DSU Historical Film Series: “Reel” History, 9/20

The DSU Historical Film Series: “Reel” History will debut on Wednesday, September 20 at 7 p.m. in the Air Products Room at Trexler Library with a screening and discussion of “Norma Rae” (1979).

This biannual film series includes a film viewing and follow-up discussion of films linked by a common theme. The theme for the 2017-2018 academic year’s film screenings is “Women Making History.” The fall viewing of the film “Norma Rae” (1979) will be paired with a spring viewing of “Hidden Figures” (2016). In both films, “ordinary” women seek to “make” history despite the odds stacked against them.

Come out for an evening that will prove to be educational and entertaining. Refreshments will be provided. The evening will conclude with a raffle.

Character U Keynote Tomorrow

This Wednesday, September 13 at 3:00 p.m. in the Commonwealth Room in the DUC, Character U will welcome first-time keynote Jen Bricker. Jen Bricker was born without legs and with her heart on the opposite side of her chest. Shocked and uncertain they could care for a child with two birth defects, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: “Never say ‘can’t.’” And pretty soon, there was nothing that this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn’t conquer: roller skating, volleyball, power tumbling, spinning from silk ribbons 30 feet in the air.  But there is more to this story…..

I hope to see you all Wednesday at 3 p.m.
