Common Ground Coffeehouse

Date: Friday, March 17, 2017
Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

 

This Friday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m. the Common Ground Coffeehouse welcomes Ed McGuirl and Opening of Opioid Conference sponsored by NAMI Block Island with co-sponsors the Island Free Library, The Wellness Coalition, and the Block Island Medical Center. Participants in the conference will be introduced and there will be entertainment by Ed, who is a singer of Irish music, folk songs, and a few of his own. Ed’s “day job” is as a substance abuse counselor and he is offering mental health services on Block Island.

 

Supper on Friday will be served at 6:30. We will have a potluck provided by NAMI members—so far, chili, stroganoff, sandwiches, salad, and cookies. If you’d like to bring something to share, you are welcome to!

 

Friday, May 19, at 7:00 p.m. the Common Ground Coffeehouse presents I Am Not Your Negro, based on an unfinished book by James Baldwin, with memories of his friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Baldwin did have a Block Island connection and visited here; Elliot did legal work for him and visited his home in France. The film, directed by Raoul Peck, was nominated for a 2016 Academy Award as Best Documentary Feature; it has a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Supper on Friday will be served at 6:30.
