Carver Cultural Center

City of San Antonio

The Neighborhood Film Project wraps up on Wednesday night. Debbie Racca-Sittre is the Department for Culture and Creative Development's interim director.

"We really try to bring people in from across the city so that they can showcase their own film making abilities, and tell about their community, their neighborhoods in a short film."

A voice you probably already know returns to San Antonio on Friday night. Probably most known for the female accompaniment to the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger's singing of  Gimme Shelter -- what does that feel like when she hears the haunting beginning chords of the song?

She took a deep breath before she answered. "Oh gosh...every time I hear it I feel like it takes me into kind of a sacred place. It feels like home. To just be with Mick and to give him what he needs for that song is just magical!"

It's a big weekend with outstanding weather predicted. I've found that great music, free trees,  and Kinky Boots are on the horizon. First off, starting tonight, music from some of the biggest black entertainers of the recent past. The Carver Cultural Center's Teresa Vasquez-Romero:

"Etta James, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington."

Magik Theatre

From innovative art pop-ups to a children's stage performance to big time Jazz -- the weekend's packed with fun.  First off, this weekend at the McNay Art Museum, it's the Meet The Future Pop-Up.

"We are celebrating six Texas-based artists," explains Julie Ledet, these exhibits aren't the long term kind.

The movie Selma was screened Monday night at the Carver Cultural Center.  About a hundred people showed up on a cool evening and Councilman Alan Warrick was there--the anticipation was palpable.

"This is going to be a very interesting occasion. I've heard so much about George Wallace. He's kindof the antagonist for every civil rights story that happened in Alabama in the period," Warrick said.

You may well remember the phrase that George Wallace has long been remembered for, his exhortation "Segregation now. Segregation tomorrow. Segregation forever!"
