It was in Vegas where an impromptu jam session between Rasar (MC), Jason (Keys), Sean (Guitar), Nick (Bass), and Jeremy (Drums) would eventually lead to being recognized as one of the “10 Acts To Watch in 2016” by Las Vegas Weekly, a prominent national feature in “AFROPUNK” as well as being named “Best Band” by Vegas Seven Magazine.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Hidden Figures

As America stood on the brink of a Second World War, the push for aeronautical advancement grew ever greater, spurring an insatiable demand for mathematicians. Women were the solution. Ushered into the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in 1935 to shoulder the burden of number crunching, they acted as human computers, freeing the engineers of hand calculations in the decades before the digital age. Sharp and successful, the female population at Langley skyrocketed.

Many of these “computers” are finally getting their due, but conspicuously missing from this story of female achievement are the efforts contributed by courageous, African-American women. Called the West Computers, after the area to which they were relegated, they helped blaze a trail for mathematicians and engineers of all races and genders to follow. Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Sara Kassis, Adjunct Professor of Engineering

Science and the Director for Women In Tech.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Lion

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.

Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Don Romesburg, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies.
