Just days before her film airs on PBS' America Reframed program, filmmaker Charlotte Glynn stops by Conversations LIVE to talk with host Cyrus Webb about the very personal story of Rachel and what led her to share it in the film RACHEL IS.
Charlotte Abotsi is a college student and poet hailing from Providence, Rhode Island. She was the Youth Grand Slam Champion at Providence Slam in 2013, taking her to her second Brave New Voices competition. She has competed in Oakland, CA and Chicago, IL. Charlotte has also been on the Providence Slam national adult team, competing in Boston, MA. In 2014, Charlotte won Providence Slam's Women of the World Poetry Slam qualifier taking her to Austin, TX to compete alongside 72 other poets. Charlotte works extensively with Providence Slam; specifically cultivating a safe space in the community and being the assistant coach for the youth program, while also being Providence Slam's booking coordinator. Other poets vaguely know who she is because she can never stop fangirling over all of them. French fries are the only thing she cares about.

As I often say in my presentations, it’s a DANGEROUS time to be a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan because there is just SO much merchandise out there. Pretty much whatever you want you can find it with either Laura Ingalls Wilder or Little House on it. You can even find unexpectedly odd things like a dogtag or a bobble-head doll. Where do you find all this stuff? It’s one of my post frequently asked questions at my programs so we’ll go over that too. So gather up your books, your stuffed Jacks, your Charlotte Dolls, and all your books, and listen up as we discuss how to organize your Laura Ingalls Wilder collection.

Topic: “Common Core - Education without Representation's Excerpt on Freedom to Fail”
"Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about Common Core. So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education." Common Core is a set of national academic standards for designated subjects, currently, Mathematics and English Language Arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade throughout their K-12 education. The standards were created to ensure all students graduate from high school with knowledge and skills to be college and career ready. This episode will focus on one perspective and its background and premises for the development of Common Core national standards.
The New Heights Educational Group Inc. supports literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services. Such services include assisting families in their selection of schools, organization of educational activities, and acquisition of materials. We promote a healthy learning environment and offer enrichment programs for families of preschool and school age children, including children with special needs.
A long time ago, I was a copywriter. I was at Scali McCabe Sloves, Chiat/Day, Stein Robaire Helm, Borders Perrin & Norrander, and BBDO, along with a couple of other companies that I thought were ad agencies because of the creative way they were named after people, but that turned out to be accounting firms or something. Somebody told me that you couldn't be a director unless you went to school for it, so I took a bunch of film classes at UCLA, NYU, and SVA, and even though some people might tell you otherwise, I managed to learn stuff. Then I started asking people to hire me to direct their commercials and some of them did.It's been about twenty years now, of me wearing a hat, wandering around on the set, and saying "cut" without getting into any trouble. I must be really good at it, too, because sometimes people ask me to do it over and over and not because I got it wrong and they want me to try again until I get it right. I even got a bunch of certificates and trophies and stuff -- including a really ugly hood ornament from the London International Advertising Awards. And not just for commercials. I sometimes get to direct films -- which are just like commercials only they're longer and there's more talking and sometimes naked people in them -- and documentaries, which are just like commercials only the people you point the camera at usually know even less about how to make the film go than I do.
