At Jarman Auditorium
Organized by Citizen Leadership and Social Justice Education
Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend a film screening of the landmark documentary I'm Not A Racist…Am I and participate in a facilitated discussion following the film. This feature documentary examines how the this and future generations are going to confront the difficult issue of racism in America by following 12 teens from New York City as they come together for one school year to talk about the dynamics of race and privilege in a series of workshops and in conversations with friends and family members. This must see film and subsequent discussion will provide students with the language and tools necessary to engage in difficult conversations and provide a means to build empathy, understanding, and unity. The film is being screened over the course of the week, so you have a number of opportunities to be a part of this important event.
Admission is free and open to the public, but registration (https://form.jotform.com/82915915263159) is required. Come join us for this enlightening and uplifting event. This event is sponsored by Longwood University's Department of Social Work, Center for Faculty Enrichment (CAFÉ), the University Diversity Council, the Office of Citizen Leadership and Social Justice Education, and the Robert Russa Moton Museum.
