Load remaining images On Wednesday, December 13, drummer Jaimoe took the stage with Jasssz Band at The Iridium Jazz Club for his monthly residency in New York City. The original Allman Brothers Band member is one of two surviving founders with us today, and any chance to see him is beyond special. During his concert performance, which included Allman Brothers tunes and classic jazz/blues covers, Jaimoe addressed the recent announcement from Dickey Betts that he plans to tour in 2018. While the decision was pending for quite some time, Jaimoe tells the audience how he called the former ABB guitarist/singer/songwriter and urged him to do what he does best: play live music.

The Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL) Conference will take place this weekend at Saint Mary’s College. “This year’s conference focuses on the themes of leadership, women, intercultural studies and the intersection between them,” said Mana Derakhshani, a College faculty member helping to organize the conference. These ideas will be explored at the conference through various speakers, roundtable discussions, panels and workshops. The conference is hosted by the Center for Women’s Intercultural Studies and will start today and continue through Saturday. Beverly Tatum, president of Spellman College, a historically black college for women, will be the keynote speaker. She will give a presentation entitled “Educating Tomorrow’s Global Women Leaders” tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the O’Laughlin Auditorium. Tatum has made a career out of women’s education, written several books and is an expert on race and identity, Derakhshani said. “She epitomizes in many ways the various themes of the conference”, she said. Derakhshani emphasized how the CWIL Conference’s themes related to everyday life. “Some of the presenters and most of the participants are not professors or academia. They bring together theory and practice,” she said. “The conference is a place to share ideas, to learn about innovative projects and theories or how people are dealing with these issues in research and practice.” She encouraged students to attend the conference.
