10:30 AM Book Signing: Not For You Culinary Historians of San Diego will present Not For You, featuring Nandita Godbole, in the Neil Morgan Auditorium of the San Diego Central Library. The author will explore what happens to the cuisines of people who migrate into a new culture; and how their comfort foods evolve over time.

Nandita Godbole is an Atlanta-based cookbook author and food writer who grew up in Bombay, India. Not For You is her first work of fiction/memoir and her third cookbook on Indian cuisine, inspired by four generations of family lore and traversing six different cuisines. Her unconventional approach to Indian food is illustrated in her books "A Dozen Ways to Celebrate" and "Crack the Code." She launched her blog Curry Cravings to showcase Indian cuisine and culture, and her own identity.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM The Conflict of Qin Shi Huang’s Legacy Many great leaders have left behind a strong legacy that enables generations of students to learn about them hundreds and thousands of years after their rule. First Emperor of Qin, Qin Shi Huang is one of these immortal rulers, however, his place in culture has not always been full of praise. Seen as a powerful tyrant but also a great unifier; people in China and abroad hold their own opinions about the Emperor, which are varying in levels of approval. We will explore both his positive and negative depictions in politics, culture, and even here in San Diego.

Admission/Cost: $5 for adults, FREE for SDCHM members, children 12 and under, and students with ID.

3:00 PM Tribute to the Reggae Legends 2017 As you might already know, Tribute to the Reggae Legends will be continuing into its 36th year. With the current outlook of the world, its people, and its environment, we decided that it was crucial that we continue to promote conscious reggae music using sound as power. Our ancestors of reggae music, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Burning Spear (just to name a few) have laid the path to liberation through music. So we must continue to use music, art and dance as the weapon for these serious times.

All through history, music has always been the weapon of change or played a major role beyond politics creating unity. The intent of the foundation of reggae music was to create unity in a time of division and hatred. They used music as means to give people upliftment through music. Roots Reggae music is important today because it unites us as one people and one human race. Reggae transcends politics, it is a spiritual vehicle that unites and sustains the spirit.

Let's continue to support Reggae Foundation artists that have given us African history, unity and empowerment to get up and stand up. Together let's work hard to preserve the message in Reggae music and its frequency to liberate our minds from suffering. We are convinced reggae music and its healing form will unite our nation again. Roots Reggae artists are like griots, they preserve the oral history of African culture, the source of all humanity.

Honorable Marcus Garvey says, "A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree planted without its roots".

Please join us at WorldBeat Cultural Center February 18th and 19th 2017 for Tribute to the Reggae Legends to continue this legacy.

6:30 PM Music: Camarada: Tango Obsession Latin American music has been an "obsession" for Camarada for over 20 years! Tango Obsession evokes the intoxicating emotions of Argentina and features the music of the great Astor Piazzolla. Piazzolla performed in many of Buenos Aires' finest tango bands of the 1940s, fusing classical, jazz, and tango into a distinctive, avant-garde musical idiom all his own. Selections will include his most celebrated works, such as the rousing Triunfal, two intimate and lyrical ballads, Milonga del Angel and Soledad, and several other golden standards, like Escualo and Le Grand Tango — all music that borders on bursting with the smoldering energy of Piazzolla's "Neuvo Tango!"

Concert-goers will also experience the magnetic pull of one of the most beautiful and famous tango pieces of all time, Volver, written by Carlos Gardel, the handsome singer/songwriter/composer/actor considered by many to embody the soul of the tango style. Dress to impress and wear smooth bottomed shoes—avoid flip flops or rubber bottom shoes. Both couples and individuals are welcome.

7:00 PM Opera: Falstaff Sir John Falstaff is the ultimate human juxtaposition: old yet immature, hapless but manipulative, decent yet wickedly indecent. Also a man of many appetites, the lecherous Falstaff can't resist his favorite vices: food, women and wine. Suddenly finding himself broke, he hatches a plot to cure his woes. He sends identical love letters to two married women to get his hands on their wealthy husbands' purse strings. Falstaff doesn't bank on getting found out and with the help of some merry wives, husbands and supernatural creatures, he gets his due and finds out the joke is on him. A brilliant comedy based on a character from Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, this period piece boasts an updated twist, pops of color and designs from a modern point of view for modern tastes. Starring Roberto de Candia as Falstaff, Ellie Dehn as Alice Ford, and Marianne Cornetti as Dame Quickly.

8:00 PM Stage: Blue Door Lewis is a tenured professor of mathematics at a well-regarded university. Underneath his veneer of success, however, lies a soul troubled by questions of personal and cultural identity as an African-American man. When his wife leaves him because he won't attend the Million Man March (also there's the issue with the laundry), Lewis will inadvertently conjure his ancestors who lead him through an unbelievable journey through the past and present. Filled with humor and woven through with original songs, Blue Door is a vivid, exuberantly theatrical play about the African-American male experience.
