    In Update #31, you read about Ms. Lisa Shuman and Stuy Alumna ’07, Raisa Ostapenko, who auditioned Stuyvesant students for a June 3rd reading of the play Something that Belongs to You written by Stuy alumnus ‘55, Holocaust survivor, and Nobel Laureate in Chemistry,
    Dr. Roald Hoffman. The Semi-performative reading will be accompanied by a ceremony to honor Dr. Hoffmann’s accomplishments. The play tells the story of Frieda Pressner and her son Emile, who survived the Holocaust in German-occupied Poland by hiding in the attic of a Ukrainian neighbor. Set in both 1992 in Philadelphia and during the Second World War in what is today a Ukrainian village, the play explores the shades of grey that characterized interpersonal relationships during the Holocaust and aims to examine what it meant to be a rescuer, a collaborator, a perpetrator, and a victim. It is a reflection on the Holocaust by Bullets – an understudied aspect of this human tragedy.
    You can obtain tickets to the event on EventBrite for just $15. This event is organized entirely by student, faculty, and alumni volunteers. Any and all donations are appreciated to help us with expenses for the reading and commemorative ceremony. Please consider donating to the GoFundMe account:

  • 3:45p Talking Circle Around Race - Student Meeting (Library)
    Talking Circle Around Race - Student Meeting
    Mon, June 10 , 3:45pm - 5:00pm
    Library
    Join us for our 2nd monthly Talking Circle Around Race in the library on Monday, May 6th at 3:45pm.
    Stuyvesant BSL (Black Students League), ASPIRA, and the School Counseling Department will host. Subsequent meetings will be held the first Monday of every month.
    Talking circles, peacemaking circles, or healing circles, as they are variously called, are deeply rooted in the traditional practices of indigenous people. In North America, they are widely used among the First Nations people of Canada and among the many tribes of Native Americans in the US. Healing circles take a variety of forms, but most basically, members sit in a circle to consider a problem or a question. The circle starts with breathing exercises, a series of stretches, and/or a thought-provoking quote. A talking stick is held by the person who speaks (other objects may also be used, including feathers and fans). When that person is finished speaking, the talking stick is passed to the left (clockwise around the circle). Only the person holding the stick may speak. All others respectfully listen. The circle is complete when the stick passes around the circle one complete time without anyone speaking out of turn. The talking circle prevents reactive communication and directly responsive communication, and it fosters deeper listening and reflection in conversation.
