This community event, which begins at 7:00 p.m. in the College Center’s Zimmer Theatre, relates to the international effort to apprehend a Ugandan warlord that was first set into motion with the documentary “Invisible Children: Rough Cut 2005.”

The San Diego-based Invisible Children organization is sending a team to present the film and lead a question-and answer discussion about Africa’s longest-running war and the Lord’s Resistance Army’s campaign to wrest control of Uganda.

Art Peace.  Its a simple idea from Allegany College of Maryland’s Peace Studies Club:  to have local artists of all abilities capture artistically what “peace means to them”.     This student-run club is inviting “peaces” in 2d, 3d and multimedia mediums which will be hung at the Allegany Arts Council’s Saville Gallery from August 22nd to the 31st.

“Argentina’s Dirty War,” a one-hour film first broadcast in 2009 in the BBC’s “Explore” series, looks at how this brutal history still haunts and divides the South American nation, especially its survivors. Carreras was a journalist, political activist and ...
