Fred and Jeff lovingly harass Jonathan Mabry, Director of Community Engagement at the Univerity of Arizona College of Social & Behavioral Sciences.
He talks about the upcoming, 6th Annual Downtown Lecture Series, SOUNDSCAPES. Music, Place, and Identity.
The program is every Thursday in October and features professors from the U of A talking about how a place influences the music and culture.
He also talks about the Community Classroom project that targets folks who look at life as an educational continuum.
Set in drought-plagued Northern California in 1976, The Divide chronicles the story of Sam Kincaid (King), an aging rancher with a failing memory, his estranged and independent-minded daughter, Sarah, and Luke, a young ranch hand who finds himself in the midst of a family in crisis. Internal struggles, the realities of an unforgiving landscape, and the need to reconcile a long-ago tragedy collide to create the backdrop for this classic American Western. – Jana Brown
