The Cross Cultural Centers and Special Collections and Archives at the University Library are looking for student submissions that describe your contribution to the history of Cal State LA, perhaps your involvement on campus, the friendships you’ve made, or your academic achievements have left a mark. Those who are selected will be part of an end of the year exhibit at Cal State LA. For more information, visit the Cross Cultural Centers’ front desk to pick up an application.
Leave campus to explore thematically linked exhibitions organized under Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Trip will be facilitated by Professor Leda Ramos (CLS 4900 – Chicanx Latinx Social Art History). Three dates available; Sept. 29, Oct. 6, Oct. 27 (see calendar & date entries for each trip destination). The Chicanx/Latinx Student Resource Center will host lunch and transportation. Hold your spot -- $10 for each trip -- at the U-SU Room 306. Tickets go on sale Sept. 5.
In these times, it’s important to #GetWoke and #StayWoke about social justice. Join the Cross Cultural Centers, along with campus and community partners committed to equity for marginalized and minoritized communities, to learn about resources and ways we can move “Onward Together” to build the spaces and future we want to see.
Dr. Derald Wing Sue, Teachers College Columbia University, is the scholar who first coined the term “microaggressions.” In this pre-recorded video presentation, Dr. Sue discusses recent work, Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence: Understanding and Facilitating Difficult Dialogues on Race, that challenges the belief talking about race is impolite, or that “colorblindness” is the preferred approach to addressing institutional and systemic racism.
