Bree Newsome: “Tearing Hatred from the Sky”

Sottile Theatre

February 22, 2016

7:00 pm
Free and Open to the Public

 

Program Description

As Bree Newsome watched the funeral of Rev. Clementa Pinkney, one of 9 people slaughtered in the name of white supremacy at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, SC, she recognized the message being communicated clearly by the US flag and the SC state flag at half-mast while the Confederate flag remained fully furled. Refusing to accept the premise of this image – that white supremacy is supreme, untouchable and invincible – she scaled the 30ft flagpole in front of the SC statehouse and removed the “stars and bars” declaring, “This flag comes down today!”

Stern Nite life is hosting an event this Friday.

 

The event is a theater 99 trip on Feb. 24th. It is free but space is limited. We will be taking 50 people max. There will be a sign-up sheet at the stern front desk. We will be meeting at the stern center at 7:30 pm and walking over. The show starts at 8 pm.

The purpose of the SDIC is to promote and celebrate diversity as a strength and not a weakness; to educate and promote awareness at the College of Charleston about diversity issues; to explore diversity issues on campus and in surrounding areas; to provide a support as a point of contact, for fellow students who feel marginalized, and to have an overall positive impact regarding diversity on our campus. Our support will come in through listening, sharing, educating, and encouraging.

We are students helping students. These are our goals, and as members of the Student Diversity and Inclusion Council we affirm that we will follow these guidelines to the best of our ability.

Ideally, we would love to have at least one representative from each student organization on the council, however all are welcome to join. SDIC would love to collaborate and foster a sustainable relationship with your organization and others!

Program Description

As Bree Newsome watched the funeral of Rev. Clementa Pinkney, one of 9 people slaughtered in the name of white supremacy at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, SC, she recognized the message being communicated clearly by the US flag and the SC state flag at half-mast while the Confederate flag remained fully furled. Refusing to accept the premise of this image – that white supremacy is supreme, untouchable and invincible – she scaled the 30ft flagpole in front of the SC statehouse and removed the “stars and bars” declaring, “This flag comes down today!”

Message from CofC Student Health Services regarding flu season 2017

The following information has been sent to students regarding flu season.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Influenza cases on campus continue to stream through the doors of Student Health Services. The staff here is dedicated to taking care of every patient who arrives at our doorstep and we especially want to make sure those that are acutely ill are seen as soon as possible.

 

Please call us early in the day if you are ill and need to be seen. If you have an appointment that you no longer need, please be sure to call or go online and cancel. If you do not currently have an immediate need, (e.g. birth control refill, well woman exam) please let us know if we can call in a month’s refill for you or delay your visit two weeks.

 

The flu vaccine appears to be quite effective at preventing this year’s strain of the flu. If you have insurance you can go to a nearby pharmacy to get the shot, or make a nurse visit at SHS if you do not have insurance and wish to get your vaccine for no cost.

 

You can also take measures to avoid illness, including:

 

  1. Avoid close contact.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

  1. Stay home when you are sick.

If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.

  1. Cover your mouth and nose.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

  1. Clean your hands.

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

  1. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

  1. Practice other good health habits.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

(Source: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm)

 

This period of time is the called the flu season for a reason, it will not last forever. But, for now if you can help Student Health Services see as many sick patients as need to be seen please be understanding, cancel your unneeded appointments and call us early in the day if you are ill and need an appointment.

 

Stay well!

The Langston Hughes Project “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz”

Sottile Theatre

February 1, 2016

7:00 pm
Free and Open to the Public

 

The Langston Hughes Project is a multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes’s kaleidoscopic jazz poem suite, which features the Ron McCurdy Quartet.  Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz is Hughes’s homage in verse, music to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s.  It is a twelve-part epic poem which Hughes scored with musical cues drawn from blues and Dixieland, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop and progressive jazz, Latin “cha cha” and Afro-Cuban mambo music, German lieder, Jewish liturgy, West Indian calypso, and African drumming — a creative masterwork left unperformed at his death.
