Block 7.
If you never had the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument in school, here’s your chance. In just one block, you will perform in a recital on three different instruments as a soloist or as part of an ensemble. You will also learn how to teach these instruments to beginners while exploring some of the ways we learn and how we benefit from the study of music. Benefits include understanding different symbols for communicating ideas, learning to overcome frustration, and collaborating with others for learning and performing, and thinking creatively.
This class is required by the Colorado Department of Education to receive music teacher certification, but you can also take this class just because you want to.

NEW COURSE OFFERING–GR220: Afro-Culture as Knowledge Culture: Black Knowledge Production in Germany

Please be aware of this new course being offered in block 6 by Visiting Scholar, Artist, and Activist Dr. Natasha Kelly. “This course will place the past, present, and future of Black Germans in a global context through studying the life and works of Black scholars and activists W.E.B. Du Bois, Audre Lorde, and May Ayim. Our class will interrogate current political debates about race and the “racial turn” in Germany and challenge the supposedly objective nature of Eurocentric knowledge production. Drawing on narratives of colonial de_perception, we will critically examine the persistence of coloniality in German society and media. Furthermore, we will consider the role that coloniality has played in preventing the incorporation of Black knowledge into the scholarly archive and rendering a Black perspective on the world impossible.”

Come to the WRC to discuss and celebrate sobriety at CC! There are many people on campus who choose not to use substances or take good care to moderate their use. We want to recognize you, the sober-conscious members of our community, with a celebratory catered dinner and discussion of your personal experiences at CC and what the institution can do to better support you. Whether you are sober, in recovery, curious about sobriety, or just want to show your support, come join us for the night!

This celebration is open to all students, staff, and faculty interested in supporting sobriety on campus.
