The Let's Get Reel: Intersectional Race Film Discussion Series seeks to explore how filmmakers from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences make meaning of their various social identities through the lens of race. How does education, religion, national origin, generation, socioeconomic status, ability status, sexual orientation and gender identity get impacted by our racialized realities here in the U.S. and globally? How can films be tools for disrupting harmful images and false narratives? How can filmmakers help us imagine new pathways to achieve equity, justice and collective liberation for all of humanity?
A Webex Event link will be posted here in advance of the film discussion.
This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Alumni Engagement.
All UMBC undergrads, grads, staff, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to attend! For any questions, please contact Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion, & Belonging at firstname.lastname@example.org.
