Event Description 

The Jan Term Series continues with Ariel Luckey expanding on his one man play "Free Land"

A  nationally acclaimed poet, actor, and playwright whose community and performance work dances in the crossroads of education, art, and activism. Named a “Visionary” by the Utne Reader, Ariel seamlessly weaves storytelling, spoken word poetry, dance, acting, and hip hop music in compelling narratives of personal and political transformation.

Born and raised in Oakland, California, he has been a featured artist at the North Bay Hip Hop Theater Festival, the Hecho en Califas Festival, Café Cantante in Havana, Cuba, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City, the White Privilege Conference, and the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity.

Ariel’s hip hop theater show, Free Land, and his first book of poetry and lyrics, Searching for White Folk Soul, have inspired and informed audiences at theaters, conferences, community centers, and classrooms across the country.

"Crossing Borders" Theme for January Term 2012

January Term is a special opportuntiy for students to explore what traditional semesters cannot so bodly accomplish.  In Jan Term we go beyond the standard curriculum and its constraints to offer courses and events that allow all of us to engage tradition in new ways, to forward new ideas, to explore topics in great detail and to provide for flexible inquiry challenging the ordinary.
