Thought Gallery: Three Virtual Events To Keep You Busy This Week

Consider these recommendations for upcoming virtual talks, readings and more in and around New York City:

First Peoples Week: The Great Law of Peace and Treaties of the Northeast
Tuesday, Oct. 6, 7 p.m.
The Greene Space
Live stream only
The Native American origins of the U.S. government are rarely acknowledged, despite the credit offered by founders from Franklin to Paine to Jefferson. (Among the contributions: separation of leaders for war and peace, the idea of uniting the 13 colonies, and open meetings of equal citizens, which still carries its Algonquian word—“caucus.”) As part of First Peoples Week programming, catch The Great Law of Peace and Treaties of the Northeast, presented in collaboration with the American Indian Community House (free).

An Evening with Carl Bernstein
Thursday, Oct. 8, 6 p.m.
New-York Historical Society
Live stream only
Hear the scoop straight from Carl Bernstein of All the President’s Men fame as he joins the New-York Historical Society for a look at the role of the press in Watergate times and how that reporting resonates through to today ($20).

Cinema ’62 A-Go-Go
Saturday, Oct. 10, 6 p.m.
Vitagraph Films
Live stream only
Catch a variety show virtual experience celebrating one of film’s greatest years and the cultural contexts surrounding it. Special guests, music, and prophetic politics will be included in addition to a little dancing—dressing in your 1962 finest is encouraged ($13).
