Why have there been few position of power and leadership for Black women in the Obama administration? Why was there an outpouring of protests preceding President Obama&rsquo;s nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court? What happened to Desiree Rogers? What happened to Shirley Sherrod? Why was the Obama Administration&rsquo;s support for both women either withheld or ill-informed?<br /><br />Discuss these questions and more with Duchess Harris, Associate Professor &amp; Chair of American Studies at Macalaster College, when she presents "Black Feminist Politics in the Age of Obama."</p> Understanding Nonviolent Power: Civil Resistance as a Force for Rights, Freedom, and Justice in the 21st Century Thu, 15 Nov 2012 15:50:01 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-03-understanding-nonviolent-power-civil-resistance-as-a-force-for-rights-freedom-and-justice-in-the-21st-century https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-03-understanding-nonviolent-power-civil-resistance-as-a-force-for-rights-freedom-and-justice-in-the-21st-century <p><em>Monday, December 3, 2012 7:00 PM</em></p><p>Nonviolent civil resistance movements around the world are a growing force in shaping geopolitics.&nbsp; From the Arab Spring, to movements over the last two decades in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, and North America, the world has witnessed how ordinary people have used nonviolent tactics -- such as strikes, boycotts, mass demonstrations, and other actions -- to achieve rights, freedom, and justice.&nbsp; Yet, this critical phenomenon is often overlooked or misunderstood by external observers.&nbsp; It defies conventional wisdom that unarmed people mobilizing by the thousands or millions can defeat armed, wealthy, and organized adversaries who seem to have all the advantages.&nbsp; This presentation will focus on why civil resistance works, what its long-term record and outcomes are, and how it will increasingly affect social, economic, and political change</p> <p><a href="http://www.hardymerriman.com" target="_blank">Hardy Merriman</a> is a senior advisor to the <a href="http://www.nonviolent-conflict.org" target="_blank">International Center on Nonviolent Conflict.&nbsp;</a>&nbsp;For the last decade, he has worked with scholars and practitioners from around the world to research and educate people about the power of nonviolent civil resistance.&nbsp; He has edited works such as "Waging Nonviolent Struggle"&nbsp;by Gene Sharp and co-authored "A Guide to Effective Nonviolent Struggle," a training curriculum for activists.</p> Vanity Fair’s West Coast Editor Krista Smith: It’s not Journalism 101 Anymore Fri, 23 Jan 2015 10:15:08 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-03-19-vanity-fair-s-west-coast-editor-krista-smith-it-s-not-journalism-101-anymore https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-03-19-vanity-fair-s-west-coast-editor-krista-smith-it-s-not-journalism-101-anymore <p><em>Monday, December 3, 2012 7:00 PM</em></p><p class="MsoNormal"><strong>It's not Journalism 101 Anymore:&nbsp;</strong>Vanity Fair's West Coast Editor Krista Smith, a Colorado College graduate, tells us how to stay ahead of the curve in this changing landscape of journalism.&nbsp;She is introduced by Natalie Rahhal, editor of <em>The Leviathan.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> Expedition Down the Colorado: A Summer Exploring the Water Issues of the Southwest’s Great River Tue, 16 Jun 2015 12:03:43 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-19-expedition-down-the-colorado-a-summer-exploring-the-water-issues-of-the-southwest-s-great-river https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-04-19-expedition-down-the-colorado-a-summer-exploring-the-water-issues-of-the-southwest-s-great-river <p><em>Tuesday, December 4, 2012 7:30 PM</em></p><p class="MsoNormal">Three Colorado College graduates and State of the Rockies Project expedition members will speak about their "Down the Colorado" expedition from this past summer. The three explorers, Zak Podmore &rsquo;11, Will Stauffer-Norris &rsquo;11, and David Spiegel &rsquo;12 will recap their journey on the Colorado River from Rocky Mountain National Park to Lake Mead through a multimedia presentation detailing their experiences. Their journey ran from mid-June to early September 2012 and included some of the best whitewater in the country, a trip across Lake Powell on a solar powered raft, and daily water quality tests to monitor the river. The expedition&rsquo;s goal was to engage the river&rsquo;s stakeholders throughout the watershed while also raising awareness of water issues by educating the general public. Through dozens of interviews and hours of footage, the team has produced a film covering their work from the summer. Along with the film, the expedition members will show some of their photographs from this summer and speak about their experiences floating on the mighty Colorado for more than two months.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Continuing on the successes of last year&rsquo;s Source-to-Sea journey by Will and Zak from the headwaters of the Green River to the Sea of Cortez, this expedition and film seek to further the State of the Rockies Project&rsquo;s goal of informing and engaging the citizens of the Rocky Mountain Region so that they might better shape the future of this beautiful, yet fragile, region.
