Washington García grew up in a home filled with music. His Quito, Ecuador, family sang, danced flamenco, played the violin, the piano, the flute — three generations making music together day by day.

Today García is an acclaimed pianist who has performed all over the world and who, at age 25, became the youngest Latin American to receive a doctorate from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. But the thing he finds most rewarding is teaching in Texas State’s School of Music and working with children from across the globe at Texas State’s International Piano Festival, which he created in 2010.

This concert is free and open to the public.

Documentary screening of 'La Voz Del Pueblo'

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Joseph Deegan · jbdeegan@loyno.edu · 504-865-2141

Location: Communications/Music Complex, studio A

The documentary film, “La Voz Del Pueblo,” will debut at Loyola University on Monday Nov. 17, 2014 as part of the celebration of the 25thanniversary of the Salvadorian martyrs.

The free showing will take place in Studio A, on the fourth floor of the Communications/ Music Complex, at 7 p.m. The 17-minute documentary explores the increasing murder rates in Honduras and the daily struggles of being a reporter in the country. A brief Q&A session with the director, Father Jeremy Zipple, will be held following the film.  The event will also feature snacks and refreshments courtesy of the School of Mass Communication at Loyola University.

“Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world because of the corrupt and unable government. ‘La Voz del Pueblo’ explores their personal lives, exploring what motivates them to do what they do in the face of such terror,” said Fr. Zipple.

Zipple is a Jesuit priest and non-fiction television producer. He has been a director, producer and writer for National Geographic for five years. He has also produced for PBS, Discovery and TLC.

The School of Mass Communication, the Shawn M. Donnelley Center for Nonprofit Communications, the Office of Mission and Ministry, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Jesuit Social Research Institute and the Loyola University Community Action Program, will sponsor the event.

Additional information can be acquired through Joseph B. Deegan, university chaplain for service and social justice projects, at jbdeegan@loyno.edu or 504-865-2141.

The Donnelley Center for Nonprofit Communications is a student-run organization that provides free services and resources to nonprofits in the areas on strategic communications.

Fergusons Across America

Time: 6:30 pm to 8 pm

Contact: Patricia Boyett · pbboyett@loyno.edu

Location: St. Charles Room, 1st Floor, Danna Center

Loyola University New Orleans is hosting the forum, "Fergusons Across America," giving students the opportunity to participate in a discussion about what happened in Ferguson, Mo., after the shooting death of African-American Michael Brown by a white police officer set off a firestorm of violent protests as well as debates about race and law enforcement. Loyola’s Tuesday, Nov. 18 forum digs deeper into those issues and features former New Orleans Police Department superintendent and Loyola professor Ronal Serpas, Ph.D.

The panel discussion, set for 6:30 p.m. in the St. Charles Room located on the first floor of the Danna Student Center, exemplifies the fact that the situation in Ferguson is still fresh in people’s minds. In fact, a Loyola student who is originally from Ferguson saw the results of Brown's death firsthand and believes these ramifications continue today.

"Being in Ferguson, it was intense all the time. It's not going to settle down entirely until people feel like justice has been served. I feel like it needs to be more advertised," said Etefia Umana, a Ferguson native and Loyola junior. "The issues in Ferguson are not just native to Ferguson. America still needs to have a lot of conversations about race and socioeconomics. This forum can be helpful and insightful to have and we can use Ferguson as a reference point."

"The forum that we will hold is a great venue for discussing in detail the best procedures and practices that police agencies around the country are adopting to enhance community and police relations: procedural justice; police legitimacy; transparency and accountability. Taken together, these practices have great potential to reduce significantly discord between the police and communities when critical incidents happen," Serpas said.

Another panelist, Loyola psychology professor Charles Corprew, Ph.D., will also discuss the issue of hypermasculinity and how it plays into situations like the one witnessed in Ferguson. Recent studies show that there is a close link between hypermasculinity and violence, according to Corprew.

"I think it is very important to talk about masculinity from both perspectives: the police and Michael Brown," Corprew said. "There was a struggle and possibly a feeling of lost power, a core tenet of masculinity. If emasculated, men may attempt to regain their power in some form. This may have deleterious effects for all parties involved."

Sponsored by the African and African American Studies committee, other panelists from Loyola joining Serpas and Corprew include:

  • Assistant Professor of History Ashley Howard, Ph.D.;
  • Professor of Law Mitchell Crusto, J.D.;
  • Assistant professor in the Jesuit Social Research Institute Alex Mikulich, Ph.D.; and
  • President of Loyola’s Black Student Union Mathew Holloway
