2/20/17 Minutes – Spring Calendar finalized!

In attendance: Jackson (secretary), Ju Ping, Ty (moderator)
Start time: 7:05 PM

1. Event Review – We watched Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution on Saturday night. The turnout was great, with a bunch of new people. The movie attracted a lot of attention, as there’s still a lot of interest in the Panthers. Jackson says we should run it again.

2. Upcoming Event – We’re showing “Far Beyond the Stars” (Star Trek: DS9) on Friday night. We’re ready for it.

3. MBLGTACC – Ty just came back from a conference for queer college students. He reported back on some of the cool panels there, including “Marxism and Queer Liberation.” He was inspired by how the very radical workshops there were jam-packed!

4. Book – Ty picked up a book called Queering Anarchism at the conference. He wants to donate it to the library, and he wants to be reimbursed $20 for buying it. We’re ok with this!
