WCRS Thanksgiving Filler - "The Twilight of Thanksgiving" (William D. Kelley)

1:55 minutes (1.76 MB)

The Twilight of Thanksgiving (William D. Kelley)

The day has lengthened into eve,
And over all the meadows
The Twilight's silent shuttles weave
Their sombre web of shadows,
With northern lights the cloudless skies
Are faintly phosphorescent,
And just above you wooded rise
The new moon shows her crescent

Before the evening lams are lit,
While day and night commingle,
The sire and matron come and sit
Beside the cozy ingle;
And softly speak of the delight
Within their bosoms swelling,
Because beneath their roof to-night
Their dear ones all are dwelling

And when around the cheerful blaze
The young folks take their places,
What blissful dreams of other days
Light up their aged faces!
The past returns with all its joys,
And they again are living
The years in which, as girls and boys,
Their children kept Thanksgiving

The stalwart son recalls the time
When, urged to the endeavor,
He tried the well-greased pole to climb,
And failed of fame forever.
The daughter tells of her emprise
When, as a new beginner,
She helped her mother make the pies
For the Thanksgiving dinner.

And thus with laugh and jest and song,
And render recollections,
Love speeds the happy hours along,
And fosters fond affections;
While Fance, listening to the mirth,
And dreaming pleasant fictions,
Imagines through the winds on earth
That heaven breathes benedictions.

Selection (John Greenleaf Whittier)

0:45 minutes (709.43 KB)

(John Greenleaf Whittier)
Heap high the farmer's wintry hoard!
Heap high the golden corn!
No richer gift has Autumn poured
From out her lavish horn.

Let other lands exulting glean
The apple from the pine,
The orange from its glossy green,
The cluster from the vine.

But let the good old corn adorn,
The hills our fathers trod;
Still let us for His golden gorn,
Send up our thanks to God.

Thursday June 25th at St. Philip Episcopal Church 166 Woodland Avenue in Columbus, Ohio

The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. Screening is at 6:30 p.m. Reception is at 7:30 p.m.

The film starts with the Nelson family, who settled the area in the early 1800s. It goes on to feature artists such as Emerson Burkhart, Billy Ireland and Omar Shaheed. The film talks about athletes such as the Nesser family who were instrumental in the formation of the NFL, famed Buckeye football star Chic Harley and Bill Willis who broke the color barrier in college and professional football.

The documentary explains the transformation of the neighborhood to an important African-American community in the 1950s, featuring such stories of the history of the Eldon & Elsie Ward Family YMCA and the Isabelle Ridgway Care Center all the way to present day with residents who enjoy living in a more culturally diverse neighborhood.

Scott Spears and Christina Paolucci did the majority of the production with some assistance from other artists completing the work.
