2013 Distinguished Faculty Lecture: Lisa Bickmore

Wednesday, April 3, 2013
Noon-1:00 PM
Taylorsville Redwood Campus
Student Center, Oak Room 
Sponsored by Faculty Services

A discussion exploring why “narratives are good to think with” – how understanding more about story can help us understand argument and persuasion, and the usefulness, therefore, in not only being able to understand how stories work, but of being able to shape, tell, and effectively transact our own stories in ways that allow us to participate more fully in our communities.

Death of a Salesman

SLCC Celebrates Black History Month: Carl Maxie Brashear & David N. Dinkins

Carl Maxie Brashear was the first African-American to become a U.S. Navy Master Diver. Born in Tonieville, Kentucky, the sixth of eight children to sharecroppers McDonald and Gonzella, Brashear attended Sonora Grade School before enlisting in the U.S. Navy. He graduated from the U.S. Navy Diving & Salvage School in 1954, becoming the first African-American to attend and graduate from the Diving & Salvage School.

Brashear first did work as a diver retrieving approximately 16,000 rounds of ammunition. On his first tour of shore duty in Quonset Point, Rhode Island his duties included salvaging airplanes and recovering dead bodies.
Early in his career, Brashear’s duties included escorting U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the presidential ship Barbara Ann.

In 1966, Brashear was involved in the accident that has come to be known as the Palomares incident. A B28 nuclear bomb was lost off the coast of Palomares, Spain when two U.S. Air Force aircraft collided during aerial refueli…

Library Black History Month Display 2013

The Month of February is also known as Black History Month. In recognition, the library has put together a nonfiction book/DVD display featuring different people and events that have influenced American history. This collection ranges from Fredrick Douglass to Barack Obama and can be located next to the Library Café at the Redwood campus.

While the library display features nonfiction, many talented African American authors have put their own stamp on the American culture through their works of literature.  Whether it is a mystery or gritty realist novel, these classics are worth at least a checkout from the library. Check out some of the titles listed below to honor not only the historical, but also the cultural influence of African Americans.
A Few Classic Novels by African Americans ·       Roots by Alex Haley ·       Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston ·       Beloved by Toni Morrison ·       The Color Purple by Alice Walker ·       The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison …

Slack Key Guitarist Makana to Perform at Salt Lake Community College

Makana will perform at Salt Lake Community College on Tuesday, February 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Grand Theatre. Makana is a composer, singer, and pioneer of the ‘slack rock’ guitar style.

Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, Makana began singing at the age of seven and at nine, took up the ‘ukulele.

Makana’s music integrates elements of folk, rock, ethnic, classical, bluegrass, jazz, traditional, ambient, electronic and Hawaiian slack key.

SLCC Celebrates Black History Month: The Tuskegee Airmen

The Tuskegee Airmen is the name given to the African-American pilots who fought in the United States’ armed forces in World War II. They comprised the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group of the United States Army Air Corps—a predecessor to the United States Army Air Forces.
The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States armed forces.
The 477th Bombardment Group trained with North American B-25 Mitchell bombers. The 99th Pursuit Squadron was the first African-American flying squadron, and the first to deploy overseas. The 332nd Fighter Group, which originally included the 100th, 301st, and 302nd Fighter Squadrons, deployed to Italy in 1944. That same year, the 332nd Fighter Group began flying bomber escort missions, and the 99th Fighter Squadron was assigned to the 332nd Fighter Group.
In all, 992 pilots were trained in Tuskegee from 1941 to 1946. 450 of these airmen were deployed overseas; 150 died serving their country. The Tus…

SLCC Joins National Program to Train Baby Boomers for Jobs

Salt Lake Community College was recently chosen to join the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers for new jobs in healthcare, education and social services. The program is sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).

The College will assist adults age 50 and over in completing degrees or certificates in high-demand occupations that give back to the community. With many adults age 50 and over out of work or seeking to transition to a new career, the program offers skill updates and career makeovers. Salt Lake Community College will prepare older adults for careers such as pharmacy or ultrasound technicians and medical terminology specialists.   In addition, the College’s Transition to Teaching program is offered in partnership with the State Office of Education to prepare students as elementary and secondary educators.

“The Plus 50 Encore Completion Program represents a meaningful, national validation of the work the Coll…
