Bismarck State College Campus Read Committee and the Embracing Diversity Team continue fall programming with another public event on soccer.
On Tuesday, Nov. 23, the campus and community can view a free showing of the movie "Bend It Like Beckham" at 6:30 p.m. in Sidney J. Lee Auditorium, Schafer Hall.
BSC students, faculty and staff are reading Warren St. John's "Outcasts United: An American Town, a Refugee Team, and One Woman's Quest to Make a Difference." St. John writes for the New York Times, the New Yorker, New York Observer, Wired and Slate. He will speak at BSC in April.
"Outcasts United" is the story of what happened when three disparate elements - a rancorous town, a team of refugee outcasts and a female Muslim coach - come together in a kind of impromptu social experiment. The book is about resilience, personal empowerment and creating community against all odds.
Luma Mufleh, the transforming coach of the refugee soccer team, spoke Nov. 9 at BSC on "Changing the World One Game at a Time."
