APRIL

April 2
@ Guilford College, Founders Hall, East Gallery
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Mark Rifkin is a UNCG English Professor whose “research primarily focuses on Native American writing and politics from the 18th century onward, exploring ways that Indigenous peoples have negotiated US racial and imperial formations. More recently, he has been drawing on queer theory to rethink the role kinship systems have played in Native governance and to address the ways US imperialism can be thought of as a system of compulsory heterosexuality.” Come and join the discussion!

@ Guilford College, Multicultural Resource Center, King Hall

HEADS UP GUILFORD! WHAT? Film Screening OCCUPATION 101 WHEN? Wednesday April 3rd WHERE? King’s MRC Room WHY? Because America gives billions of dollars in annual “aid” to Israel! Which Israel uses to fund its illegal occupation and apartheid in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The US prides itself with its democratic government, and this means that the ultimate responsibility for a nation’s actions rests with its citizens.
