Story by Miraclejoy Curtis Design by Hailey McGraw

Every year, Central Washington University celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year will be extraordinary because the recent Not in Our Kittitas County movement to transcend hate and promote inclusivity complements Dr. King and what he stood for: peace, equality and justice. The fight for equality wasn’t easy during the civil rights movement. With all the aggression and hate towards people of color, Dr. King believed that the oppressed should respond with non-violent tactics such as peaceful protests. For myself personally, the most thrilling experience during the MLK Celebration Week would have to be the recital of the “I Have a Dream” speech. Hearing the famous words, “Let freedom ring!” sends chills as we remember where we were, how far we’ve come and how much further we have to go—as a campus, a country and the human race. I, too, have a dream. We all do! So, let’s come together and remember the importance of keeping the dream alive. The MLK Celebration Week has a combination of joyful singing, live performances, community members joining hands as they peacefully march through campus, and a theatrical performance to remember by Central students.

8TH ANNUAL MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. CELEBRATION & TRIBUTE The Mountaintop

Jan. 6 & 7 • 7:30 p.m. Jan. 8 • 2 p.m. • Free Tower Theatre (McConnell) Gripping re-imagining of Martin Luther King Jr.’s last night on earth, in which a mysterious stranger forces King to confront his destiny and his legacy.

Story by Julia Moreno Design by Vanessa Cruz

Each of us carries a personal story of experiences inside. This is what shapes who we are and what makes us, well…us. When we share our stories with people, it helps everyone understand each other a little more and changes our perspectives just a little bit. This year, the James E. Brooks Library is bringing different perspectives to our community through a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read grant. Central is the only university in the Pacific Northwest to receive the Big Read grant and will host multiple events around the book “The Things They Carried,” including a visit by its award-winning author Tim O’Brien. O’Brien, a Purple Heart recipient, crafts interrelated short stories that reflect his experiences as a Vietnam veteran. The book blends fact with fiction and portrays different perspectives of the same event, which takes readers on an insightful

journey about not only warfare but also the contrast between the truth and reality soldiers face during war. “I wanted people to feel what it was like to be a soldier, to walk in the boots of a soldier…even if you’ve never been in a war,” O’Brien said. “Through a story you can get a feeling for not just how afraid you are but also moments of joy and moments of introspection and thinking about your life when you’re always in such danger of dying. You tend to examine your life pretty carefully and realize what’s important to you. It was really to make readers feel they had gone through a war after reading my book.” The Big Read kicks off with a book club meeting Jan. 9 at the Brooks Library. This quarter is packed full of events, building up to O’Brien’s visit to Ellensburg in April.

A limited number of the books will be available to check out from the Brooks Library, and some free books will be available at each Big Read event. Copies can also be purchased at local bookstores.

MEET TIM O’BRIEN Favorite song: “I’ll Remember You” by Bob Dylan Favorite food: Lobster Pets: None, but he does have two sons (11 & 13 yrs) Hobbies: Tim has been practicing magic since he was young. He, his wife and his two sons put together a two-hour long magic show with costumes and different acts. CHECK OUT ALL THE BIG READ EVENTS http://bit.ly/cwubigread

Beads of sweat fall down Regie Cabico’s face. He’s focused on his next words, His next movement The crowd’s reaction. He moves erratically, rhythmically, Calculated. The spotlight falls on him, His suits scream with class. Stories pour like a river from his mouth. Words drip drip drip from his tongue. He projects “out-of-the-closet” verses, His personal brand of poppin’ theatrical showstoppin’ rhymes That leave his audiences Intertwined and connected with him. The stage struggles to contain Cabico And the energy that flows from his inner sea Of words and phrases, Life’s challenging lessons. An emotional wave tackles his composure. But his voice rises rises rises with power. Soon a gentle demeanor returns as his eyes wander upward. He recalls his childhood, His mother’s dream, An innocent immigrant upon American soil.

JANUARY 31 7 p.m. • Free SURC Ballroom

He emerged from the end of a slamming era Filled with poetic legends. A time where rhymes spoke volumes In a wrinkle of closeted silence. He’s filled with pride, passion and love for the craft. Year after year he continues to win win win accolades amongst his peers. Who’s shared the stage with Ginsberg And howled to the world. Two of the best minds of their generations Baring their all for the sake of poetry. A man of a spoken art form, His words but a soft memory Of days left behind And the life and shows that lie ahead.

As college students, we don’t agree on everything but we can all relate on one thing — food. We love it, we enjoy making it (well some of us do), and most of all, we enjoy eating it. But some students do face the dilemma of not knowing whether or not they’ll be able afford their next meal. Did you know that six to seven percent of students on CWU’s campus face food insecurity, hunger or homelessness? That’s over 700 of our fellow Wildcats going hungry and that’s too many. But don’t fret, we can make a difference. The Associated Students of Central Washington University has teamed up with an organization called Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH). When Andrea Saavedra was campaigning for her position as VP for Equity and Community Affairs she wanted to connect PUSH with ASCWU events. And she’s done exactly that! Whenever there’s an ASCWU sponsored event, there’s an opportunity to donate non-perishable food. Here’s where we come in: you can donate at all the ASCWU events during Winter and Spring quarters, as well as other designated locations.

Story by McKenzie Lakey Design by Matthew Conrardy

I rotate through the air, graceful and roaring with life. Every single movement I make is calculated; the release, the spin, the catch. It’s a thing of beauty, that took years of practice.

Since we first teamed up we’ve performed in front of audiences all across the globe. Together we’ve entertained crowds in 49 of 50 states. We’ve been on movie sets and even in TV commercials. From the U.S. to Berlin, even all the way to Tokyo, we have seen it all.

I never imagined that the road from the assembly line into the “real world” would lead me here, to a life of show business. I figured I’d live out my life like every other chainsaw that I was assembled alongside. I’d spend most of my time out in nature, cut a few trees and then retire to the garage. But then good ol’ Mad Chad Taylor picked me up one day and tossed me into the air. The rest is high-flying, highstakes Hollywood juggling history.

After years of working together I have an agreement with Mad Chad: As long as he catches me properly after spinning me through the air, I’ll make sure our show amazes (and terrifies) crowds everywhere. And that he keeps all of his fingers… Ours is a partnership based entirely on skill and trust. We’ve been doing this for years—we have it down to an art form. But don’t just take my word for it, ask the one-and-only “Evel Knievel of Comedy”— who has somehow managed to go unscathed through all of our stunts. “If you really want people to put two hands together,” Mad Chad says, “you gotta be willing to risk one of your own!”

Together we have even conquered a Guinness World Record, completing a full 78 throws with two of our other chainsaw buddies. Some people may call him crazy. I have to admit, from time to time I begin to wonder what I’ve gotten myself into. I mean, this guy has been juggling semi-safe objects since he was 13-years-old and escalated to tossing me through the air. But then I see the passion that he exudes on stage, the thrill of the show, the electric energy that crackles around us. That’s what I live for. That’s what we live for. Besides, our journey has brought us to the Pacific Northwest—the one and only Evergreen State and Wildcat territory! What more could we possibly ask for?

All amateurs and talents welcome! If you’ve got what it takes to show off your stuff, or if you’re down to critique with a hardy applaud or a “booooooooo” Showtime at Central is for you! Each year, the Black Student Union brings the tradition of the legendary talent show “Showtime at the Apollo” to Central Washington University. Historically, “Showtime at the Apollo” is significant to Black America. The TV show had it all: comedy, singing, rapping, dancing, music, live performances and much more! Stars like Billie Holiday, Luther Vandross, Lauryn Hill and Stevie Wonder had their careers launched from the Apollo stage. Prior to the make it or break it moment, each contestant rubbed a tree stump for a stroke of luck before hitting the stage. Showtime at the Apollo was more than just an entertaining experience. It was a cultural institution for blacks to come together socially and emotionally in a special place.

The reputation of the show includes a personable host, live entertainment and the enjoyment of showcased talent, while the audience delivers immediate feedback – literally. Join the joviality! This year you can expect talent from all across the board. You’ll discover how much finesse the Central community has when it comes to having the courage to show the world what they’ve got. Last years’ grand prize winner, Wambui, blew the crowd away with her spoken word performance. “It was very intimidating at first, the piece I performed was nothing like I’ve ever done before,” Wambui recalled. “I just closed my eyes and let myself be vulnerable. That’s what makes us stronger.” Come prepared to let the hopeful know how amazing their talent is or isn’t. The amateurs know they will either “be good or be gone.”

FEBRUARY 17 TBA • Free SURC Ballroom A spin on Showtime at the Apollo, the audience will give their feedback – immediately – to performers who are still on stage after giving it their all.

FOR MORE INFORMATION Contact the Black Student Union at bsu@cwu.edu.

WHAT’S WITH THE STUMP? It is part of the Tree of Hope that once stood on the “Boulevard of Dreams.” This elm tree, thought to bring good luck by touching or standing underneath it, became a representation of the hope and promise Harlem created for blacks in the ‘30s. The tree was removed in 1934, cut and sold. Ralph Cooper Sr., who hosted Amateur Night at the Apollo, bought the stump, had it preserved and placed it on the stage so performers could rub the original Tree of Hope.
