Join professor, author, DJ, and filmmaker Dr. Tom Shaker for a film series about pop, Latin Boogaloo, and rock 'n' roll in the 1960s and beyond. Watch a film at home, and then discuss it online on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

On January 13, join the conversation about "Echo in the Canyon." Celebrate the explosion of popular music that came out of LA in the 1960s as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound.

On January 20, talk about "We Like It Like That: The Story of Latin Boogaloo." Discover Latin boogaloo, the funky and colorful expression of 1960s New York City Latino soul, from its origins to its recent resurgence.

On January 27, chat about "Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World." Explore the music of pioneering Native American musicians Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Jesse Ed Davis, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo, and more.

Watch the films on Kanopy, Warwick Public Library's streaming movie channel, with your Warwick Library card. If you don't have a library card, call (401) 739-5440 to find out how to get a card online or in-person.
