Dear colleague:

I am hoping to get your help in promoting the Center for Cultural Pluralism's Fall 2011 Social Justice Film Series. Our theme '(Un)covering Identities' offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse to engage issues of identity in its various forms, visible and invisible. Please see the attached flyer that outlines our Fall 2011 schedule. Please feel free to forward on your listservs, or even print out a copy and spread the word.

Coming up...next Wednesday! Our first film screening - Here are the details!

"People like us" (Part One)

When/Where: Wednesday, September 7th, 2011 at 12 PM (Allen House) and 7:30 PM (L/L Fireplace Lounge). Note: Each film will have two viewings.

Synopsis: Bud or Bordeaux? The choices you make reveal your class. Being middle-class, working-class, upper-class - its the 800-pound gorilla in American life that most Americans don't think about: How do income, family background, education, attitudes, aspirations, and even appearance mark someone as a member of a particular social class? Class can be harder to spot than racial or ethnic differences, yet in many ways, its the most important predictor of what kind of financial and educational opportunities someone will have access to in life.

Look forward to your help in promoting our program as well as your participation.

With deepest respect,

Dirk J. Rodricks
