John Powers

Writer and director of dramatic material and coordinator of public performances, courses, and forums, John Powers (a.k.a. J-Powers) brings 12+ years experience in producing more than 200 events.

“Excellent condensation of the Pentagon Papers”

                               Daniel Ellsberg

“Like his previous programs on Japanese Americans in WWII and Chinese Americans, Watergate, Vietnam war...etc, John Powers' current series of public programs at El Camino College are wide ranging in their topics, succinctly organized, cogently presented, with articulate and outstanding experts on the topic of each program. The format is very Old School—with an emphasis on substance rather than gimmicks, and it sets a high standard for others who produce and participate in topical programs in the community. Bring yourselves and your family--especially students – for an educational and entertaining and affordable evening.”

-- Don Hata, Emeritus Professor of History, CSU Dominguez Hills

“ I experienced the events of 1968, and John Powers has brought to life some of the most significant of them through his unique, powerful, and deeply affecting series.  Everyone should see it.”

NEW COURSE 

 

9-11 RECONSIDERED

The events of September 11, 2001 are well-known to most people through horrific imagery and an official summary, the 9-11 Commission Report. But what if everything we know about 9-11 is wrong or incomplete? Would that change how we view these events, and how we view the world we live in today? What if we look at extensive photographic and video evidence (or the lack thereof) from the distance of more than 15 years and see September 11 in a whole new light? If you dare to think the “unthinkable,” join this reconsideration of the unforgettable events in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

This course is currently being offered by UCR Osher at both its Riverside campus and Rancho Mirage campus.
