We are now parntering with a community group to have a film series in the
Fall and would love any suggestions for films to use.

In general, the goal of the Eracism Film & Discussion Series is to "heighten
awareness
and create a better understanding of the issues facing peple of color or
of minority ethinc backgrounds." During the four previous years the group
has shown four films each year, usually 3 documentaries and 1 popular film
on a
varity of topics that stimulates discussion. The discussion is facilitated
by a professional who
works in a related field. Last years films dealt with institutional racism.
The films average an hour long. The feature film is usually longer and
only part is shown.

Attendees come from all walks of life. We get a lot of students trying to
fulfill their "cultural awareness" assignment.

Thank you for your help.
