Indie Lens Pop-Up: “Mr. Soul!”

Ends at 11:59 p.m. March 5

Virtual, steamboatlibrary.org/events/mrsoul

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of “Mr. Soul!” Before Oprah and Arsenio, there was Mr. Soul, who captured a critical moment in culture. His impact continues to resonate today. From 1968 into 1973, the PBS variety show “Soul!” guided by producer and host Ellis Haizlip, offered an unfiltered, uncompromising celebration of Black literature, poetry, music and politics. The series was among the first to provide expanded images of African Americans on TV, shifting the gaze from inner-city poverty and violence to the vibrancy of the Black arts movement.


Laps for Love

Ends at 11:30 p.m. Sunday

The Haven, 300 S. Shelton Lane in Hayden

Community members are invited to enjoy the new groomed track around The Haven assisted living facility. Snowshoe or cross country ski, and log laps for a chance to win local prizes. It is free to participate, but donations to support The Haven are encouraged. Also submit a note or word of encouragement to be shared with residents throughout the building.
