The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is connecting homebound audiences to timely discussions and music with this season’s virtual First Fridays Connected: L.A. at the Intersections.
On Friday, April 2, groove at home with DJ Francesca Harding and prepare a special cocktail presented by Elle Nucci. Then, dive into a lively live stream discussion around the Climate Crisis, moderated by Knatokie Ford, founder and CEO of Fly Sci Enterprise; with panelists Leah Thomas, intersectional environmental activist and eco-communicator; and Nick Shapiro, assistant professor of biology and society at UCLA.
There is no denying that we are in a climate crisis. Why do people overlook the proof? How can a consensus on the crisis be achieved? How are climate change and environmental issues affecting communities of color? How can we all effect change? Who are the change makers?
After the discussions, enjoy a performance by Sudan Archives, a violinist and vocalist who writes, plays and produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs also fold in elements of R&B and experimental electronic music.
NHMLAC members can exclusively watch the preshow Secrets from the Vault with Betty Uyeda, collections manager of history/Seaver Center, to learn about the collection she oversees and discover details hidden in plain sight.
The event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. It is free but reservations are required. Only one reservation per household is needed. For information and to RSVP, visit bit.ly/FFCApr21.
