Sac State's Center on Race, Immigration and Social Justice will host a multimedia virtual art exhibit titled "Un/Equal Freedoms: Expressions for Social Justice" today! The exhibit will have 32 multimedia works with the theme of "unequal freedom" — the systemic and social inequalities faced by marginalized communities.

The works range from spoken word poetry to photography, and the exhibit is free to the public.

6 Songs To Quit Your Job To: Khalil’s Virtual Venue

Music beat writer Khalil Bourgoub blessed us with another segment of his column, "Khalil's Virtual Venue." Here, Khalil shares music around a theme, moods, events and more.

In this week's edition, Khalil was feeling inspired after recently quitting his service job. With graduation season upon us and the pandemic being dampened by vaccinations, many of our readers might be doing the same. 

Tune in to this playlist as you walk out of your job for the last time.

Level Up with Shelby: EA’s botched vow against racism
I had to guys. I had to do another spicy take on the gaming community! In my column, "Level Up with Shelby," I touch on video game-related topics, news and my takes on the gaming community.

This time, I focused on EA's FIFA franchise, its history with racism, and what the company should be doing to save its community.

Read more about racism in the gaming community and why video game companies aren't helping the problem.
Does ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ ending mean an MCU ‘reboot’?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is changing, and our copy editors are here to debate if that change is good or bad. Editor in Chief-elect Jordan Parker and copy editor Alex Muegge are breaking down all the new MCU developments and how they affect the storyline of the franchise.

We also want to hear from you: is the MCU being rebooted? Vote in our poll at the end of the article to let us know.

Read more about the changes to the franchise and how our copy editors feel about the shift.
REVIEW:  'The Mitchells vs. The Machines' is fittingly eccentric and heartfelt
Opinion writer Bradley Hinkson reviews the animated film "The Mitchells vs. The Machines."

The film follows themes of parents sending kids off into the real world and the emotional experience that provides but also deals with the robot apocalypse. This not-so-perfect family's last road trip is now a trip to save the human race! From the animation to the comedy, you will love the film just as much as Bradley!

Read more about Bradley's review on "The Mitchells vs. The Machines" and why he loved it so much!

You made it to the bottom of the newsletter! This is Shelby Tolly giving y'all the best Opinion and A&E newsletter out there (in my mom's opinion)! I may sound like PBS here, but we are thankful for readers like you and the time you take into reading our articles and newsletters! You are part of our growth as journalists, and we are eternally thankful!

It is about that time where we start our finals. Its been a long semester — heck, a long year! But look at you! You are doing it! You are so strong and amazing for pulling through; I am proud of you! So proud in fact, I got you a little gift! Just a little something, just a little dad joke — nothing special (no refunds, sorry!).
