Black Lives Matter Film Series
Join us for two PBS series: Many Rivers to Cross (series of six parts) and Race: The Power of an Illusion (series of three parts), facilitated by John Harris and Tina Horn. Each session can be attended independently.
Race: The Power of an Illusion
The division of the world’s peoples into distinct groups – “red,” “black,” “white” or “yellow” peoples – has became so deeply imbedded in our psyches, so widely accepted, many would promptly dismiss as crazy any suggestion of its falsity. Race – The Power of an Illusion questions the very idea of race as biology, suggesting that a belief in race is no more sound than believing that the sun revolves around the earth.
Yet race still matters. Just because race doesn’t exist in biology doesn’t mean it isn’t very real, helping shape life chances and opportunities.
