KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Michael Tubbs

12:30 p.m., Portsmouth Campus Student Center, Multipurpose room

Michael Tubbs is back by popular demand after his appearance during TCC’s 2014 Black History Month observance. In 2012, Tubbs, at 22, was elected the youngest member of the Stockton (Calif.) City Council. His political campaign, “Reinvent Stockton,” caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey, who donated $10,000. The documentary “True Son,” which follows the Stockton native through several months of campaigning and ultimate victory, debuted at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. The son of a teenage mother and an incarcerated father, Tubbs has defied bleak odds as a young, black male in a troubled community.

Film: “In the Heat of the Night”

2 p.m., TCC Roper Performing Arts Center

The Roper Center will present the Academy Award-winning film “In the Heat of the Night” followed by a panel discussion, “From the Film to Ferguson: 50 Years Later.” “In the Heat of the Night,” based on John Ball’s 1965 novel, takes place in America during the 1960s as the country grappled with integration and an evolving acceptance of the Civil Rights Movement. The novel and film crossed fraught political lines, marking one of the first times in a motion picture an African American man reacted to – rather than accepted – provocation from a white man. The film won five Academy Awards and spawned a hugely popular television series.
