Pellissippi State Community College graphic design students will display their coursework during the annual Communication Graphics Technology Student Design Showcase.

The free event is 4-8 p.m. Thursday, April 23, and the community is invited. The theme of this year’s showcase is “We’re Cooking Up Something Good.”

The student showcase is like a graduation, celebration and potential job interview all rolled into one. It gives this year’s 19 senior-level participants the opportunity to present their portfolios for viewing and evaluation by invited area design professionals. Each student has his or her own table display, and each makes business cards and resumes available to the attending industry professionals.

The CGT Student Design Showcase takes place in the Bagwell Center for Media and Art on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

Pellissippi State: Civil Rights film ‘Say It Loud’ to show at Magnolia Avenue Campus

Rich-ProtestPellissippi State Community College’s Magnolia Avenue Campus hosts a showing of “Say It Loud: Knoxville During the Civil Rights Era,” a documentary chronicling local events that were part of the Civil Rights Movement, Thursday, April 16.

The film runs 2-3:20 p.m. in the Community Room, and the community is invited to the free event.

The event also features a brief presentation by Theotis Robinson Jr., a retired vice president for diversity and equity at the University of Tennessee and a columnist for the Knoxville News Sentinel. Robinson was one of the first African-American students to desegregate the UT campus in 1961. His brief presentation and question-and-answer take place after the documentary.

 “Say It Loud” uses archival footage, recently rediscovered, to study the African-American community in Knoxville and Civil Rights up to the 1970s. It was produced by the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound, a unit of the Knox County Public Library.

“It’s an unusual documentary that lets these rare images tell the story themselves,” said Bradley Reeves, archivist at TAMIS.

The documentary is being screened as part of the Magnolia Avenue Campus’ American History II class. The campus is located at 1610 E. Magnolia Ave.

For more information, visit www.pstcc.edu or call (865) 329-3100. To request accommodations for a disability, contact the executive director of Human Resources at (865) 694-6607 or humanresources@pstcc.edu.
