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.

“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

Experience LA

“ 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.”

“Excellent condensation of the Pentagon Papers”

I liked the group/team work; we got to know each other better and each character involved in the [events]

An informative, engaging, and challenging class. Enjoyed it immensely!

Fascinating demonstration of events leading up to 9/11, focusing [on] conflict within U.S. government.

Instructor provided a script, and the class played the roles. Novel teaching experience.

Best class so far!
