The Theatre Group at SBCC presented two great productions in the Fall: The compelling drama Other Desert Cities, written by Jon Robin Baitz and directed by Michael Gros; and a student showcase production of Comedies by David Ives—six hilarious comedies all rolled together in one presentation—directed by Maggie Mixsell. Both productions received positive reviews and were a treat for audiences.

LEONARDO DORANTES MEMORIAL LECTURE SBCC’s annual Dorantes Lecture, established in memory of a beloved City College student who died in a raciallymotivated tragedy, featured political satirist and host of the CNN television docu-series “United Shades of America” W. Kamau Bell. In his discussion titled “The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour,” given the day after the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, Bell offered a comedic, eye-opening discussion on race in America, in addition to his candid musings on the country’s newly-elected President.
SEND SILENCE PACKING Eleven hundred backpacks were spread across the West Campus Lawn. They represented the average number of college students who end their lives each year. The event, created by the nonprofit organization Active Minds, served to de-stigmatize college student suicide, educate and assist students in speaking openly about mental health, and encourage students to get help. Send Silence Packing was co-sponsored by SBCC and the Santa Barbara County Department of Behavioral Wellness and supported by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Many of the backpacks were owned by suicide victims themselves and personal stories written by friends and loved ones were attached to a number of them. 2016-2017 Report to the Community |
