While the two bands have a similar makeup in terms of the size of the group and the instruments, they each take a very different approach to the music that they will play on the very same stage. While the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble is known for playing newer music, the approach of ensemble director Dave Rivello is a rather tra

Theatrical production in the Wash, Pomona College
Student actors perform on a makeshift stage with a white canopy in Blanchard Park on Wash Day, 1901. A tent set off to one side likely serves as a dressing room. A small removable placard next to the tent indicates a scene location. On the left side of the stage, a group of actors in dark robes and hats are gathered around a man in tights seated on a dais. In the center, a woman dressed all in white holds a basket. Behind her, a group of similarly attired actors are seated on the ground.

In the predominately white Southern university where I teach, African American students make up 26% of the incoming freshman population, reflecting the racial demographics of the state. Although the visible majority, white students benefit from racial privilege that seems invisible, at least to them. I am i
