Cultural events for the week beginning Thursday, June 29

There is not as much for me to list this week with the holiday on the 4th.  Remember, all the Museums are open .  And here are a few things you might like to consider. I also hope you'll also have a chance to consider my rant at http://www.ronlehkersrants.blogspot.com
I've already put it on Facebook since I was so startled by the reality of racism that we whites do not understand in Dvorak's recent article in The Washington Post.
