After Apartheid: Photo Gallery by Tyler Essary
Location: Spencer's Coffee

WKU photojournalism student Tyler Essary traveled to South Africa this summer to document the Zuheir Sofia Endowed International Faculty Seminar (ZSEIFS). He planned to compile two videos related to the IYO/ZSIEFS (available for viewing on OIP WKU). What he didn't plan on was being transformed by the people of South Africa and their stories. He visited various cities and townships, meeting friends of cabbies and talking with children playing outside, taking photos along the way. What resulted was a striking collection of photographs that each capture a small facet of the rainbow nation. Don't miss After Apartheid, on display at Spencer's Coffee through the end of February. Each photo is for sale, all proceeds will go to Masinyusane, a non-profit organization based in South Africa that is dedicated to providing various educational opportunities and resources to children in townships.

Join us November 9th at 7pm at Spencer's Coffee to hear photographer Tyler Essary speak about his experience in South Africa and the inspirations behind this collection.

Black Classic Film Series: "Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968"
Location: Rodes Harlin Hall

Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968 brings to light one of the bloodiest tragedies of the Civil Rights era after four decades of deliberate denial. The killing of four white students at Kent State University in 1970 left an indelible stain on our national consciousness. But most Americans know  nothing of the three black students killed at South Carolina State College in Orangeburg two years earlier. This scrupulously researched documentary finally offers the definitive account of that tragic incident and reveals the environment that allowed it to be buried for so long. It raises disturbing questions about how our country acknowledges its tortured racial past in order to make sense of its challenging present.
