LexCUUPS Beltane Ritual
Saturday, April 29, Allen House, 7:00 PM
Beltane is an ancient Celtic festival, best known for the dancing around the Maypole, which marks the Cross Quarter Day, halfway between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. Beltane rituals often centered around fires and were practiced to ensure fertility and protect the people from harm by otherworldly spirits. Contact: Cailet, cailetllyntegid@hotmail.com.

Unlearn Fear + Hate Presentation
Sunday, April 30, Great Hall, 12:30-1:30 PM
The phrase “unlearn fear and hate” originated in the poem “Love Letta to De Worl’” by Frank X. Walker. Since then it has become the central theme of educational initiatives across Lexington. Artistic collaborators Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova have transformed the phrase into the equation “Unlearn Fear + Hate” and a call for close examination of what makes us fearful of others and how those fears are often expressed in anger, violence, racism, and xenophobia.
