Woodstock returns, but will it stand out among its progeny?

(03/29/19 4:00am)

In 2018, Lana Del Rey sang: “I was at Coachella / Leaning on your shoulder / Watching your husband swing in time / I guess I was in it / ‘Cause baby, for a minute / It was Woodstock in my mind.” A year later, those at Woodstock's 50th anniversary concert may think the inverse of her pop sentiment. The founders of Woodstock 50 announced the lineup and location — not in Woodstock, New York — for their summer festival to both fanfare and bewilderment. 

Rutgers plays streak breaker against Stony Brook

(03/28/19 5:48am)

Two streaks came to an end on Tuesday as the Rutgers baseball team outlasted Stony Brook 6-5 in only their second home game of the season. The Scarlet Knights (6-15) ended their four-game losing streak with the win and ended the Seawolves' (11-8, 3-0) eight-game winning streak, the second longest in the nation. Rutgers built an early 6-0 lead off the contact hitting of freshman infielder Tim Dezzi and the power hitting of freshman outfielder Victor Valderrama, as he hit a 3-run homer in the third, putting the Knights in cruise control.

After 200 years, Walt Whitman's impact is still evident

(03/27/19 4:00am)

Arguably one of America’s most influential and innovative poets, Walt Whitman was surely ahead of his time. Written approximately 150 years ago, Whitman’s words continue to excite and liberate us as they offer insights into humanity, sexuality and personal freedom that will forever be timeless. In honor of the bicentennial of the poet’s birth, the Special Collections and University Archives at Rutgers University–New Brunswick Libraries presented its “Poet of the Future” exhibition on Tuesday. 

Celebrating humanity's shared artistic tradition: Theatre

(03/27/19 4:00am)

In May 1964, playwright, author and activist Lorraine Hansberry gave a speech to the winners of a creative writing contest hosted by Reader’s Digest and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). Included in her remarks was this illuminating quote: “Write if you will: But write about the world as it is and as you think it ought to be and must be — if there is to be a world. Write about all the things that men have written about since the beginning of writing and talking — but write to a point. Work hard at it, care about it. Write about our people: Tell their story. You have something glorious to draw on begging for attention. Don’t pass it up.”
