  • CIVIL RIGHTS
  • SOCIAL JUSTICE
  • GENDER STUDIES
  • GERMAN-JEWISH HISTORY
  • HISTORY OF NEW YORK CITY
  • URBAN PLANNING
  • REAL ESTATE - LAND USE LAW

    Whether you want to book a ONE MAN SHOW to explore difficult concepts with warmth and humor; or you need a Keynote Address for a large audience, or a guest speaker for a classroom setting, I may be available to satisfy your individual requirements.


    Whether part of an Inclusive Civil Rights program, or a stand-alone presentation of the LGBT American Movement, I can be a guest lecturer or speaker on the topic.

    My Talks are given with a personal touch from being a gay activist son of German Jewish Holocaust Survivors, who started the Gay Liberation Front at the University of Buffalo in 1970 and has been involved as an attorney in expanding our Civil Rights ever since.

    Several Talks have been developed for Kristallnacht or Yom HaShoah Programs or for Holocaust Studies courses, as Rick was brought up with the pre-war German Jewish culture, and is a dual German-American citizen since 2007.

    Henry Landman as US soldierHear about how his father was both an inmate in Dachau in November 1938, and then a U.S. Soldier who liberated Dachau.

    Having been involved in Urban Planning and Land Use Law since he was the Executive Director of Real Estate for NYC in the Koch Administration, as well as chairing many Community Board Committees, his Law and Planning Talks are from several perspectives.

    Learn History while walking in the geographical area where the subject took place.

    Or choose a geographical area just to explore the sights. These walking tours are informative as well as fun events. We will discuss actual History and not the stories you learned in Kindergarten.

    George Segal Statue in Christopher Street Park and LGBT History Tour LGBT HISTORY TOUR:


    This is the most popular Tour. You learn about the American LGBT Movement from someone who was there; all while walking in Greenwich Village where so much of it happened. There is a special Legal History Tour for lawyers, law students, as well as one for architects and urban planners.


    World Trade CenterOther popular Tours include:

    Discussing the World Trade Center from a former Community Board member who lives 1,000 feet away since 1979, learning about the Origins of American Zoning or Urban Renewal, learning the real story about life in New Amsterdam, exploring Battery Park City, the Brooklyn Bridge, or the City Hall Park area.

    The final experience is a German Jewish Tour where you see the sights, while hearing what it is like to be a Jewish German American.
