Feature Films to Open Up Conversations About Race in America: Green Book

While movies that deal with issues of race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, and sexual orientation, can serve as tools for creating opportunities for conversations, discussions, and learning, these conversations rarely happen organically. The purpose of this film series is to provide a forum for the College of Education community—faculty, staff, students—to come together to have conversations and to achieve a greater understanding of difference. This is the first of three movies that will be viewed and discussed this semester.

Pizza, popcorn, and soda will be provided.
