Changing SWVA Tobacco Culture through Peer Mentoring

January 31, 2022
1:00 pm 1:50 pm
Zoom
UVA Cancer Center, UVA Wise Peer Mentors, and Professor Cody Sanders will share their experiences in peer mentoring against tobacco, “Changing SWVA Tobacco Culture through Peer Mentoring.” The SWVA region has had a pro-tobacco culture incorporated into its Appalachian identity, increasing its acceptance among youth. To counter these cultural norms, UVA Wise students work as peer mentors to generate anti-tobacco messaging for the community.

Freedom Riders Sponsored by Pro-Art

February 25, 2022
7:30 pm
Union HIgh School
Mad River Theater Works is an acclaimed touring ensemble that creates vibrant and evocative plays with music for families and young audiences based on American history and folklore. Founded in 1978, Mad River presents original productions that explore traditional stories in a unique and innovative style. ​Freedom Riders explores the valiant and courageous personalities behind one of the most critical chapters in the history of the civil rights movement. The play demonstrates the importance of working together to affect change and specifically how non-violent protest was used to combat the cruelties of segregation. Set in 1961, fifteen years after the United States Supreme Court had outlawed segregation, bus lines and cities throughout the south still enforced a rigid system of separating black and white citizens. The freedom riders, both black and white Americans, decided to travel together on buses that crossed state lines purposefully disregarding the hateful segregation practices that were still commonplace. The unforgettable heroes and the facts behind the events portrayed in Freedom Riders are essential to a full understanding of the civil rights era and American history.
