Professor Eleanor Traylor earned her Ph.D. degree in English from Catholic University of America in 1976.

From 1959 to 1965, Traylor taught English courses at Howard University in Washington, D.C. She went on to become a professor of English at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland, where she taught from 1965 to 1990. While there, Traylor was a collaborating author alongside Toni Morrison on the textbook, College Reading Skills. She also served as the English department chair for the graduate school of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Traylor taught as a guest lecturer at Georgetown University in 1966; as a visiting professor at the African Studies and Research Center of Cornell University in 1979; and as an adjunct professor of drama at Howard University in 1968, where she produced a dramatic reading of Owen Dodson’s The Dream Awake. In 1973, Traylor received a research fellowship to study African drama in Ghana and Nigeria. In 1990, she was hired as a graduate professor of English at Howard University. She also chaired the humanities division until 1993 when she was named chair of the Department of English at Howard University. As chair, Traylor established the annual Heart’s Day Conference which honored African Americans in literature. During her tenure at Howard University, Traylor co-wrote several textbooks, worked as a consultant on the film Amistad and directed the production of Stepping Out of the Negro Caravan in collaboration with George Faison, Debbie Allen and other Howard University alumni.

Traylor served as director of evaluation procedures at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts as well as a panelist for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts. She also served on the board of the D.C. Black Repertory Theater Company. She was also an evaluator for the Afro-American Museums Association. In addition to working as a script writer and consultant for the Smithsonian Institution, Traylor also assisted the National Black Arts Festival as a literature consultant.

Traylor received several awards and honors for her work, including the Hazel Joan Bryant Award in 1987 as well as the Marcus Garvey Award, the Catholic University Alumni Achievement Award in literary criticism, and the Larry Neal-Georgia Douglas Johnson Award for literature and community service in 1989. In 1993, Traylor was honored with the African Heritage Studies Association Community Service Award and the Amoco Foundation’s Excellence in Teaching Award. In addition to receiving a Doctor of Humane Letters from Spelman College in 2002, Traylor was also awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from Howard University in 2017.

The Highlands Community Bank Film Series
The Notebook (PG 13)
Tues., Aug. 13 at 7pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
at the Historic Masonic Theatre
**All Films are Free**


The film that launched a thousand memes.

As a book, The Notebook wowed audiences. Amazon reviewer, Annie, left this lovely note:
"In so many ways this is my parents life. My Mom had Alzheimer's Disease and had to be put in a Nursing Home, but my Dad lives with my sister and he went to the Nursing Home every night for the past 11 years. He would spend time with her, feed her ice cream, help to bathe her and get her ready for bed. He would cover her in a quilt and whisper sweet somethings to her, told her he loved her, said goodnight and God Bless you. On November 8th, 2013, she passed away. The day of her Service before they closed the casket, my Dad tucked her in one last time. They both were 90 years old and both never dated anyone but each other. What an inspiration, honorable, devoted and loving parents we have. NICHOLAS SPARKS this book is phenomenal!!! Breathtaking story!"

As a movie, it became a romance classic.
In 1940s South Carolina, mill worker Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and rich girl Allie (Rachel McAdams) are desperately in love. But her parents don't approve. When Noah goes off to serve in World War II, it seems to mark the end of their love affair. In the interim, Allie becomes involved with another man (James Marsden). But when Noah returns to their small-town years later, on the cusp of Allie's marriage, it soon becomes clear that their romance is anything but over.

Join us for the first in our year-long series of films.

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE:
For years we've been trying to get the rights to screen the film that film that launched a franchise. This summer, Disney (who now owns the Star Wars franchise) unlocked the public screening rights for 6 weeks only. At the end of August, the screening rights go back into a Disney vault.

JOIN US TO RELIVE THE BIG SCREEN MAGIC.

You remember:
Swinging sticks in the backyard (or living room) and making weird buzzing sounds. If you had a brother or sister, the duel was on!
Heavy breathing? Uh-oh, the original 'dark lord' was near.
And a rolling fire hydrant shaped droid became an instant fan favorite.
You know you dressed for Halloween as one of the characters in this film. Probably even won a costume contest or two, as well.

THE FILM THAT LAUNCHED THE KESSEL RUN CONTROVERSY:

Han Solo: You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon!?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Should I have?
Han Solo: Its the ship that made The Kessel Run in less then 12 parsecs!

Join us for this film event.

The Imperial Forces -- under orders from cruel Darth Vader (David Prowse) -- hold Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) hostage, in their efforts to quell the rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), captain of the Millennium Falcon, work together with the companionable droid duo R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) to rescue the beautiful princess, help the Rebel Alliance, and restore freedom and justice to the Galaxy.

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre

The Highlands Community Bank Film Series
Beauty and The Beast (G)
Sun., Aug. 25 at 2pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
at the Historic Masonic Theatre
**All Films are Free**

Beauty and the Beast is funny and lively and preposterous. The original animated version recalls the music, voices and whimsy that can only be found in the world of Disney.

Beast is just fun! Unlike a lot of Disney princes of that time, he is super flawed. He’s a brat with anger issues who is stuck in the form of a wolf-buffalo man. What is not entertaining about all that?

Gaston is one of Disney’s greatest villains since he thinks he’s the hero. He’s a classic misogynist who thinks monsters are just creatures rather than realizing real monsters are in the hearts of men like him.

The Disney film has inspired many adaptations such as musicals, live-action remakes, video games, and even comic books. We are pleased to present this animated classic on our big screen.

So....
BE OUR GUEST!
(you knew it was coming).

An arrogant young prince (Robby Benson) and his castle's servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress, who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle (Paige O'Hara) enters the Beast's castle after he imprisons her father Maurice (Rex Everhart). With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts (Angela Lansbury), Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.

Alleghany Highlands Arts and Crafts Center
439 E. Ridgeway St.
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

A native of Roanoke, VA in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Mary Boxley Bullington is a mixed media artist working primarily in water media and collage. Characterized by dynamic color harmonies and fluid rhythms, Bullington’s large canvases are designed to give viewers so much to see that they must take it in gradually, over time. “I like telling stories. I taught literature for 21 years, so mine is a storied imagination.”, says Mary.

Her work has both a primitive and contemporary feel with stick figures symbolic of mankind and bold color often outlined in black. Mary’s energetic mixed media also has a strong narrative thread. “If someone asked me what quality is most fundamentaal to Mary Bullington’s paintings and collages, I would say energy–that life riots through [her] work’–Marly Youmans, Winner 2015 Ferrol Sams Award for Fiction.

This exhibit is in The Gallery at The Alleghany Highlands Arts & Craft Center, which is free and open to the public beginning August 12th and ending on September 2oth. The Center is open Monday – Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm & Sunday 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

BECOME A FILM CLUB MEMBER
Love watching free Movies at the Masonic? Wanna get more free stuff, too?
As a member of The Masonic Theatre Film Club, you can have both.

Film Club Members receive:
- A FREE soft drink and small popcorn at each movie you attend (a $5 savings per film!)
- A film ‘member filmbook.' Stamp your filmbook at each movie you attend at the Masonic and receive additional saving from the Masonic and area businesses.
- Access to our private Film Club Facebook page where we’ll share even more incentives and discounts.
- The ability to choose the movies we show! As a member of the Film Club, you and your fellow film club members will select a film for us to screen publicly once per quarter. Members will also select movies to be screened at private members-only events.
- Access to private film screenings at the Theatre chosen by and exclusively for Film Club Members and their invited guests.
