SOUL TRAIN SCREENING—One of the most groundbreaking TV shows of the '70s was the weekly dance party Soul Train, which brought the "hippest trip in America" into honky living rooms across the nation. Soul Train Express is an uproariously fun compilation of dance lines, hot performances (from Stevie Wonder and more), and the "Dick Clark of Soul" himself, Don Cornelius. WSH

MEMOIR READING—The United States had a kick-ass, glass-ceiling-punching secretary of state a long time before Hillary Clinton flew the globe as America's top emissary. Madeleine Albright, born abroad, also has stories about Nazis. She's telling them tonight at a reading from her book Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948. DCT
