6. EVENT: Flint's Toxic Water Crisis: Devastating Results of a State Takeover (Sound Familiar?) - Wednesday, May 4

Wednesday, May 4
7:00pm - 8:30pm
MUB 140 (Ocean Campus)

Overriding local democracy, state governments are imposing “emergency managers” with extraordinary powers. Corporations push elected officials to use these state takeovers to deal with now-disposable workers they no longer need, and to privatize valuable public assets like water and prime real estate. The poisoning of Flint’s children is the logical result of a state takeover.

Retired Flint autoworker Claire McClinton will speak on fighting the strategy of toxic neglect that poisoned her city’s water. We’ll discuss how we can work in solidarity with the people of Flint and with Reverend Edward Pinkney, now imprisoned for opposing a corporate dictatorship in Benton Harbor, Michigan. We’ll discuss how to stop the Michigan Model of Toxic Neglect as it threatens to crush democracy in the Bay Area and elsewhere.

Co-sponsored by Save City College Coalition; African American Studies; AFT 2121; Black Student Union; the Diversity Collaborative; LGBT Studies Department; Mechxa de CCSF; the Solidarity Committee. Tour hosted by Women’s Eco

9. EVENT: Interactive Art Exhibit "Paper Bag Test, City College" at the Rosenberg Library - through May 5

Stop by the Rosenberg Library this week to participate in a temporary interactive artwork: The Paper Bag Test by IlaSahai Prouty, Professor of Art at Appalachian State University in North Carolina.
 
This temporary installation (until May 5) intersects with the Library's current exhibitions "Compositions: A San Francisco Filipino American Experience," and "I am San Francisco: Black Past Presence."
 
Artist IlaSahai Prouty invites people to write their stories and comments on a series of paper bags. Each bag has been coated with a color and printed with a word that describes skin tone. Words from a variety of sources reflect in the construction of race, for example: Porcelain, Olive, Brown Sugar, Yellow, Fair, and Ebony.
 
Prouty’s personal experiences as a person of mixed decent led her to explore how we construct racial identities in part through language. She has expanded the paper bag test, originally used to distinguish ‘light’ and ‘dark’ African Americans, into a piece that asks people “to think about how we use words to describe, imply and evaluate race, to ask people to reflect on how they see their own skin tone and the skin tones of others, and to present race as a social, as opposed to scientific, construction.”
 
“Paper Bag Test, City College”, an interactive work by IlaSahai Prouty of North Carolina, will be at the Louise & Claude Rosenberg, Jr. Library on the main campus of City College of San Francisco from Thursday, April 28th through May 5th, 2016
