Digging Deep in Diversity Series

Great discussions, sharing perspectives, and celebrating our community was all part of our Diversity Series Forum on Jan. 18. Many thanks to Lenny Walker from Point Made Films for presenting the movie “I’m Not Racist.. Am I?” and encouraging students to be aware of their feelings, speak from experience, ask questions, and dig deeper. “The whole point is to get everyone talking,” he said during the morning’s training with faculty. “Talking about racism can be uncomfortable and hard, but you can do it. And asking questions will help you. Call people in, not out.” Following the film, students and faculty divided into small groups to reflect upon the film and to discuss their own definitions of race, racism, prejudice, ethnicity, and bigotry. The day concluded with a wonderful and diverse showcase of dance, song, and poetry by our talented students.
