[email protected][email protected]!>>THIS AND MORE RIGHT NOW, ON “BROAD & HIGH.” [email protected][email protected]!>>HI, EVERYONE. HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND THANK YOU FOR SPENDING PART OF YOUR DAY WITH “BROAD & HIGH” – I’M YOUR HOST KATE QUICKEL. OUR FIRST STOP TONIGHT IS THE COLUMBUS MUSEUM OF ART. THEIR CURRENT EXHIBITION IS PART OF A CITYWIDE CELEBRATION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE, A CULTURAL MOVEMENT THAT EXTENDED FAR BEYOND THE NEW YORK NEIGHBORHOOD IN WHICH IT WAS BORN. AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, BIOGRAPHER AND COLUMBUS NATIVE WIL HAYGOOD, WHO CURATED THE SHOW, TELLS US HOW IMPORTANT AND EXCITING THIS MOMENT IN TIME REALLY WAS. [email protected][email protected]!>>THIS WAS A VERY, VERY UNFAIR, UNJUST, WRETCHED COUNTRY FOR BLACKS WHO WANTED TO EXPRESS THEIR ART.>>THE REAL MEAT OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE WENT FROM ABOUT 1920 TO 1930. IT WAS JUST THIS GREAT ARTISTIC REACTION TO ALL OF THE RACISM AND HARDSHIPS THAT AMERICAN SOLDIERS SAW SURING WORLD WAR I WHEN THEY WERE OVERSEAS, SO THEIR MINDSET WAS “HOW COME THE FRENCH AND THE ITALIANS TREAT US MUCH BETTER THAN WE ARE TREATED BACK IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? AND HERE WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE FREEDOM OF OUR HOME COUNTRY.” AND SO WHEN ALL OF THESE SOLDIERS CAME BACK INTO THEIR COMMUNITIES, THERE HAD BEEN A LOT OF ESSAYS AND ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT THE DESIRE FOR BLACK PATRIOTS TO SUPPORT THE ARTS AND TO EXPRESS THIS GENIUS THAT HAD BEEN IGNORED FOR SO LONG. SO, YOU HAD THIS MOVEMENT THAT GREW OUT OF BLOODSHED IN A WAR THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN NOW COULD BE SYMBOLIZED WITH MUSIC, DANCE, THEATRE, LITERATURE, BOOK WRITING, AND THAT’S HOW IT SORT OF STARTED TO FLOURISH IN EARLY 1920s. IT IS THE ONE ARTISTIC MOVEMENT THAT IS UNDENIABLE IN THE MATURATION — POLITICAL, ECONOMICALLY, SOCIALLY, AND DEFINITELY ARTISTICALLY OF THIS COUNTRY. THAT’S HARLEM RENAISSANCE ART HANGS IN THE WHITE HOUSE. THAT’S WHY HARLEM RENAISSANCE ART IS CELEBRATED IN CANADA AND FRANCE AND GERMANY. IT’S JUST AN UNDENIABLE RECOGNITION OF A GREAT MOMENT IN THIS COUNTRY. [email protected][email protected]! JAMES VAN DER ZEE STARTED OUT SORT OF TAKING ORDINARY PHOTOGRAPHS OF BLACK FOLK IN HARLEM. WEDDING PICTURES, SOCIAL TEAS, THINGS OF THAT NATURE. AND SO HE STARTS REALLY, REALLY FALLING IN LOVE AS WELL WITH THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE THAT’S ALL CIRCULATING AROUND HIM. POETS ARE OVER THERE AND MUSICIANS ARE OVER THERE AND NOVELISTS ARE OVER THERE AND DANCERS ARE OVER THERE AND POLITICIANS ARE OVER THERE. AND HE SAYS, “WHOA, THIS REALLY IS AMAZING. I HAVE TO GET MY CAMERA GOING.” AND SO HE WAS THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPHER WHO REALLY RECOGNIZED THAT THIS MOVEMENT NEEDED TO BE CAPTURED. JUST KNOWING THAT HE HAD THE SENSIBILITY TO CAPTURE THIS MOMENT IS JUST ASTONISHING. THE BEST TIME AND LIFE AND LOOK. PHOTOGRAPHERS HAD NOTHING ON JAMES VAN DER ZEE. [email protected][email protected]! AND THERE WERE MAGAZINE EDITORS WHO WERE PROGRESSIVE AND WHO WANTED THIS MEAT, EXPLOSIVE, BLACK, ARTISTIC VOICE TO BE HEARD. ONE OF THE WRITERS, ARNA BONTEMPS, WROTE A LETTER TO LANGSTON HUGHES AND HE SAID, “HARLEM THESE DAYS SEEMS LIKE,” QUOTE, “A FORETASTE OF PARADISE.” THAT’S HOW AMAZING IT ALL WAS. [email protected][email protected]! I KNEW I WANTED THIS EXHIBIT TO BE HEAVY ON WRITERS BECAUSE I’M A WRITE. ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE IS THAT THESE WRITERS AND THESE ARTISTS HAD A REAL SENSE THAT THEY WERE DOING SOMETHING UNIQUE. AND THANK GOD THEY SAVED THEIR FIRST DRAFTS OR SECOND DRAFTS OR THIRD DRAFTS, THEY SAVED THEIR LETTERS. ALL OF THOSE LITTLE MAPS TO ARTISTIC CREATIVITY WERE FASCINATING TO ME. [email protected][email protected]! ART HELPS, I THINK, SOFTEN THE HUMANITY IN US ALL, AND SO, WERE IT NOT FOR THIS MOVEMENT, OTHER ART MOVEMENTS MIGHT NOT EVEN SPRING UP. I MEAN, THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE GAVE WOMEN, GAVE IMPOVERISHED PEOPLE ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY A HINT OF JUST WHAT YOU CAN DO IF YOU WANT TO PUT YOUR ART ON THE LINE. ‘CAUSE ALL THEY REALLY WANTED IS TO SHOW AMERICA THAT, IF YOU GIVE US A FAIR CHANCE, WE WILL PRODUCE GREATNESS. FROM THAT MOVEMENT, THEY HAVE STITCHED THE BLACK AMERICAN FOR EVERMORE INTO THE ARTISTIC FABRIC OF THIS COUNTRY. AND THAT’S A TALL ORDER TO IMAGINE IT AND THEN TO EXECUTE IT.

LAST MONTH, A GROUP OF TIBETAN MONKS VISITED DUBLIN TO CREATE A MANDALA. THEY SPENT FIVE DAYS – AND MILLIONS OF GRAINS OF COLORED SAND – TO CREATE AN ELABORATE SAND PAINTING ONLY TO CEREMONIOUSLY DESTROY IT WHEN THEY WERE FINISHED. THIS ARTISTIC PROCESS IS A SPIRITUAL ONE, MEANT TO SYMBOLIZE THE IMPERMANENCE OF ALL LIVING THINGS. [ CHANTING ]>>>WELL, WE’RE IN COFFMAN PARK IN DUBLIN. WHAT’S HAPPENING BEHIND US IS HE MONKS FROM DREPUNG LOSELING MONASTERY ARE CREATING A SAND MANDALA. [ CHANTING ] AND IT’S JUST AN OPEN PROCESS WHERE YOU CAN VIEW THE CREATION OF OUR — BEFORE WE RISE.>>ALL MEN MUST PLACE A MENTAL ROLE IN TERMS OF PRESERVING CULTURE, PRETENDING TO BETTER ALIGN WITH, YOU KNOW, BUDDHISM AND SO FORTH. AND SO THIS MANDALA IS CALLED AVALOKITESHVARA, WITH OUR COMPASSION. [ CHANTING ] [email protected][email protected]!>>BEFORE THAT MANDALA STARTS TO TAKE SHAPE, THEY NEED TO BLESS THE ENVIRONMENT AND SORT OF BRING IN THE — BRING IN THE GOOD ENERGY, SO THE BROUGHT OUT HORNS AND SYMBOLS AND IT WAS JUST A FULL CELEBRATION OF LIFE. [email protected][email protected]!>>AT THE BEGINNING OF, YOU KNOW, CONSTRUCTING MANDALA, WE DO SOME CHANTS AND MEDITATIONS AND THEIR RECITATIONS. AT THE SAME TIME, WE OFFER THE SOUNDS TO THE DIFFERENT BUDDHAS, AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS CASE, BUDDHA OF COMPASSION. [ CHANTING ] [email protected][email protected]!>>THIS TAKES A COUPLE DAYS, ACTUALLY, FOUR DAYS TO REALIZE, SO IT’S REAL PAINSTAKING PROCESS. AND IT JUST TAKES A LOT OF CARE AND PRECISION.>>THIS TOOL, WE CALL IT “CHAK-PUR”, WE FILL THIS CHAK-PUR WITH SCENTS FIRST AND THEN WE BEGIN RELEASED SCENT, MAKING REPARATION. [ CHANTING ] [ CHANTING ]>>WELL, I THINK THIS IS THE SORT OF THE STRANGE CONCEPT THAT LIFE IMPERMANENCE AND CHANGE, AND SO THE SAND IS SWEPT AWAY AND THE DESIGN IS DESTROYED. [ CHANTING ]>>SO, WE HOPE PEOPLE COME HERE AND THEY SEE MANDALA. AND WE HOPE MANDALA CAN INSPIRE THEM TO LEARN THERE’S END OF LIFE. YOU KNOW, WE FORGET THAT, RIGHT? SO, EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW, WE PLAN IN OUR LIFE WE’RE PLANNING, LIKE, WE LIVE FOREVER, BUT IT’S KIND OF A REMINDER THAT THERE IS AN END OF LIFE.

THERE A MOTHER-DAUGHTER TEAM TURNS CHERISHED MEMORIES INTO HUGGABLE KEEPSAKES FOR FAMILIES TO REMEMBER THEIR LOVED ONES. [email protected][email protected]!>>>THERE’S JUST SO MUCH MEANING BEHIND WHAT WE DO. IT MAKES US FEEL GOOD. IT MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD. AND IT’S A WIN-WIN SITUATION. WE CREATE CUSTOM MEMORY BEARS, AND WE ALSO DO NOVELTY BEARS, AND MEMORY PILLOWS AS WELL.>>Announcer: MOST OF THE BEARS AND JENNI AND HER MOM SUSIE CREATE BY HANDS ARE THE MEMORY BEARS, WHICH ARE MADE TO REMEMBER THE PASSING OF A LOVED ONE.>>I DON’T KNOW IF ANYBODY EVER GETS CLOSURE FROM A LOVED ONE PASSING AWAY, BUT THE MEMORIES, WHAT WE HOPE IS IT BRINGS UP ALL THOSE HAPPY MEMORIES FOR ALL THE TIME THAT THEY DID GET TO SPEND TOGETHER.>>Announcer: THE MEMORY BEARS ARE MADE WITH A SPECIAL KIND OF MATERIAL.>>WE’RE ACTUALLY USING SOMEONE’S PERSONAL ITEM THAT HAVE A TON OF MEANING.>>Announcer: THE ITEM COULD BE A SHIRT OR A DRESS THAT THE PERSON USED TO WEAR.>>IT IS TUCKED AWAY AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU DO FORGET, SO IF YOU TAKE THAT SHIRT AND YOU DO MAKE IT INTO A BEAR, IT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN PHYSICALLY HOLD, AND LOVE, AND SEE EACH DAY. WITH EACH BEAR THERE’S SUCH A STORY. AND THAT’S REALLY WHAT WE WANTED IS TO KEEP THE STORY GOING.>>Announcer: THE STORY BEHIND THIS BEAR IS JENNI AND SUSIE’S STORY. IT’S THE BEAR THAT STARTED IT. THEY CALL HIM THEIR POP-POP BEAR.>>POP-POP IS MY HUSBAND’S GRANDFATHER. AND HE HAD FIVE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN. HE JUST HAD SUCH A SPITFIRE PERSONALITY AND YOU JUST COULDN’T HELP JUST TO — JUST TO LOVE HIM.>>HE WAS SO LOVABLE. [ LAUGHTER ] [email protected][email protected]!>>FOR ME PERSONALLY, YOU KNOW MARRYING INTO THE FAMILY, HE INSTANTLY MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS HIS GRANDDAUGHTER AND WE HAD A REALLY DEEP CONNECTION. AND SO, WHEN HE PASSED, WE JUST REALLY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR ALL — ESPECIALLY THE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND SO THAT’S WHERE WE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA OF GETTING SOME OF HIS SHIRTS AND PUTTING BEARS TOGETHER FOR ALL THE GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN. ONCE WE MADE OUR FIRST BEAR FOR POP-POP, WE HAD CLOSE FRIENDS ACTUALLY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT HAD SEEN THE BEARS AND THEY THOUGHT YOU KNOW WE’D REALLY LOVE TO HAVE MEMORIES OF OUR GRANDPARENTS, OR OUR PARENTS, OR LOVED ONES THAT WE’VE LOST. AND SO, WE JUST KIND OF THOUGHT WELL, OKAY MAYBE WE CAN DO THIS FOR OTHER PEOPLE AND YOU KNOW HELP THEM AS WELL.>>HI!>>Announcer: NIKKI HAS HAD SEVERAL BEARS MADE BY JENNI AND SUSIE.>>MY DAD GOT SICK UNFORTUNATELY AND PASSED AWAY FROM PANCREATIC CANCER LAST YEAR. I HAD ASKED MY STEPMOM FOR SOME OF HIS CLOTHING TO BE ABLE TO MAKE INTO BEARS. HE’S ACTUALLY WEARING THE SHIRT AND THEN HOLDING MY DAUGHTER WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT FOUR MONTHS OLD. ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT I REALLY LOVE THAT THEY’RE ABLE TO DO IS MATCH THE EYE COLOR. MY DAD LIKE ME, HE HAD GREEN EYES.>>Announcer: SHE ALSO HAD A BEAR MADE IN HONOR OF HER GRANDMOTHER.>>THE MATERIAL CAME FROM MY GRANDMOTHER’S WEDDING DRESS AND THE LACE THAT ARE ON THE FEET AND THE EARS CAME FROM THE TOP OF HER DRESS. THE BUTTONS THAT WE HAVE HERE ARE FROM THE BACK OF HER WEDDING DRESS. AND THEN THEY WERE ABLE TO INCORPORATE SOME OF THE BEAD WORK THAT WE HAVE HERE. WE MADE THAT INTO A LITTLE NECKLACE AND THAT CAME FROM THE TOP OF MY GRANDMOTHER’S WEDDING DRESS AS WELL. SO, FOR US, MY GRANDMA.>>IT WAS SUCH THAT RAW EMOTION THAT AT THE BEGINNING OF STARTING OUR BUSINESS THAT REALLY — WE JUST KIND OF LOOKED AT EACH OTHER LIKE THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.>>IT REALLY MAKES US FEEL LIKE WE’RE HELPING SOMEONE THROUGH A DIFFICULT IN THEIR LIVES. WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN REALLY, REALLY CLOSE AND BEST FRIENDS. WE HAVE SOMEONE FUN. IT’S FOR ME PERSONALLY, IT’S A BUCKET LIST TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH HER.>>IT MAKES IT MORE FUN WHEN YOU SHARE IT WITH SOMEBODY THAT YOU LOVE AND HOPEFULLY GIVING HER SOMETHING FOR THE FUTURE TOO OF BEING ABLE TO CARRY ON AND, YOU KNOW, KEEP MAKING A BUSINESS OUT OF IT. AND BEING ABLE TO BE AT HOME WITH THE KIDS. AND, YOU KNOW, GIVE HER AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT.>>FIRST HEN COMES IN. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE BEAR SHE SAYS.>>Announcer: AND WHAT WOULD POP-POP THINK OF ALL THIS?>>HE WOULD JUST BE TICKLED AND SO PROUD. I MEAN, PROUD WOULD BE THE WORD FOR SURE.
