Monday, November 30 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm - Pizza and a Movie

We will be screening the documentary N. Scott Momaday: Words From A Bear.  You may know N. Scott Momaday's writings, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and poet, but you may not be familiar with Momaday himself. American Masters has resolved this issue. As Momaday talks about his life and his drive to create, his voice carries audiences across time and place.  Since we can't share a pizza together, students will receive a $10 Domino's e-gift card once they check in for the movie.

Movie: Not Just a Game

Thursday, December 3 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
To join please complete this form.

We've been told again and again that sports and politics don't mix, that games are just games and athletes should just "shut up and play", but according to Nation magazine sports editor, Dave Zirin, this notion is just flat-out wrong.

In NOT JUST A GAME, the powerful documentary based on his bestselling book The People's History of Sports in the United States, Zirin argues that far from providing merely escapist entertainment, American sports have long been at the center of some of the major political debates and struggles of our time. In a fascinating tour of the good, the bad, and the ugly of American sports culture, Zirin first traces how American sports have glamorized militarism, racism, sexism, and homophobia, then excavates a largely forgotten history of rebel athletes who stood up to power and fought for social justice beyond the field of play.
