Apr 9 02:00 pm Julius Caesar Orlando Shakespeare Theater
$12 student rush tickets / $10 off advanced purchase. - When men feel they can no longer trust their leader, where is the line between patriotism and personal ambition? Caesar, the most popular general in Rome, is assassinated, leaving two men – the honourable Brutus and the ambitious Cassius – to divide the spoils. But they've acted without Mark Antony, Caesar's devoted follower and determined successor, and soon the world they have fought to preserve is brought to the brink of anarchy. Julius Caesar is a dazzling masterpiece of betrayal, violence, and perhaps most surprisingly — love. Tina Packer, founder and former Artistic Director of Shakespeare & Company in Massachusetts, leads this traditional retelling with a small cast in the intimate Goldman Theater.

Apr 9 04:30 pm Racial Dynamics in America - The Cosmopolitan Canopy College of Sciences (CS)
Professor Elijah Anderson's talk will illuminate the public life of an American city, offering a major reinterpretation of the racial dynamics in America. He introduces the concept of the “cosmopolitan canopy”—the urban island of civility that exists amidst the ghettos, suburbs, and ethnic enclaves where segregation is the norm. Under the cosmopolitan canopy, diverse peoples come together, and for the most part practice getting along. The concept offers a new understanding of the complexities of present-day race relations and reveals the unique opportunities here for cross-cultural interaction. After carefully observing the neighborhood streets and public spaces of Center City Philadelphia, Anderson will reveal and illustrates in this lecture how city dwellers often interact across racial, ethnic, and social borders, engaging in a distinctive folk ethnography. Canopies operating in close proximity create a synergy that becomes a cosmopolitan zone. In the vibrant atmosphere of these public spaces, civility is the order of the day. However, incidents can arise that threaten and rend the canopy, including scenes of tension emphasizing the borders of race, but also class, sexual preference, and gender. But when this happens—assisted by gloss—the resilience of the canopy most often prevails. In this space all kinds of city dwellers—from gentrifiers to the homeless, cabdrivers to doormen—manage to co-exist in the urban environment, gaining local knowledge as they do, which then helps reinforce and spread tolerance through contact and mutual understanding. With compelling, meticulous descriptions of public spaces such as 30th Street Station, Reading Terminal Market, and Rittenhouse Square, and quasi-public places like the modern-day workplace, Anderson provides a rich narrative account of how blacks and whites relate and redefine the color line in everyday public life. He reveals how eating, shopping, and people-watching under the canopy can ease racial tensions, but also how the spaces in and between canopies can reinforce boundaries. Weaving colorful observations with keen social insight, Anderson shows how the canopy—and its lessons—contributes to the civility of our increasingly diverse public places.
Apr 9 05:00 pm Volunteer UCF Presents: OneLove Student Union (SU) Pegasus Ballroom
Come hear the story of Yeardley Love from one of her strongest supporters, her mother. Yeardley Love was a college student, just like most of us, whose life ended far too soon as a result of relationship violence. After, this horrific event, her mother along with other dedicated supporters decided to create a foundation that increases awareness on this very crucial social issue. The One Love Foundation was established in 2010 by Sharon and Lexie Love, as well as additional family and friends to honor the memory of Yeardley Reynolds Love. The “One” represents the number Yeardley wore on her jersey during her high school and college lacrosse career. The number has since been retired by the University of Virginia in her memory. Most importantly come learn about your options and what you can do to help! ***We will also have free Jeremiah's Italian Ice for those in attendance***
