The Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium was set up for a fashion show Friday night.

The Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium may be the most flexible interior space in the city. We’ve seen it used for class lectures, film screenings, music concerts, and next week it will be the site for TEDx Syracuse University. Last night the venue was adapted for the 2014 Fashion and Beauty Communications Milestone Fashion Show.

Wonder if anyone has used it for a wedding ceremony yet?

The latest Social Media Breakfast (#SMB) was held at the Syracuse Media Group Headquarters last week. Panelists included Kim Brown (SU), Teri Weaver (Syracuse.com), Dan Pacheco (SU) and Tim Robertson (Time Warner Cable). The nearly hour discussion focused on journalism trends, open and closed networks, generating content, page views for pay, social media vs. legacy media, and the pending death of the traditional press release.

Due to time constraints Pacheco, who also did some ground-breaking work with drone technology at Syracuse University, didn’t get to talk about Google Glass with the group.

Griot Vanessa Johnson talked about activist Ella Baker during a lunch break for the Cold Case Justice Initiative Civil Rights Conference on Friday.

Sometimes the best part of a conference is at the edges, in-between the forums and formal program. Yesterday during the lunch break of the Cold Case Justice Initiative’s Looking Back, Moving Forward: 50th Anniversary Conference a rich meaningful and dialogue broke-out. This multi-generational instructional chat featured students, educators, panel participants and attorneys.  It was preceded by a lunchtime story-telling piece by Vanessa Johnson.

And truth be told, the conversation was sparked by a challenge laid down by Mr. Gil Caldwell.

They Came before Crossover

Author and Morehouse College journalism professor Ron Thomas spoke at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications last Thursday.

Morehouse College Sports and Journalism Program Director Ron Thomas spoke about the genesis of the NBA and how it was integrated during a visit to the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications on Thursday.

Ron Thomas shared stories from his book They Cleared the Lane with SU students and faculty this week. His exhaustive research highlights ballers such as Chuck Cooper, Bucky Lew and Cleo Hill.   Thomas, who grew up in Buffalo and went to college in Rochester,  is a former NBA beat-writer, turned author and educator. His talk was part of an event produced by Syracuse University’s Sports Media Center.

Thomas also posed one of the most clever sports trivia questions out there: Who was the NBA’s first player? (there’s more than one answer, so read the book)

On Friday, Thomas continued his labor of love by attending a ceremony in West Virginia that featured a tribute to Earl Lloyd.
