Bob Casier passed away a few days after his 91st Birthday Party. He was a master teacher of political science and government, who influenced thousands of his students at SBCC and UCSB. He was a good friend, one who will be missed by all who know and love him.
ALAGIE came from a culture where homosexuals were considered the work of the devil and subject to jailing or the death penalty. As a student in the US Alagie posted 14 words in defense of gay rights. He suffered mightily as a result, but survived to become a fierce advocate for human rights.

Richard Ross, a UCSB professor and internationally known photographer has just published a book entitled, “Girls In Justice.” It follows his earlier work, “Juvenile In Justice.” ‘Girls’ documents his 3 year effort to capture images that are designed to change public policy about why and how we incarcerate girls in this country. His photos are stunning and disturbing. Each image contains a unique, personal, social and political ‘call to action.’
