Here’s the Scoop–Oct. 21, 2016

gordon-parks-imageFaculty and Staff are invited to join in the discussion of Gordon Parks’ autobiography, A Choice of Weapons, with Professors Paula Manns and Effie Russell, 12:30-1:45 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the art gallery. Parks (1912-2006) began his career as a photographer, chronicling the WPA projects of the 1930s, and eventually became the first African American staff photographer and writer for Life Magazine, the foremost photojournalist publication in the world of the period.

Although Parks’ subject matter was diverse, much of it focused on bringing awareness to issues of poverty and racism, subjects still relevant today.

Light refreshments will be served and copies of the book will be provided to participants. If you wish to attend, contact Maryann Flemming-McCall, mccall@atlantic.edu, ext. 4987. This event is sponsored by the Instructional Resource Committee.


The Atlantic Cape Women’s Basketball team volunteered for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event on the Ocean City Boardwalk Oct. 16. The ladies worked the registration table and distributed water, snacks and literature to the hundreds of walkers at the event. Walkers and teams of walkers raised funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research, life-saving education and critical patient services for the American Cancer Society.
