Building a Just World: A Campus/Community Film Series

The grant supports a film series to show three popular films on social justice to coincide with important commemorative events:  Windtalkers/Veterans Day/Native American Heritage Month; Selma/Martin Luther King Day; Suffragette/Women’s History Month.  An interactive panel discussion with the audience will follow each film.  Panelists will include at least one faculty member and one community member with expertise on the topic. Campus and community discussions of these films will promote civic education and civil discourse on of social justice issues today. Discussions of these films will also prompt participants to reflect on the principles of justice they hold most deeply and how they apply to the social justice issues raised in the films.
