Turning Hatred Into Hope: Perspectives of a Survivor of the Cultural Revolution

HSU Campus
As part of the Pan-Asian Pacific Islander Perspectives festival, A.P.A.S.A. presents "Turning Hatred Into Hope: Perspectives of a Survivor of the Cultural Revolution" by Betty Chinn.

Betty Chinn is a local heroine whose mission is to care for the county's homeless. Almost 365 days a year, Betty serves a meal and a hot cup of coffee to hundreds of people at the parking lot near the Humboldt County Welfare Office. She also distributes clothing, hygiene products and other needed items.

Betty lived through China's Cultural Revolution from 1966-1976. During that time, she was taken to labor camps and eventually ended up on the street. The experience is what motivated her to begin working with Humboldt County's homeless.

A reception will follow at the Humboldt County Chinese School.

Persons who wish to request disability-related accommodations, should contact the MultiCultural Center 707-826-3364 or mcc@humboldt.edu as soon as possible. Sponsored by HSU Diversity, Dept of Theatre, Film & Dance, Wells Fargo Bank, All Under Heaven.

Exploring Textiles: Weaving

HSU Recreation and Wellness Center
Center Activities and local artist Crystal Dobbs invite you to explore the art of weaving every Tuesday evening starting March 26th through Tuesday, May 7th! Learn to weave functional bands on an Inkle Loom; from warping the loom, weaving and finishing the fabric, to planning your own project. The information and techniques learned can be transferred to any style of loom, and students will also warp a 4 harness loom and weave samples on this more complex style of loom. Explore how the bands you weave can become decorative elements, or kept as-is for functional use. Handwoven garments plus different styles of looms from around the world will be shared.
7:00 pm-8:00 pm

Beginning Guitar Instruction

HSU Recreation and Wellness Center
This weekly group lesson will take place every Tuesday from March 26 - May 7. Instruction will go beyond the basics in guitar, offering participants the opportunity to learn and understand the language of music theory. The proven techniques from G.I.T. will assist you in learning to hear, to play, and to enjoy music with an understanding of how music theory works. Skills to be covered include: developing finger independence, scale steps, keys, notes on the fret board, and a working knowledge of the common language used in music. So whether you have some experience and need to develop confidence, or are a beginner ready for a positive learning experience in music, this class will be invaluable. Each individual will be evaluated the first night to determine the best level of instruction and will receive more information about the content of the class, including where to rent instruments if you do not own one.
7:00 pm-9:00 pm
