Black and WhiteThis is the second in a two-course sequence that will conclude our two year study of “White Privilege and its Consequences for Being Black in White America.”  It’s not too late to join this course.  We will study two topics simultaneously: ongoing racism and white privilege.  I have put together a course packet that includes readings on both topics for each week.  I will email the readings for the first week as you register.  The course packet, with the readings for both quarters, will be available for purchase beginning the first week of class.  It should cost no more than $15.

Writing to Discover
Bev Osband
10:45-12:15
Room 1-J

“Writing to Discover “ sometimes takes us places we think we know, only to  discover things we didn’t know. It is writing that comes out of reflecting on experiences, inner and outer, and about relating with others, ourselves and the universe. Some of us write prose: memoir, fiction or non-fiction; some write poetry. Sometimes we write and don’t know why. The result is as unique as your fingerprint.

In class we will free write from prompts – and in the process, we will discover things that we didn’t know we knew.

Ernest Gaines: A Lesson Before Dying 
Michael Shurgot
11:00-12:00
Room B2

Gaines’s novel is set in a small town in Louisiana in 1948. A Young black man, Jefferson, is falsely accused of having killed a man in a robbery, and he is labeled a “hog” in the rigged trial by the prosecutor. Grant Wiggins, an ex-pat who returns to the community to teach, struggles with his attempt to convince Jefferson of his manhood before his execution, and also forges an unexpected relationship with Paul, a deputy sheriff. Gaines brings to this novel the same rich sense of place and deep understanding of the human psyche that marks all of his fiction. A Lesson Before Dying won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction in 1993.

But capturing often-distant nature travel subjects or wildlife really demands a good ZOOM (at least 8x to 25x) and a good digital viewfinder, as recommended on PhotoSeek.com.

Bring your fully-charged camera to class, and learn how to better pre-visualize, expose, focus, compose, make panoramas, edit color tones, and share images. We’ll also exchange tips about worldwide eco travel destinations.
