"No No: A Dockumentary" - special panel discussion with director Jeffrey Radice and sports agent Tom Reich

Presented by Bergino Baseball Clubhouse


On an evening in June 1970, Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates. In all of baseball history, Dock is the only pitcher to ever claim he accomplished this feat while high on LSD. During his 12 years in the major leagues, Dock lived the expression “Black is Beautiful!” He wore curlers on the field. He stepped out of his Cadillac wearing the widest bell bottoms and the broadest collars. When he put on his uniform, he was one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 1970s. Dock was often at the forefront of controversy and was an outspoken leader of a new wave of civil rights in sports. After retiring, Dock became as outspoken about his career-spanning substance abuse issues as he had been about intolerance.  He spent his last decades utilizing his brash approach as a counselor, helping other addicts in their recoveries. On the eve of its theatrical release, we’ll view limited footage from "No No: A Dockumentary." Then join in our discussion/Q&A with director Jeffrey Radice and preeminent sports agent Tom Reich.

"World Politics: Cold and Hot Wars"

Presented by NYU Center for Global Affairs


Not since the 1970s have global tensions and conflict reached such intensity. The U.S. and Russia almost seem to be replaying the Cold War. Disputes between America and China have escalated. The Middle East is in turmoil, as internal and cross-border wars rage from Libya to the Persian Gulf. Will these conflicts grow? Does peace have a chance? How will America's world position be affected? Who will be the winners and the losers? Are we beginning a new era of global disorder? Join Ralph Buultjens, historian, author, recipient of the Toynbee Prize in Social Sciences, and longtime faculty member of the NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs (CGA), who will provide insight and a special preview of his popular course "World Politics." This lecture, part of the Center for Global Affairs 10th anniversary celebrations, will probe the critical global issues of the day and will offer a taste of the thought-provoking and significant topics covered in CGA classes.
