Lantern Festival

The Chinese Lantern Festival is back at the Fairplex in Pomona from Nov. 21 to Jan. 3.

The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday every week.

‘Facing our Truth’

The theater department will present “Facing Our Truth: Short Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege” over the course of two weekends.

The short plays allow the audience a glimpse into what it means to grow up black in America, as well as providing an opportunity for guests to engage with one another regarding the injustices America is facing today.

The play will run at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Nov. 21-23, along with a 2 p.m. matinée showing Nov. 24, in the Dailey Theatre.

There is a suggested donation of $1 for students at the door.
