Lunch & Learn : Live at the Apollo!

In the virtual Lunch and Learn, participants will bring a lunch and will connect with other Osher members over a casual, shared meal. Following lunch, members will participate in a live, virtual (online) Go Explore to the Apollo Theater in New York. Experience Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater — the soul of American culture with Apollo’s ambassador and historian Billy “Mr. Apollo” Mitchell and Apollo Digital Archivist Brad San Martin. You’ll learn about the legendary history of The Apollo Theater, drawing from Mr. Mitchell’s decades of experience, and have behind the scenes access, including seeing memorabilia – photographs and video – from The Apollo’s archives. With The Apollo celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, this interactive presentation connects the theater’s past, present and future and reinforces The Apollo’s deep and longstanding connection to the Harlem community.
