From Woodstock to the Supreme Court

Terry Gilbert has been an activist and an attorney through fifty years of trying times. From aiding Native Americans at Wounded Knee when he was fresh out of law school, to filing one of the earliest cases in the Chief Wahoo controversy, to fighting to clear the name of Dr. Sam Sheppard.

His story is about the criminalization of dissent, police misconduct, wrongful imprisonment and other important struggles in the courts and on the streets. Gilbert’s cases have touched on the best and worst of America. His memoir is a very personal story of a blue collar attorney taking on rogue cops, systemic racism and a broken justice system.

Gilbert shares his half-century of experience in the legal system to groups of any size who are interested in the causes of social justice and the history of the struggle for equity for all Americans. Programs can include co-author Carlo Wolff (a longtime Cleveland journalist) and can be tailored to specific subjects of interest to your audience.

Farewell, Alex

When Act 3 producer Alex Vicarel called a meeting for the following morning, we were mentally prepared. Her announcement? She would leave Act 3 to join her boyfriend (also Alex!) in Seattle as they begin a new life chapter. A position at Microsoft for one talented Alex, a host of new geographic and career opportunities for Act 3 Alum Alex. Since Covid restrictions caused “our” Alex to miss out on her 2020 college graduation from John Carroll University, we figured a joint graduation ceremony was called for. Presti’s in Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood provided the stage, Act 3’s creative director Ron Hill provided the illustrated bon voyage card and the graduation mortar board.
To follow is a sweet note from a talented, sweet lady who taught us much with her poise, grace, and wry humor.
