Racism continues in America despite increased awareness and education. Find out what you can do to curb ignorance and promote equality of thought and action in the Harvill building, Room 101, at 6:30 p.m. Calvin Terrell, 2000 City of Phoenix Martin Luther King Jr. Living the Dream recipient, will be on hand to speak about what something as simple and seemingly harmless as a racial joke can spawn. Beyond Tolerance presents the event. For more information, contact Matt Case at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Platelets, plasma and T-cells, oh my! The American Red Cross is back with the bloodmobile (how do they get that thing through all the construction?). Stop by the cactus garden from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to donate some life-giving goodness and support the University Activities Board's rush to increase the blood stash. For more information, contact January Terry at 621-0763.
In recognition of Black History Month, the Africana Studies department will put on a free movie showing tonight at Pima Residence Hall's conference room, 1340 E. First St. The film, "Quartier Mozart," recounts the education of a young schoolgirl and gives some insight into black history. The show starts at 5 p.m. and is free. For more information, contact Cynthia N. Quijada at 621-3419.
Contemporary and chamber music fans, get ready for a rocking evening at Crowder Hall. The internationally acclaimed Turtle Island String Quartet will join forces with Cuban-American sensation Paquito D'Rivera to play some bluegrass, folk, swing, jazz, bebop, funk, New Age, rock, salsa and some other jammin' grooves beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Complex. UApresents brought the night together, and all seats are $35 and reserved.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. For more information, contact UAB concerts at 621-5779 or the Centennial Hall Box Office at 621-3341.
