Upcoming Events of Note for Santa Cruz, Nov. 4-9

November 4

Even though Africa is a huge continent, there's an incredible shortage of accurate information available about it. Thank heavens for national treasure Henry Louis Gates Jr., who will visit the Capitola Theater to talk about Africana and Wonders of the African World, two remarkable contributions to the understanding of this diverse land. Capitola Theater, 120 Monterey Ave., 7:30 pm, free tickets available at Book Cafe. 462.4415.

November 6

Once again there is proof that dancing can help save the world. Boogie the Knight Away, a four-hour dance fest complete with local DJs, will raise funds to fight the Knight Initiative--some of the most blatantly anti-gay legislation ever to come out of the Senate. Veterans Memorial Building, 846 Front St., 8pm, $5-$15 sliding scale. 761.9652.
