Feb. 19

Sex + City’s Feb. 13 presentation of the documentary “Live Nude Girls Unite!” gave City College audience members an in-depth look into the world of peep shows, lap dancing, and stripping.

“Live Nude Girls Unite!” highlights the historical unfair treatment of female adult entertainers and the issues they face: racism, lack of privacy, harassment and unequal pay. Most women in the film are college-educated and worked at the now defunct Lusty Lady peep show—the world’s only unionized gentleman’s club.

The film documents continuing unsatisfactory working conditions that led to a strike in hopes of helping dancers attain better working conditions.

Dec. 9, 2013

Emily Bazar, a senior writer for USC Annenberg’s Center for Health Reporting and Obamacare expert, will be giving a lecture for those concerned with the new healthcare at Sacramento State University in the CSUS Ballroom today at 6:30pm.

Like many Americans, Bazar understands this new law is long and confusing and plans to talk about and answer any questions concerning what students need to know about the new bill.

Bazar writes a weekly column for the Center for Health and Reporting called “Ask Emily”, where she takes three questions sent to her about Obamacare and answers them in a simple and understandable manner.

Although she said she understands that every individual’s case is different, her goal is to broaden the general knowledge of Obamacare while working with attendees to answer any question they may have. She will also be around after the lecture to attempt to answer more specific questions to the best of her ability.

The event is sponsored by Sacramento State University, The Sacramento Bee, USC Price, Capital Public Radio, and The Center for Health Reporting.

Admission to the event is free, and is open to the public; parking is also free in Parking Structure II.

Four City College Music Department’s faculty wowed the crowd when they played to an almost full crowd at a noon concert in the Little Theater.

Host and adjunct professor Nancy Salerno Lower called the concert “a journey through musical history.”

Quite the journey it was as each pianist played his or her selected pieces to what sounded like perfection.  The approximate 40-minute concert featured pieces by famous composers Johann Sebastian Bach, Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt and Victor Young, as well as two self-composed pieces by faculty members Reggie Graham and Richard Clinger.

Lower began the show with Bach, giving a brief background about the composer and the choice of music.  Each one of the pianists gave the audience some related information on the music and composer they played.

Virginia Electra was the second faculty pianist. She played a piece from Chopin’s “Nocturne In C Minor Opus 48 No. 1.”

Clinger, who has been at City College since 1980, was the third in the line of performers. He played two pieces of music. The first was a piece by 19th century composer Liszt, followed by Clinger’s own work “Impromptu” which he composed at 16 years old.

“The dude that composed his…» Read More
