Documentary shines light on civil rights powerbroker Whitney Young

The civil rights and black power movements seem distant from Omaha until noting that Whitney Young Jr. cut his teeth as an advocate-organizer here and future activst Malcolm X was born here.

While Malcolm X moved with his family from Omaha as a child and only returned once as an adult, Young served as Urban League of Nebraska president from 1950 to 1953. Young faced racism first-hand growing up in the South and...

Lion King Roars Its Return to Orpheum

The creative unity of Disney’s The Lion King is greater than even its wonderful parts. Its greatness, more than any blockbuster musical before, requires no starring celebrities; its success was assured before casting.

Usually, I would rant about the absurdity of starting a drinking binge at 7 a.m. and wearing ridiculous leprechaun hats and plastic shamrock beads, but my health and image concerns aside, St. Patty’s Day is an occasion to be festive!
