The Cross-Cultural Center and Migrant Rights Awareness (MiRA) at UCSD present... Film Screening: Al Otro Lado. The film Al Otro Lado, in English titled To the Other Side, gives us a glimpse into three countries, three stories, three absences. Similarly, in all three stories we witness the desperation of children due to the departure of their fathers "To the Other Side". The film follows the story of three children, from Mexico, Cuba, and Morocco as they desperately try to cope with the realities of immigration in our society. Discussion will follow.

Fair & Lovely: Skin Censorship and  

Whitening Creamsfair

Thursday | February 17 | 5-7pm

Cross-Cultural Center Comunidad

Have you ever wondered why we're sold whitening creams? What was up with that controversy with Aishwariya Rai being too whitened for ELLE magazine? Have you noticed how so many Asian pop stars or Bollywood stars are so fair? Have a dialogue about whitening creams, shadeism, and the censoring of brown skin. What power structures create this shadeism phenomenon, and can we deconstruct them? We're going to have a student-made documentary ("Shadeism"), food, friends, community, and also try to have a deep dialogue about the meaning behind these so-called 'beauty' products.

Capoeira Therapy Sessioncapoeiratherapy

Monday | February 28 | 7-8:15pm

Price Center Dance Room

Burned out? Exhausted by school, work, activism, or society at large? Join us for an evening of fitness, music, self-expression, and self-care via capoeira, a Brazilian martial art (No experience required). What is Capoeira? Capoeira is a martial art that was created by African slaves who were brought to Brazil by Portuguese colonists. Because they were not allowed to fight, the slaves made their martial art look like a dance, creating capoeira's distinct dance-like form. In this program we will learn basic movements, learn music, and play capoeira! Snacks and water provided! Please wear comfortable work-out clothes, but jeans work too. For more information and to RSVP, contact UCSD Capoeira at capoeirasungods@gmail.com.
