7:30 PM - Rm 216 Living/Learning Commons
A brief discussion of the themes follows each screening.
About the film: Exploring race and racism in the U.S, White Like Me looks through the lens of whiteness and white privilege, based on the work of anti-racist educator Tim Wise.
About the Social Justice Film Series: Brought to you by the Center for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2014 Social Justice Film Series theme is "Colorblind / Colorbind" and offers participants an educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse issues of race, its invisibility, limitations and the privileging of certain racial identities in society. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have one viewing and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does not exceed ninety minutes.
