BUFFALO NICHOLS CONCERT SPONSORED BY WXPR

Nicolet College Theatre
Admission: $28.00

Purchase tickets at wxpr.org

Beer, wine, and concessions will be available for purchase beginning at 6:30 pm.

Since his earliest infatuation with the guitar, Buffalo Nichols has asked himself the same question: How can I bring the blues of the past into the future? After cutting his teeth between a Baptist church and bars in Milwaukee, it was a globetrotting trip through West Africa and Europe during a creative down period that began to reveal the answer.

While acknowledging the joy, exuberance, and triumph contained in the blues, Nichols looks intently at the genre’s origins, which harken back to complicated and dire circumstances for Black Americans. With this in mind, Nichols says there is a missing link, which he’s often used as a compass: Black stories aren’t being told responsibly in the genre anymore. To begin changing that, Buffalo Nichols gets the chance to tell his own story in the right way.

The Truth About Reading

Free Admission - Click here to RSVP

This eye-opening documentary film from Emmy award-winning director Nick Nanton tells the story of illiteracy and sub-literacy in America. The purpose of the film is to spread the word, not just about the detrimental effect the crisis is having on our society and economy, but that there are proven and effective solutions already available. With a growing voice and an everincreasing need for resources (many kids are on long waiting lists for services because the support to handle this large number of people is not there), we can stand up together and make what seems impossible – possible! The Truth about Reading will engage and captivate, while educating and motivating viewers.

TICKBORNE ILLNESSES PRESENTATION BY JEFF WAITE

Nicolet College Theatre

Free Admission

There is much yet to be learned about ticks and the diseases they can transmit to people. What is known is that in the United States nearly 500,000 people are infected each year, and around 20% of those infected develop chronic symptoms that become life altering, or in some cases life ending. Since neither ticks nor we are planning on departing anytime soon, it’s imperative to know what needs to be done to coexist. This presentation focuses on conveying the knowledge needed to remain healthy in the epicenter of Midwestern tick populations.

Stop on by Truvy’s Beauty Spot in Northwest Louisiana, Chinquapin Parish, where the women “are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel”.

Join Shelby, M’Lynn, Clairee, Truvy, Annelle, and yes, even Ouiser, as they navigate the complexities of motherhood, community, and conflict in a small town. Bring the tissues.
