Kenya in the Movies: The First Grader
Inspired by a true story, ‘The First Grader’ tells the moving story of an illiterate 84-year-old man, Kimani Ng’ange’a Maruge, who’s determined to be admitted into a primary school in rural Kenya. This emotional film takes viewers on a journey between Maruge’s experience of fatherhood, being a warrior in the Mau Mau rebellion against British colonialism, and his fortitude to read as an elder. Set on a remote mountain in the Kenyan bush, the film details how Maruge's battle to enter school challenges the beliefs of his community and ultimately proves the power of education. With several exuberant and eccentric performances, ‘The First Grader’ showcases the power, joy and perseverance of the human spirit.
‘The First Grader’ has received international acclaim and is now screening in select cities nationwide. For more information, please visit www.thefirstgrader-themovie.com.

The historic Santa Barbara Bowl was built in 1936 with WPA funds as an annual site for Old Spanish Days Fiesta. Now celebrating our 75th Anniversary year and the seventh year of the American Classic Campaign for the renovation and restoration of the Santa Barbara Bowl, we have raised $20,823,195 for improvements to date.
The Bowl Foundation has received a one-to-one $1,000,000 anonymous Matching Grant for the American Classic Campaign! This challenge requires the Campaign to raise $1,000,000 in new and increased pledges and gifts by June 30, 2011, which will generate an additional $1,000,000 from the anonymous foundation donor, producing a total of $2,000,000. All campaign contributions received between now and the deadline will qualify for this matching grant.
