SCHEDULE FOR SPRING 2015 FILM SERIES:

RACE:  THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION

 


"The Difference Between Us”

This film challenges the notion that race is biologically/genetically based and examines some of the reasons why, despite a lack of scientific evidence, the concept of race stubbornly endures.

"The Story We Tell”

An eye-opening account of how social inequalities came to be rationalized as natural on the basis of race, this film exposes  the social practices and public policies that benefited whites at the expense of others.

Wednesday, March 11 @ 10:00 – 11:30 in HUM 112

"The House We Live In”

Focusing not on individual attitudes and behavior but on the ways our institutions and policies privilege some groups at the expense of others, this film looks at the "unmarked" race: white people. We see how white people accrue benefits almost invisibly, not necessarily because of merit or hard work, but because of the racialized nature of our laws, courts, customs, and how those affect housing.

Wednesday, April 15 @ 12:00 – 1:30 in HUM 112
