Goody Garlick was accused of witchcraft in the 17th century by Lion Gardiner’s daughter, Elizabeth Howell, who died days after childbirth. Was she really a witch or just a victim of the times? Who were the players in this intriguing story and how did the time period affect the outcome?

Film Screening: The Learning Tree

As an African-American teen in small-town Kansas in the 1920s, Newt Winger (Kyle Johnson) largely shrugs off the racial prejudice of his time and place. His calm and self-controlled perspective is in direct opposition to that of his quick-tempered friend, Marcus Savage (Alex Clarke). But when Marcus’ father, Booker (Richard Ward), murders a man — and Newt witnesses the crime — Newt realizes that going to the police could jeopardize both his   friendship and his life.
