The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning

Here is a compiled list of what's happening around you this week, from workshops in service learning to film screenings of the newest social justice film, we have it here.

 

1) 50 Years after the Detroit Rebellion: Lessons from Grace Lee Boggs

Please join us next Wednesday, September 13th for lunch and discussion at the Ginsberg Center, as we welcome Scott Kurashige. Dr. Kurashige is professor of American & Ethnic Studies at the University of Washington, and author of the recently released The Fifty Year Rebellion: How the U.S. Political Crisis Began in Detroit.
 

2) "Selma" film screening and discussion

On September 12th at 4pm the Institute for the Humanities, Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, and the English Language Institute are presenting a free screening of the critically acclaimed film "Selma," based on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches led by James Bevel, Hosea Williams, Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis. A short introduction to the film and its historical context will precede the screening at 4:10pm, and a discussion with graduate students will follow at 6:30pm. 

 

3) All About the ADA and Accommodations!

If you are providing a service, it is important to know the best ways to communicate with and about individuals who may have disabilities. This session will help you to understand how to best serve individuals with disabilities, and will also give you some etiquette pointers that you can use in your everyday life.

Join LSA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on September 13th at 1pm for this informative opportunity.
