San Diego City College World Cultures presented a screening of “The City’s Champions,” a documentary made by alumnus David Pradel.

The documentary followed the Knights’ journey to the 2017 California State Championship and also honors one of the players, Nate Edwards.

Edwards took his own life in 2017, which impacted his family, championship teammates and the City College community.

About a dozen people attended the event, including coach Mitch Charlens and Cassandra Edwards, Nate’s mom.

The documentary was very hard and emotional for some people to sit through.

Those in attendance could hear sniffles and chuckles throughout the auditorium when the documentary showed Darien McClain making the winning shot in the final seconds of the game and the documentary’s ability to capture who Nate Edwards was.

Human issues, experiences displayed on stage at New Play Festival

 
The City College play festival found success in its opening two nights.


 
By Angel Cazares, Staff Writer

San Diego City College students have had the opportunity to write and submit plays to the New Play Festival to be showcased to audiences on campus during the past four years. This year’s plays touched on subjects like drugs, family and what it means to lose someone close.

“The plays were submitted by December,” said Matthew Salazar-Thompson, one of the three directors. “Then myself, Emmelyn Thayer and Farrell Foreman, choose the plays. There were about 45 plays this year and we chose the six that we thought were the most diverse and spoke to not only social topics but what speaks to our humanity.”
