The Friends of The Ross and employees of Allstate Lincoln. The reception will include food and a cash bar. CLICK HERE to RSVP. By filling out the RSVP form you are submitting a reservation for the RECEPTION ONLY. You will need to purchase tickets to the Alloy performances SEPARATELY.

ALLOY ORCHESTRA is a three man musical ensemble, writing and performing live accompaniment to classic silent films. Working with an outrageous assemblage of peculiar objects, they thrash and grind soulful music from unlikely sources. Performing at prestigious film festivals and cultural centers in the US and abroad, Alloy has helped revive some of the great masterpieces of the silent era.

An unusual combination of found percussion and state-of-the-art electronics gives the Orchestra the ability to create any sound imaginable. Utilizing their famous "rack of junk" and electronic synthesizers, the group generates beautiful music in a spectacular variety of styles. They can conjure up a French symphony or a simple German bar band of the 20's. The group can make the audience think it is being attacked by tigers, contacted by radio signals from Mars or swept up in the Russian Revolution.

$25 General Admission
$20 Seniors
$15 Students, Members of Friends of the Ross

THE SON OF THE SHEIK (1926, 68 minutes)
In SON OF THE SHEIK, Valentino plays an unusual dual role, both the Sheik and his son. The son of the sheik and a dancing girl (Vilma Banky ) fall in love, but when he is made to believe she has betrayed him he seeks revenge.

SON OF THE SHEIK was Valentino’s last film. The star died of a sudden infection two weeks before the general release of the film, while he was on a nationwide promotion tour. The film was a huge hit with audiences (grossing a million dollars in the first year) and critics have deemed it the greatest work of the actor’s career.
