The Association of Black Professionals, Administrators, Faculty and Staff (ABPAFS) is offering tickets to a performance of the play, Between Men and Cattle by Richard Kalinoski at the Detroit Repertory Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 17, at 8:30 pm.
As notes state, Between Men and Cattle centers on the relationship between a precocious black child who won second place in a speech competition in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and a white reporter whose interview ends with the boy in tears. When he becomes the President of a conservative white university 30 years later, the reporter arranges a second meeting with him, to find out, in part, what went wrong the first time.
Tickets are $11. If you would like to purchase tickets, please email or call Renoir Gaither at email@example.com or 764-7492 to arrange delivery.

Why Should Low-Wage Work Bother Me?:
The Cost of Undervaluing and
Underpaying Women's Work.
Thursday, February 22,
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Michigan Union, Pond Room,
Presenter: Anne Ladky, Executive Director, Women Employed
Despite women's progress, approximately one-third of all full time working
women earn less than $25,000 per year; over 15 million earn less than
$9/hour. When millions of workers earn too little to support their
families, they are cut off from the American dream ? the chance to build a
better life for themselves and their children. With lesser incomes, they
consume less, which threatens economic growth. Ms. Ladky will present her
findings on the serious negative consequences of low-wage work for our
families, communities, and the country's economic health.
