“Series of eight Workshops presented by Rob Canfield and Mary Molinary.

Black on Screen: Race and Cinema

Have you ever wondered how we got here and why we just can’t we (sic) seem to “get past race?” What is shaping the way we see, think about and act towards each other? In this series, we’ll watch 8 films and explore how race is portrayed in films from around the world. We’ll talk about how what we see on the screen shapes the way we look at and related (sic) to each other. You’ll go away with new insights, a new vocabulary and new tools to use as you work for justice in your own life, workplace and community. Plus, you’ll never watch the movies in the same way again.”
