Voice‘s On-Campus Choices: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall
The exhibit Freedom Without Walls will be in showing beginning Monday in the ICC Galleria. All it takes is a few spare moments between classes or when waiting in line for a cup of coffee at MUG to take a glance at this photo exhibit on the Berlin Wall. It contains historical photos ranging from the wall’s construction in 1961 until its fall in 1989, as well as the diplomacy involved in the Cold War.
Freedom Without Walls will be showing until the end of the week, so make sure to take some time out by Friday and see a quick glimpse of the Wall. For more information on the coinciding speech competition this Tuesday, lectures throughout the week, and the club night at the German Embassy this Friday, check out the exhibit’s website.
The non-profit organization Invisible Children has been anything but invisible over the past six years. With the main aim to provide secondary education to children in Northern Uganda, maybe you didn’t know that it all started as a film project.
When three ambitious filmmakers traveled to Africa in search for a story, they saw the horrors and realities of northern Uganda’s use of children soldiers and night commuters. The result was the documentary Invisible Children and the non-profit was an answer to the question posed by the film: “How can I help?” You can start by attending a screening of the film in ICC 115, this Thursday at 8:15 p.m.

If you’re looking for something a little less costly to do this Friday night (that means no Christmas Carol 3D) you can go to the Village C Alumni Lounge for Mafia Night. This unique event will include a screening of both the Godfather 1 and 2 and free Italian food. You even have the chance to prove yourself a true gangster with the trivia competition. This is exciting, especially because they aren’t subjecting people to the horrors of the Godfather 3.
