    On April 12, 1963 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested in Birmingham, Alabama. It wasn’t his first time in prison, and it wouldn’t be his last. In jail King penned one of the most important statements on morality, politics, and social justice ever written, known to us as “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” We’ll examine this pivotal moment in the American Civil Rights Movement from every angle, and study King’s subtle, powerful, and persuasive argument that non-violent civil disobedience, no matter how disruptive or inconvenient, was our moral obligation. His words have never been truer than they are today. Sixty minute presentation followed by a 30 minute Q&A.

    When incapacity or death strikes it’s too late for your kids / heirs to ask questions. It’s also too late to see if there are errors or gaps in your planning.  In this class I will be guiding you through the process for setting up a 1-page instruction sheet for your heirs.  You will also be creating a binder that contains the essential items your heirs will need.  As you are guided through the worksheet, we will be talking about the tax and financial repercussions that your heirs will be dealing with. I am particularly passionate about this exercise after my own father passed way.   He had a tax practice, my brother is a CPA, I am a CFP, and the trust planning was in place. And yet, there were a few areas that we overlooked and that sent us to probate and triggered unnecessary taxes.  I want to help you avoid this and that’s why I created this process.  This will be a hands-on working and learning environment. Please register early so materials can be sent to you beforehand. You will need to either print them out or ask for a mailed copy. Barbara Norman, CFP®, ChFC® CDFA® is the CEO of Sage Path Solutions,  the Founder of The Women’s Financial Academy – a CA non-profit organization dedicated to education, and a member of Ed Slott’s Master Elite IRA Advisor program.    Barbara has a tax background and has served in the financial services industry since 1986.

    Starting about a hundred years after his death, a small but growing industry began of making collectible items related to Shakespeare. Professor Kim Keeline will trace the history of these Shakespeariana and how it shows not only the popularity of William Shakespeare and his plays but also how he’s come to stand in as a marker for literature, education, theatre, lowbrow/high brow culture, and literacy. The Shakespeare industry is so huge now that there is quite a bit at stake over the “Authorship Question” of whether the man actually wrote his plays.  Take a look at the sublime, the weird and wacky, and the things you could have in your home today (some of which I, in fact, do own) with this survey of Shakespeariana—which covers books, statues, artwork, bandaids, bubble gum, and so much more.
