  • ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)
    The documentary shows the destruction and atrocities of the civil war through a combination of eye-witness accounts shot on mobile phones and posted to the internet, and footage shot during the siege of Homs. It captures the utter hopelessness of what's going on in the world today, with a touch of a slim hope that cinema can help.
  • ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)
    Sarah Sally Merriams religious conversion in 1813 led to her transformation from the daughter of a New England merchant farmer to the wife and partner of Baptist minister and Wake Forest founder Samuel Wait. In the journal she kept during their three-year courtship, Sally agonized about the state of her salvation and spiritual calling through the lens of her potential marriage to Samuel. Sallys writings provide a road map to her decision-making process, and reveal the complex dynamics of an evangelical courtship during the Second Great Awakening. Although she played an important role in the foundation of Wake Forest, Sally Waits story has, until now, remained largely untold. Mary Tribble (82) is Senior Advisor for Engagement Strategies in the Wake Forest University Alumni Office. She is the great-great-great-great-great granddaughter of Samuel Wait, and the great niece of former college president Harold Tribble.
