THIS WEEK'S HEADLINES
In an exclusive interview with ATM, the actor and playwright reflects on mastering one of literature and film's best-known characters through experience, preparation and his Midwestern roots
Eight times a week, actor and playwright Jeff Daniels steps onto a Broadway stage to portray one of America’s most beloved patriarchs – Atticus Finch – in Aaron Sorkin’s acclaimed Broadway retelling of To Kill a Mockingbird. In an exclusive interview for the June/July issue of AARP the Magazine (ATM), Daniels discusses landing the job, constructing his own version of the iconic character for the 21st century and utilizing his years of experience to perfect the Tony-nominated role.
From the goofy Harry Dunne in Dumb and Dumber to the arrogant anchor Will McAvoy in The Newsroom to the spineless husband Flap Horton in Terms of Endearment, Daniels has always put his heart and soul into every character he has portrayed. The 64-year-old heavily relied on his years of experience to prepare for the role of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, memorizing the entire script by the first rehearsal, studying the history of Southern towns and reading biographies of Harper Lee.
His dedication to the job and connection to Atticus Finch’s character helped bring the role to life. Daniels’ version of the character reflects similarities to his father – “My dad was very much an Atticus, in that there was a right way to do something and there were all the other ways. He lived like that,” he states.
While Daniels felt a natural connection to the character, he was tasked with creating a version of Atticus that was respectful of Gregory Peck’s iconic movie portrayal, yet breathed new life and relevance into the role.
Daniels’ careful preparation proved beneficial in the end. On the freedom his preparation provided,…

Regimental flag of the 127th United States Colored Troops purchased for $196,800 at auction, largest amount ever paid by Atlanta History Center for a single historic artifactBy Ritz Herald /
The Atlanta History Center announced today its acquisition of a rare artifact key to the story of the Civil War, the regimental flag of the 127th United States Colored Troops (USCT). The flag is one of fewer than 25 known examples carried by African American regiments during the war.
Given the History Center’s ongoing mission of increasing inclusivity, the organization’s leadership viewed the chance to acquire the flag of an African American regiment as an important opportunity to expand its narrative about the often-forgotten service of the USCT during the Civil War. The History Center rarely makes major purchases for its collections, which have grown organically over nine decades mainly through donations of artifacts. However, on Thursday, June 13, 2019, the History Center purchased the flag for $196,800 ($160,000 hammer price, plus buyer’s premium), the most money the History Center has ever paid for a single artifact.
“We want to tell the entire story of the Civil War and how it impacts our country,” Atlanta History Center President and CEO Sheffield Hale said. “This flag is worth it in exhibit value alone. It’s one of those things that doesn’t need words to tell you what it is and what it represents.”
Measuring 72 by 55 inches, the silk banner depicts a black soldier carrying a rifle and bidding farewell to Columbia, the mythical goddess of liberty. A motto above the soldier reads “WE WILL PROVE OURSELVES MEN.” On the flag’s reverse side an American bald eagle bears a ribbon…
Companies to Focus on Television-based Care for Elders, Supported by 2020 Medicare Advantage Reimbursement Rule
American Well®, a leading U.S. telehealth company, today announced it is working with Cisco Systems to extend care delivery from hospitals and health systems into the home. For this initiative, the companies will leverage their respective expertise in healthcare infrastructure and collaboration technology, to transform the telehealth options currently available to elder patients. Initial plans include converting in-home television sets into American Well patient CarePoints for broad based, telehealth care delivery.
“Telehealth is quickly becoming an effective way for Americans to get access to urgent care. While this revolution continues, a new breed of telehealth is emerging. This one will go the other way, empowering doctors and nurses to use technology to knock on our door and visit us at home regularly. This will allow healthcare that previously warranted hospital admission or facility stay to take place in the home, where so many of us prefer to be. Importantly, telehealth will allow us, and our elders, to expect a longer, safer and more graceful aging, in our homes,” said Roy Schoenberg, MD, MPH, CEO at American Well. “A new age is upon us, and we couldn’t be more excited to lay its cornerstone today with Cisco.”
The companies will focus initial collaborative efforts on transforming in-home television sets into a modality for telehealth to benefit and advance elder care. This focus comes on the heels of the Centers for Medicare &…
