artpeaceiiThe Second Annual Art Peace, held by Allegany College of Maryland’s “Peace Studies Club”, is coming to Allegany Arts Council this week—August 19th to the 25th.

Frostburg State University’s Women Studies Program presents “’The Invisible War’: A Film Screening and Discussion” on Thursday, April 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the Lane University Center Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Filmmaker Kirby Dick created “The Invisible War,” a groundbreaking investigation about one of America’s most shameful secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem today; a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire.
