Event Details

Ni Wakati / Its Time (93 minutes)
Director: Michael Wanguhu
Country: Kenya / USA
 
An inspiring story that re-introduces Africa’s rich diversity to the rest of the world, as M1 (Dead Prez) and Umi (P.O.W.) travel to East Africa and connect with Ukoofulani Mau Mau, a revolutionary youth movement of artists in the slums of Nairobi.
 
Through music, food and culture they break mistaken myths about Africa and collectively travel to Tanzania to connect with former Black Panther members Mzee Pete O’Neal and Mama Charlotte O’Neal. Interviews with Geronimo Ji Jaga, Davey D, Toni Blackman, Binyavanga Wainaina, and more.
 
This is a great film for young people to see.
 
Screening is courtesy of the Silicon Valley African Film Festival.

Leadership Mountain View

 

Who are the 'players' in the cultural, artistic, and recreational life of the city? How does city government work? How does Mountain View fit into the regional picture? What are the important issues facing the local education and public safety systems? How can citizens make a difference?

 

These and many more community themes are explored in the LMV course, which runs September through May, typically meeting on the second Friday of each month and with one Saturday half-day meeting.

 

·         Leadership Mountain View (LMV) is a community leadership education program for adults who live or work in Mountain View

 

·         Spend nine full Fridays and one 1/2 day in classrooms and on field trips learning about Leadership and about Mountain View

 

·         Instructors are local leaders and experts from the public and private sectors
