The DOA Who Made It

The DOA Who Made IT!
David Miles (author & casualty)

North Shore Library
Tuesday, April 22
7 P.M.

So... Is there life after death? Just ask the “DOA Who Made It!” Dave was sitting at a busy large intersection. He was at the front of a red-light, waiting for green, when suddenly a 54 year old who was “dead drunk”, rear-ended him at almost 50 mph. He flew while convulsing three stories high, then crushed the roof of the car that just hit him and slid down the windshield and “sailed” almost a hundred feet across the busy intersection, where he laid on his front, literally “stone dead.” After repeated attempts to revive him they finally got his pulse to stay. At the hospital they kept telling his young wife that he would NOT be alive, much longer. Though he did live, he laid in a coma for 2 weeks. Then, when he finally “came-too” he had a lot to say about “the other side” of this life.

Freedom Riders

Created Equal: America’s Civil rights Struggle
Freedom Riders

North Shore Library
Film Screening Tuesday, December 3rd 6 p.m.

Film Discussion Saturday December 7th 1 p.m.


From May until December 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives many endured savage beatings and imprisonment for simply traveling together on buses as they journeyed through the Deep South. Determined to test and challenge segregated travel facilities, the Freedom Riders were greeted with mob violence and bitter racism, sorely testing their belief in non-violent activism. From award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, Freedom Riders features testimony from a fascinating cast of central characters; the Riders themselves, state and federal government officials, and journalists who witnessed the rides firsthand. Based on Raymond Arsenault s acclaimed book Freedom Riders: 1961 and the Struggle for Racial Justice.

All films and discussions are free and open to the public

This series is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History

Please call the library at (414) 351-3461
or stop by the Reference Desk to register.
