When and Where is the Event?
Event Date: Saturday, November 9, 2013 - 2:00pm
From the Travyon Martin murder trial, to racist responses to the Cheerios commercial staring an interracial couple, recent media events illustrate that the U.S is definitely not post-racial. Join BHS in exploring critical questions relating to multicultural and multiracial identity. We'll discuss big questions like: How do we perform and display our identities? How does media, film, art, humor and photography shape and mediate mixed-race identity?
Panelists will start the conversation and we hope you’ll join in.
