Join the Cross-Cultural Center for the continuation of the White Identity and Allyship series this Thursday, March 16th, at 2:00pm. The purpose of this series is to learn, reflect, and discuss social justice ideology. Each week a different topic will be introduced and a discussion will be led by a staff or faculty ally on campus. The focus of this session will be on defining race and ethnicity, understanding how White identity carries privilege and power within the discussion of race and ethnicity, and learning ways to be an ally in moments of racism.

Vietnamese American Society for Creative Arts and Music
On Life depicts elements that most of us have experienced—sadness, happiness, reminiscence, loneliness and celebration. It could be more so for Vietnamese Americans, who face challenges of multiculturalism and dualism and are torn by traditions and times. On Life is narrated through the contemporary musical language of Cung Tiên, Tôn Thât Tiêt, and scenes from the opera The Tale of Lady Thi Kính by P.Q. Phan.
