Dr. Melina Abdullah will be the first speaker in the Africana Intellectual Project’s Social Justice series which is a component of the Black Art(s): Radical Potentialities Conversations. With a PhD in Political Science from the University of Southern California, Dr. Abdullah is a recognized expert on race, gender, class, and social movements, and she is among the original group of organizers that convened to form Black Lives Matter.

The ambition of the Social Justice series is to broaden the traditional definition of “art,” and to use that expanded territory to examine the potential for various practices to serve as components of a project of radical political, social, and cultural change and exchange. Prof Abdullah is an ideal interlocutor for this work in that we will be in a position to consider protest as a radical “art” practice.

The event will be held at 7:30pm on Monday, April 8 in the Celeste Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

Many students know that they should negotiate their salary before accepting a job. But did you know that you can also negotiate your benefits?

Join Executive-in Residence Kyle Samuel ’92, President of M&T Insurance Agency and Senior Vice President of M&T Bank, for “A CC Student’s Guide to Negotiating Total Compensation”. Kyle will discuss all of the soft benefits that companies offer their employees – from health insurance and paid vacation days to student loan repayment – and how you can feel empowered to lobby for the benefits you want.

RSVP on Handshake! Thursday, April 4, 12:15pm in Gates Common Room. Lunch provided.

Don’t know what you want to do with your life? Great. Neither does Stratton Series speaker and inventor Michael White (but he’s “successful” by many accounts).

While it’s okay to have no idea, there are a few things you can do right now to get just a little bit closer to what you’re in it for. Join the Career Center for this workshop, designed to give CC students practical advice on figuring out their next steps, and actions to take to get things rolling in this thing called life.

When? Tuesday, April 9, 12:15pm
Where?
McHugh Commons (above The Preserve)
RSVP for lunch!
