They are bridging the gap between Friday and Monday by consistently providing weekend food packages to children identified as food insecure, in a compassionate and dignified manner. Please wear comfortable clothing and close-toed shoes. The food packaged will be delivered the next day by BHP volunteers to local elementary schools. There, school guidance counselors will discreetly place the packages in children’s backpacks so those students can return to school Monday fully nourished and ready to learn.Due to the nature of the work that we do, no one under the age of 14 is allowed in the warehouse. Volunteers are encouraged to donate food items from the Most Wanted List: Canned Tuna, Canned Chicken, Granola Bars, Protein Bars, Single-Serve Cereal Boxes, Fruit Snacks, Applesauce Pouches, and Juice Boxes. While participating in off-campus events and meetings sponsored by the JHAA/JHM/JHHS participants must follow all public health guidelines mandated by the local jurisdiction and venue at the time of the event, including vaccination and masking and distancing guidance.

February 15, February 15, Thursdayfilm, DC, Washington DC, AAP, Amazon, Silver Dollar Road, Raoul PeckFrom Academy-Award Nominee Raoul Peck, Silver Dollar Road follows the story of the Reels family as told by the matriarch Mamie Reels Ellison and her niece Kim Renee Duhon, two fierce and clear-eyed women fighting to valiantly safeguard their ancestors' land and their brothers and uncles Melvin and Licurtis, who were wrongfully imprisoned for eight years, the longest sentence for civil contempt in North Carolina history. The acclaimed documentary, based on a 2019 ProPublica article, reveals one family's experience of fighting predatory real estate developers who work in blatant and subtle ways to strip Black families of inherited property. The film demonstrates how the legal system has been exploited to keep Black land ownership fragile and the racial wealth gap growing. Peck, who previously directed the Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro, tells a global story of land rights as human rights, giving voice to people who face displacement from their ancestral home.Following the film, there will be a panel with director Raoul Peck in conversation with:The Honorable Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus InstituteLizzie Presser, journalist at ProPublicaMarcus A.R. Childress, former investigative counsel to the House Select Committee to investigate the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and partner at Jenner & BlockThese distinguished panelists will discuss how the case of the Reels family in North Carolina illustrates a national problem at the intersection of heirs' property law, structural discrimination and barriers to intergenerational wealth.This screening was made possible thanks to the Johns Hopkins Advanced Academic Programs Graduate Film and Media Program, as part of the effort to bring award-winning filmmakers, and "Stories that Matter" — new works that challenge and engage across scientific, social and/or cultural themes — to Johns Hopkins and its surrounding communities.This event is free. A reception with director Raoul Peck, with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, to follow./event/screeningsilverdollarroad

Odyssey Virtual February 08, February 8, ThursdayOdyssey, Virtual, Patricia Benesh, AI for Creative Writers: Brainstorming with the BotCourse Title: AI for Creative Writers: Brainstorming with the BotInstructor:Dr. Patricia Benesh, Ed '75(Cert), '77(ED.d), '80 (MA) '83 (MA)Brought to you by Odyssey   February 08, 2024 - February 22, 2024 (3 Sessions)  Thursday,  5PM ET  Virtual via Zoom  Offered as part of the Spring 2024 Odyssey Alumni Academy - courses exclusively for alumni and taught by esteemed members of our alumni community and faculty. Course Description: AI is a powerful research and brainstorming tool for creative writers. With all the hysteria and hype about generative artificial intelligence, it’s important to learn what it is, its capabilities and limitations, and how to use it effectively and ethically. Like other computer programs, AI is susceptible to “garbage in/garbage out.” The key to efficient use is to provide AI with the data it needs for proper brainstorming. The course focuses on a system for identifying the building blocks of your creative writing, and then using that information to create specific prompts. With specific prompts, AI generates the brainstorming responses that spark ideas for your creative writing. In three 90-minute sessions, learn to brainstorm regarding your genre, setting, plot development, character development, style, and pace. To sharpen your skills in each of these topics, you are shown examples from classic novels in the public domain. In learning how to identify and communicate your creative writing building blocks, you create a solid foundation for your material. With this solid foundation, brainstorming with the bot is easy, fun, and effective. The power is in your prompt.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Johns Hopkins Tuition Remission Policies  Johns Hopkins alumni, staff, faculty and their spouse or domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission for Odyssey lifelong learning courses.
