On the Issues with Mike Gousha: Dael Orlandersmith - Poet, Playwright, Performer

Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 12:15pm Lubar Center

Please join us on March 22 for On the Issues with Mike Gousha: Dael Orlandersmith - Poet, Playwright, Performer.

Dael Orlandersmith is a world-renowned playwright and 2002 Pulitzer Prize finalist.  She is a native New Yorker, but is in Milwaukee for a Milwaukee Repertory Theater production of her play, Until the Flood.  Until the Flood explores the reactions of the St. Louis region to the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in 2014 and the protests that followed.  It is part of the Rep’s Neighbor Series, a trilogy of plays in the spring of 2018.  The goal is to prompt a larger conversation about what it means to be a neighbor and to build a stronger community.  To prepare for Until the Flood, Orlandersmith conducted dozens of interviews and eventually created eight composite characters, all of whom she plays in the production.  The play premiered in St. Louis to strong reviews.  During her visit, we’ll talk with Orlandersmith about the production and why the story she tells is as relevant to Milwaukee as it was to St. Louis.

Hon. David J. Barron, Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, Hon. S. William Green Visiting Professor of Public Law, Harvard Law School

When Congress and the Commander in Chief Clash Over War

There is no greater test of our system of separation of powers than when the Commander in Chief and Congress clash over whether and how to fight a war. But from our earliest days as a nation—in fact, from before there even was a nation—there have been such clashes. And they have continued to the present. Building off his studies and his own experiences as a legal adviser in the United States Department of Justice on national security matters, the Hon. David Barron will review the ways some of our wisest chief executives (and those who have advised them) have handled the unique dilemma that arises when Congress challenges the Commander in Chief’s preferred approach to waging war.

This annual lecture remembers E. Harold Hallows, a Milwaukee lawyer and a faculty member at Marquette Law School from 1930 to 1958 and a justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court from 1958 to 1974 (chief justice the last six years).
