City of Hope set up at Gold Dome, goal to raise $1 million for Haitian relief

About a dozen associated with Centenary and Shreveport's First United Methodist Church started a symbolic tent city Wednesday in front of the Gold Dome in hopes of raising awareness and $1 million for Haitian relief after the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook the country more than a week ago. Known as Cite Lespwa, or "City of Hope" in Haitian Creole, the group will camp out through Tuesday.

City of Hope

The idea comes from 2009 Centenary graduate Britney Winn, a missionary to Haiti who just returned from there Saturday. Most in the United States have conveniences and basic necessities that many people in Haiti no longer have.

"There are tent cities emerging all over Haiti," said 22-year-old Winn, a Haynesville native and 2009 Centenary graduate. "Since (Port-au-Prince) is leveled, there's no place for survivors to live."

Shreveport's tent dwellers plan to call and visit businesses to seek donations. Activities at the tent city will include a concert Saturday. Anyone can join the group: just bring a tent, camping gear and food. Water will be supplied, and Centenary will provide bathrooms and showers.

Cite Lespwa

To help the group reach their goal, a donation table will be set up in front of Centenary College's Gold Dome. Donations also may be made at the Christian Leadership Center office on the second floor of the Smith Building or by visiting the First United Methodist Church, Shreveport’s website at www.fumcshreveport.org.

You can also watch LIVE video of the campers courtesy of KTBS Channel 3, and view photos from the Picasa photo gallery.

Centenary College's Forum Presents Should Some Art Be Censored? March 1

The Forum, an annual event that examines a social issue in open-to-the public sessions, will address "Should Some Art Be Censored?" during a two-part public series beginning Monday, March 1.

Should Some Art Be Censored?

Philosopher and author Dr. Cynthia Freeland, chair of the Philosophy Department at the University of Houston, will discuss the issue of the intersection of art and morality beginning at 7 p.m. in Kilpatrick Auditorium in the Smith Building on the College campus. She argues that if some art is so bad, so immoral, should it be censored?

The Forum will then present the second part of the Forum on Monday, March 8, also at 7 p.m. in Kilpatrick Auditorium in the Smith Building. This will be a follow-up to Dr. Freeland’s presentation when a group of Centenary students and members of the Shreveport Times’ Citizen Editorial Board will continue the discussion that Dr. Freeland began the previous week. A question and answer period will follow.

Both events are free and open to the public. For further information, contact Dr. Chris Ciocchetti, associate professor of philosophy, at 318.869.5246 or visit the Forum web page at www.centenary.edu/forum.
