1/11/17 More than 600 to Attend Suffolk Unity Day at Community College


More than 600 middle school and high school students will attend The Suffolk Center On The Holocaust, Diversity & Human Understanding (CHDHU) and Suffolk Human Rights Commission co-sponsored Unity Day on the Suffolk County Community College Michael J. Grant Campus, Brentwood, and Wednesday January 11, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The day’s theme is the power of words and symbols.

Students will view a Suffolk County Community College produced video, Fear, Hatred and Hope: The Power of Words and Symbols and feature keynote speakers Stony Brook University Clinical Assistant professor Robbye Kinkaid and Holocaust survivor, Werner Reich.

Students will also see theatrical performances by Hauppauge High School and North Babylon High School Theater students and attend workshop sessions by College and community leaders.

“During a time of increased incidents of hate speech and action on Long Island, the country and throughout the world, Unity Day has taken on the responsibility of teaching the hundreds of students who will attend the power that lies in acting with respect for others. There will be workshops on Hate Crimes and discrimination laws conducted by the Suffolk County Police Department Hate Crimes Unity and the Suffolk County Human Rights Commission. Students will learn what they can do in their schools, their families, and communities to create safe environments for themselves and others,” said Rabbi Dr. Steven Moss, chair, CHDHU.

Continuing the annual tradition, the students, faculty and staff at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts Center came together Wednesday to produce close to 150 traditional Thanksgiving dinners for the Dominican Sisters.  Our kitchen was in full production, with turkey being sliced, potatoes being mashed, vegetables being sorted and pie being cut.  The meals were carefully packaged in colorful boxes decorated by students from Aquebogue Elementary and Hampton Bays Elementary schools.  Several students from Westhampton High School joined in with the packaging of the meals.  This comprehensive community effort resulted in the opportunity for those less fortunate to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal.  The true spirit of Thanksgiving is alive and well here at Suffolk County Community College.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

Tony-Award Winning Actor, Ben Vereen to Give Master Class to Suffolk Theatre Arts Production of Hair


Ben Vereen

Selden, NY – Suffolk County Community College is pleased to announce that Tony-award winning actor, Ben Vereen, will offer a two-day master class to students in Suffolk County Community College’s Theatre Arts Program’s production of Hair on October 22nd and 23rd at 7:00 p.m. in the Shea Theatre of the Ammerman Campus in Selden. High school students interested in musical theatre and the college community are invited to observe the master class.

Ben Vereen shot to Broadway stardom with his starring role as Leading Player in Bob Fosse’s 1972 show Pippin, which won Vereen a Tony Award as best actor in a musical. Ben Vereen became a famously versatile song-and-dance man, a stage star who appeared occasionally in feature films and television. His most famous roles on TV include African slave Chicken George in the miniseries Roots (1977), Jeff Goldblum’s partner in the 1980 cop show Tenspeed and Brownshoe (Vereen was Tenspeed) and the grumpy police captain in Silk Stalkings (1991-1993). His feature films have included Funny Lady (1975, starring Barbra Streisand), All That Jazz (1979, also directed by Bob Fosse) and Idlewild (2006, starring Terrence Howard). In 1992, Ben Vereen was accidentally hit by a car driven by music producer David Foster in Malibu, California. The injuries seemed career-threatening, but the following year Vereen made a triumphal Broadway return in Jelly’s Last Jam. In the 1990s, Ben Vereen guest-starred on TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation as the father of engineer Geordi LaForge, played by LeVar Burton. In Roots, Ben Vereen played the grandson of another Burton character, Kunta Kinte.
