Episode II - The Story We Tell
It's true that race has always been with us, right? Wrong. Ancient peoples stigmatized "others" on the grounds of language, custom, class and especially religion, but they did not sort people according to physical differences. It turns out that the concept of race is a recent invention, only a few hundred years old, and the history and evolution of the idea are deeply tied to the development of the U.S.

A ceili ("kay-lee") is a traditional Irish gathering for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or "craic," as the Irish might say.) Traditional ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and corner road gatherings in the rural countrysides and are still danced in Ireland. The bonfire, haymaker's jig, Siege of Ennis, fairy reel and other dances are very easy to learn. These traditional country folk dances have a follow-the-leader pattern that new dancers can learn on their first attempt -- so come and join us for an evening of fun!
