    • Centering Relationships for Systems Change (Diversity Index # 4873- On Demand Content) Time: Mon. 3/1 8:00am - 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      Have you struggled to listen to (let alone understand) someone who disagrees with you, how you think, or how you live your life? Do you find yourself unfriending people in your social networks or cutting off relationships because of opposing beliefs? You are not alone. During this session you will learn how fear and power imbalances impact our capacity to communicate and connect with people different from us, and what it means to remain “value-based” in your actions, even in the face of conflict, disagreement, and dominance.

    • Giving Up Privilege (Diversity Index # 4872- On Demand Content) Time: Mon. 3/1 8:00am - 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      The concept of “privilege” represents a deep misunderstanding of racism and its impacts, instead reifying White supremacy and sowing separation and guilt. During this webinar, you will learn to differentiate between three distinct phenomenon that have been lumped into “White Privilege”: 1) Human Rights, 2) “Systemic Obliviousness,” and, 3) “Entitlement.” We explore how “benefit” and “advantage” narratives—connotations of “privilege”—are counter-productive to solidarity and equity and instead reinforce White supremacy, advocate assimilation, and perpetuate paternalism and defensiveness. We also examine how “privilege” denies the costs to White people as non-targets of racism: loss of humanity, connection, and belonging. NOTE: In this offering we use “White privilege” for teaching concepts that apply to all types of oppression and the use of “privilege” in broader social justice work.

    • Stopping the Cycle of Oppression (Diversity Index # 4861- On Demand Content) Time: Mon. 3/1 8:00am - 5:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      No person is born agreeing to oppress others or be oppressed. Young people have an innate sense of justice. We entered the world clear about our significance and ability to make things go well. It takes the systematic mistreatment of young people for us to doubt our goodness, thinking, or power to ensure justice for all. To interrupt the cycle of oppression we will need to recognize how we were hurt and commit to heal from internalized messages of discouragement, helplessness, or powerlessness. Giving up, waiting, or resentfully going it alone are no longer our only options. When we reconnect to our inherent human capacity to heal, we can and will stop the cycle of oppression.

      Clark DeCapite: Momentary Time: 10:00am - 9:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      Clark F. DeCapite, Jr.

      Richard B. Talkin Family Art Virtual Gallery
      February 8th - March 15th, 2021

      Howard Community College Visual Arts Department is proud to feature Linnea Poole and Clark Decapite February 8th - March 14th as a part of the Virtual Exhibition Series. Decapite will give a recorded artist lecture that will accompany the exhibitions. The lecture will be available for viewing on March 16, 2021.


      Through the use of replicated forms taken from dated, often times antiquated objects; I attempt to represent the relationship between the existing and the existed. Much like snapshots taken out of the context of time, each object represents a moment within its previous reality. It is through the representational compiling of moments in time that a new structure is formed, dictated by each individual unit placement in the whole. In choosing to use glass within my work, I attempt to relate the individual objects to an ethereal realm with the aid of the material’s transparent yet structural qualities. Maintaining an earthly presence, the object is grounded under its material weight and through its delicate nature, discussing a tactile existence in which fragility undermines all existing structures present. Through the introduction of flaws often times contrasted by mechanical enrichment, a balance between purity and discord exist.

    • Harmony: Powered by Diversity (Diversity Index # 4860) Time: 10:00am - 11:30am Locations: Online (Zoom) Details:

      Better understanding of Diversity as the foundation for Harmony, Peace, and all aspect of Life in general. We must learn to celebrate diversity regardless of its social context. At the essence, Diversity comes from diverse which simply means different. Music that everyone love is the product of diverse notes generating sounds that complement one another to form a melody. A single note alone cannot create music. What is true with music, is equally true with painting and art in general. Everything in life depends of diversity to have meaning and strive. It has already been proven scientifically that race as one' skin color is nothing but a social and political twist to fragment and better control the only race there is. We must learn from nature and apply the lessons in our own interactions with individuals that look differently from us. Everyone has the power to make a difference but it requires real knowledge.

    • HCC at 50: A Blast From the Past
      HCC at 50: A Blast From the Past Time: 10:00am - 9:00pm Locations: Online Details:

      HCC at 50: A Blast from the Past - Daily Life from the First Two Decades

      On behalf of the Howard Community College (HCC) 50th Anniversary History Committee, we are pleased to present this collection of photos from the college archives. This collection presents photographs and documents depicting daily life on the HCC campus during the first two decades. From its earliest years, HCC has been more than just a place of scholarship, but has served as a locality for events, personal and community growth, and diversity.


      We hope that you enjoy this look back at some familiar faces, now-gone locations, fun events, as well as a look into the inner workings of what made our campus tick in the 1970’s and 1980’s. While not all photos have attributions, we must acknowledge the early work of Quent Kardos, who was the college photographer through this time period. His lens did not just capture the events at hand, but also the character of the places and people in these images.


      We hope you enjoy this look back and find, as we did, some of what makes Howard Community College a great place to learn, work, and grow. On behalf of the 50th Anniversary History Committee:

      Janelle Broderick, Brian Cumer, Thomas Engelman, Rosemary Williams
