Warhammer 40,000 Thursdays
Comix Zone – There is no time for peace. No respite. No forgiveness. There is only WAR!!! In the nightmare future of the 41st Millennium, Mankind teeters upon the brink of destruction. The galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man is beset on all sides by ravening aliens and threatened from within by Warp spawned entities and heretical plots. Only the strength of the immortal Emperor of Terra stands between Humanity and its annihilation, and in his name, countless warriors and agents do battle against the encroaching darkness. Foremost amongst them stand the Space Marines, the ultimate protectors of Mankind. Across airless moons, within the depths of dark, twisted hive worlds and even in the immaterial realm of Warp space, battles rage that will shape the future of the galaxy forever. It is a universe that you can enter today, if you dare. But remember that this is a dark and terrible era, and there is no,peace amongst the stars... Warhammer 40,000 is a hobby where your collection of Citadel miniatures represents the Imperium of Man or one of its many enemies.

Screen + Post Film Discussion of "Whose Streets"
Community Folk Art Center – Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Post Film Discussion led by Dr. Casarae Gibson, Professor in the African American Studies department at Syracuse University.

Syracuse: How far from Birmingham - 1963 CORE Protests
Onondaga Historical Association – Syracuse: How far from Birmingham – The 1963 CORE Protests and the Racial Politics of Urban Renewal On Thursday, February 22nd, Curator of History Bob Searing will speak about the CORE (the Congress on Racial Equality) protests during the 1960s. In the summer and fall of 1963, the Congress on Racial Equality, a significant national civil rights group, organized a series of marches to protest the city’s program of urban renewal, which was destroying much of the 15th ward, and disproportionately affecting the city’s black community. CORE‘s actions and the city’s response to them mark an important and often overlooked aspect of the larger civil rights movement, which is so often focused on the southern United States. Segregation and racial inequality were not just a southern phenomenon. The protests of 1963 highlight the important work done by civil rights activists in northern cities like Syracuse to combat a wide-spread system of de-facto segregation that were exacerbated by these urban renewal programs. This event is free and open to the public and will last approximately 45 minutes.
