BRCC presents Amiri Baraka's award-winning play, Dutchman Print E-mail

Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) presents the award-winning play, Dutchman, by Amiri Baraka on November 19-22, in the Blackbox Theater, located on the Mid City Campus, 201 Community College Drive.

 

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Nov. 19-21, and 2 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 22. Admission is free and open to the public.

 

Baraka's Dutchman premiered in 1964 in Greenwich Village, winning an Obie Award. It was the last play that Baraka staged under the name LeRoi Jones which coincided with the playwright's increasing involvement in Black Nationalism.

 

Through characters mired in racism and guilt, the play will force audiences to take a hard look at their own prejudices and assumptions. Controversial from the beginning, Dutchman has no less serious an impact today than it did at the time of its first production.

 

Sitting aboard a subway train, Clay, a young black man, is approached by Lula, a young white woman. Their interaction ranges from playful to deadly serious, until the play reaches its shocking and violent climax. Audiences will be struck by the evident racism seething in both characters, by their frankness, and by the end result of the conversation.

 

BRCC's adaptation of Dutchman is directed and designed by David Sedevie. The production is managed and built by Dr. Tony E. Medlin, and produced by the BRCC Student Government Association.

 

For additional information, contact Dr. Tony E. Medlin at (225) 216-8129. For media inquiries, contact LaTonya Scott at (225) 216-8106.

Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) students are now able to seamlessly transfer to Southern University (SU) thanks to the new “Bears 2 Jaguars” academic partnership.

 

At a ceremony held at SU on Thursday, Sept. 18, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by BRCC Chancellor, Dr. Andrea Lewis Miller; SU Acting Chancellor, Mr. Flandus Mclinton; and other officials, setting the “Bears 2 Jaguars” into action.

 

The “Bears 2 Jaguars” agreement will provide greater educational resources for students of the community by creating a seamless transfer from BRCC to SU.

 

Upon completion of BRCC’s political science, psychology, history, criminal justice, business, and military science associate degrees, students can be admitted to SU with junior status.

 

BRCC Chancellor, Dr. Andrea Lewis Miller, is excited about the new partnership.

 

“It makes perfect sense for our institutions to come together to make sure our students are furthering their education by receiving their bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees, and Ph.D.’s,” said Miller. “This is just the beginning, and we intend to expand on what we have started here today.”

 

SU Acting Chancellor, Flandus McClinton, is equally as excited.

 

“We know this is an important start in the right direction,” said McClinton. “The sky’s the limit what we can do with this program.”

BRCC receives $46,400 donation from The Dow Foundation for new program targeting women Print E-mail

Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC) recently received a $46,400 donation from The Dow Foundation for a new program called Women in Welding.


The contribution from The Dow Foundation will provide scholarships to students interested in enrolling in short-term training to earn non-credit industry-based certifications. The funds will go toward equipment, training, safety equipment, and more.

 

The Women In Welding Program will address training needs for individuals that are unemployed, underemployed, and/or veterans aiming to improve careers through advanced training in the high growth markets of the industrial sectors.

 

Participants will receive craft training and soft skills training. Students will also receive mentoring from experienced women welders.

 

With wages rising and the need for more welders, women are now stepping up to fill the void. 28-year-old Angel Yaghi, is ecstatic about starting the program.

 

“I have been interested in obtaining training such as this for quite some time. It’s exciting to be a part of a welding program that is focused on women,” she stated.

 

According to the American Welding Society, it is estimated that only 5% of welders in the U.S. are women. However, many in the welding industry believe that women possess the characteristics that make up a good welder, including great hand-eye coordination and patience.

 

Classes at BRCC’s Port Allen Campus begin this Saturday, June 21 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.). Classes at the Plaquemine Campus begin Monday, June 23 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.) Both classes are full.

BRCC Business Graduate Comes Full Circle Print E-mail

 

Baton Rouge Community College's (BRCC) Career Center provides guidance through assessment to students that are in transition, beginning a new phase in their journey, or simply looking for opportunities to grow and explore.

 

With that being said, you would think that a trip to the Career Center would be high on the priority list for most students, especially those nearing graduation, but unfortunately that is not always the case.


In Jaime Sherman's case, it was not until a few months after graduation that she realized she needed some help, and she contacted the BRCC Career Center.  Through a few meetings with a career counselor, she identified some short and long term career goals and began a plan to achieve those goals.  One of those included working with her current employer to begin adding additional responsibilities in her job which would allow her to move in a new career direction.


Over the next 15 months, Sherman developed new job skills, participated in additional professional development  to add to her Associate of Business degree, and kept in touch with the BRCC Career Center to monitor opportunities arising in her area of interest.  Eventually, her diligence paid off, and she was submitted for a job posting through the Career Center.  It was with a long term Career Center employer partner, All Star Automotive Group.


Sherman says that if she had not worked with the Career Center, this opportunity would not have been available to her.  She is now working in her career field and her typical day consists of advertising and marketing, budget meetings, developing and executing marketing strategies, and planning promotional events.  She recently represented All Star Automotive at the BRCC Career & Job Fair this semester, as the employer.


Her advice to future BRCC graduates is to stay connected, and take advantage of BRCC's Career Center. She also encourages students to get involved in organizations within the community.


Congratulations Jaime Sherman, a 2013 BRCC Business graduate!
