Cultural Thursday

The next free Cultural Thursday program at Central Lakes College, Brainerd, will be a journey through Uganda and South Africa at noon on Dec. 2 in Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus. Scheduled presenters for the 50-minute public program are CLC students Dennis Musasizi from Uganda and Bradley Van der Zandt of South Africa. Musasizi will talk not only about the culture of Uganda but also describe his early life in an orphanage there as well as his journey to the United States. He is able to discuss several cultures of East Africa if time allows. He is not part of any international student program but rather attends CLC as a locally adopted individual. Van der Zandt is a student at CLC for one year through the Community College for International Development program, which is sponsoring nine students at CLC this year. The program is sponsored by the Resource Center for Cultures and Languages of the Americas (RCCLA) at Central Lakes College.
