Skype interview with Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal

The Adams State University Common Reading Experience Committee has arranged a Skype interview with Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal at 7 p.m. Monday, March 2, in McDaniel Hall room 101. The event is free and open to the public. Note – the time has been changed from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A democrat, Chappelle-Nadal represents District 14, which includes Ferguson, Missouri. Since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson on August 9, 2014, Chappelle-Nadal has led her constituents in peaceful demonstrations and has been outspoken against institutional racism in the St. Louis police force and broader Missouri state government. Much of her energy has been devoted to mobilizing the young citizen of Ferguson, calling them to action for positive change. The Senator has proposed legislation to examine policies related to deadly police force following multiple officer-involved deaths of African-American citizens.

Co-sponsors of the event include the Adams State Student Life & Leadership Multicultural Center, Black Student Union, CIELO, English, Theatre, and Communications Department, and the History, Anthropology, Philosophy, Political Science, and Spanish Department.

The event is in conjunction with the Adams State 2014-2015 common reading selection, The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates.

Reception will be held at ASU C.A.S.A. Center following. Refreshments will be provided

Curt Howell kicks off the Nielsen Library’s “Earth, Water, and Sky” series this Wednesday @6 pm

Earth, Water, and Sky:
Conversations on the Great Outdoors — San Luis Valley and Beyond

Wed, Mar 4: Curt Howell: Earth, Water, and Sky: A Call and Response

What is it about John Muir’s words “The mountains are calling and I must go . . .” that for some, is a summons, awakening powerful emotions and often a desire for solitude? Do we understand why and to what purpose he penned these words? Included in this eight week series of talks is a love story, a recounting of a young man’s inward and outward pilgrimage, insight into the art and zen of fly fishing, and stories of human interaction with and within the San Luis Valley, just to name a few. Curt Howell’s A Call and Response will point to a subtle theme connecting each. Through these talks, conversations, and presentations we are invited to stand with others in relation to something unique and wholly other, yet approachable. As each person shares, we are invited to share in their lived reality. And when we respond to the call, we live life.

All “Earth, Water, and Sky” events are from 6-7:30 pm, take place in the library’s second floor lounge, and are free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.
