It's a big day for the Africana studies department, folks. The department welcomes Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who is also the vice chairwoman of the Progressive Caucus and chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Task Force on Global HIV/AIDS, among other positions. And she's cool because she has the same last name as the Wildcat Perspectives editor. Anyway, Lee (Barbara, not Jessica) speaks tonight from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Integrated Learning Center, Room 120.
Grab some early lunch tomorrow so you can fit some entertainment into your schedule. Keyboard students from the UA School of Music and Dance will perform during an area recital in the Fine Arts Complex. Stop by the Holsclaw Recital Hall in the Music building at noon and witness the talents of UA's in-training musicians.

If you want to make an impact on lives in the Tucson community, what better cause to support than the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation. The Seventh Annual "One More Victory, Ara!" Celebrity Golf and Gala Benefit takes place this weekend. Today, the Gala Dinner and Silent Auction are on tap beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tickets cost $250 for the event, and it will be held at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa. For more information, contact Glen Shepard at 577-5106.
Movies are always a good time. Check out the International Arts Society Film Series presentation of "Never Cry Wolf." The movie portrays a timid scientist sent to northern Canada to study effects of the wolf population on caribou. The scientist begins to adopt the canines' behaviors and finds some interesting inner revelations. The flick begins at 7:30 p.m. and plays in the Modern Languages auditorium. For more information, contact Charles Scruggs at 621-3527, e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Web site at http://www.coh.arizona.edu/COH/CALENDAR/filmseries/iasSpring2002.htm.
Another more serious movie plays tonight in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering auditorium. "My Left Breast," a film by Gerry Roger, looks at her life battling cancer, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other difficulties involved. The Lesbian Looks Film Series feature presentation is preceded by "Body Burden," a lyrical essay that weaves together the author's meditations on her own illness and the relationship between pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
