Anti-Racist Film Series

The Anti-Racist Film Series is an effort to cultivate anti-racist thought, action and pedagogy by examining race, structural and systemic racism, belonging, identity, and other themes through the medium of film. The series is designed to give participants different perspectives on issues of the day, as well as educate them on different aspects of anti-racist thought.

Participants will screen the films on their own time. Then, participants will meet to discuss the film. Presenters will present briefly on each film before opening discussion. Supplementary materials will be provided for further watching and reading. Supplementary materials, and links for the films and the Zoom meetings will be sent to registrants in advance of the discussion sessions. As a result, registration is required
