FROM: Beth Hillman
SUBJECT: Mills: Inside and Out

Dear all,

This week kicked off Mills' Black History Month events, presented by BHM 365, including a spirited celebration of music and dance with Mills alum Kymberly Jackson, students, and alums at Founders on Wednesday evening. Next Tuesday, February 13, please consider joining us for a screening of Tatia's Story in Danforth Auditorium, co-sponsored by Black Women Birthing Justice, the Tatia Oden French Foundation, and the Mills' student organization H.E.A.L. (Health Equity and Leadership). I'm grateful to BHM365 Coordinator Lisa Gray, the Black Student Collective, and the Race Gender and Sexuality Studies Department for bringing these events to campus. If you haven't yet seen this week's East Bay Express, pick up a copy to see a cover story highlighting the inequities in maternal health care that disproportionately affect black women and the research of Provost and Dean of Faculty Chinyere Oparah, co-author of the recently published Battling Over Birth: Black Women and the Maternal Health Care Crisis.

This week also brings special events from our renowned departments of music and dance. Today at noon, Ashley Fure, the Jean Macduff Vaux composer-in-residence at Mills and noted in this week's San Francisco Chronicle, will present a lecture in Littlefield Concert Hall that is free and open to the public. Tomorrow evening at 8 p.m., Fure's work, which explores the kinetic source of sound, will be performed by the Amaranth Quartet, cellist Crystal Pascucci, and percussionist William Winant.

This afternoon at 4 p.m., our dance department concludes its inaugural Thea Project celebrating the life and passions of Thea Faust Anderson '14 (1992-2016) with an informal presentation by Axis Dance Company and Mills College dancers at Haas Pavilion. As you head into your weekend, I hope you find time to celebrate the creativity that artists and performers, at Mills and beyond, bring to our worlds.
