05/15/2019 - IRC Film Festival: It Will Be Chaos
It Will Be Chaos offers a personal look at the human consequences of the refugee crisis spanning the Mediterranean, as told through the stories of asylum seekers, as well as the Italian locals who cope with the influx of newcomers. The documentary highlights the story of Aregai, an Eritrean man fleeing repression and deprivation, and the journey of a Syrian mother and father, Wael and Doha, who lead their family in a perilous Mediterranean crossing. Stirring and complex, It Will Be Chaos is a harrowing look at what refugees go through when forced to escape war and terror at home. This revealing documentary highlights some of the troubling anti-immigrant populism and logistical issues they encounter after reaching the shores of Europe, which prevent them from living in freedom and safety.

Guest Speakers: Lorena Luciano and Filippo Piscopo, Directors/Producer

Admission/Cost: $15

04/26/2019 - Talk: Immigrant Resistance in the Deportation Nation
Professors Andrews and Prieto debut each of their new book projects on barriers to and opportunities for undocumented politics in the deportation nation. Andrews's Undocumented Politics: Place, Gender, and Pathways of Mexican Migrants and Prieto's Immigrants Under Threat: Risk and Resistance in the Deportation Nation together offer an analysis of the transnational relations, local political conditions, and gendered and racial hierarchies that reinforce immigrants' subordination at a time of unprecedented repression and create the conditions for the emergence of collective contention from these unlikely challengers. In this conversation between the authors, Andrews and Prieto reflect on the myriad ways that everyday life both enable and constrain immigrants' political mobilization and social mobility. The format for this session begins with brief presentations on from Professors Andrews and Prieto on their respective book projects, followed by a discussion between the authors and the audience.

10/03/2018 - Discussion: Desegregating Mississippi
In 1954, the Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education held that racial segregation in educational and other facilities violated the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Yet, school integration did not immediately follow and was actively resisted, often by violence from every day citizens, communities and local and state governments. The library is honored to host a talk featuring Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Jeffrey Carr, one of the first African-Americans to integrate Mississippi College in 1972 and worked side-by-side with civil rights leader John Lewis on a voters' rights campaign in Jackson, Mississippi, during the 1960s. Dr. Carr will be interviewed by Dr. Karl Martin.

09/30/2018 - Discussion: Fighting for Cyber Supremacy in an Age of Extremism
The hottest social media star in the Middle East is a radical Saudi cleric. But this powerful figure has gone virtually unnoticed in Western media. Do we need a new "Manhattan Project" to counter social media's power to promote terror and extremism? Western observers marveled at the power of social media to mobilize young protesters during the Middle East's "Arab Spring." When democracy didn't result, many Americans lost interest. Meanwhile, social media became a prime recruiting and organizational tool for terrorists and extremists in the Middle East. What can we learn about the power of social media to persuade that might apply to situations in America?
