In 1995, The Oprah Winfrey Show featured Lee Mun Wah and his
groundbreaking film The Color of Fear, which gives an in-depth look into
the state of race in America. In the era of Black Lives Matter, Gay Pride and
chants of “Send them back,” with the urgency for racial reconciliation
heightened, the film’s commentary is just as poignant today as it was 25 years
II: Walking Each Other Home
Join us for a screening of, The Color of Fear (Part 2): Walking
Each Other Home, an insightful film about the state of race relations in
America as experienced by North American men of African, Asian, European and
Latinx descent. In 1994, Director Lee Mun Wah brought together this diverse
group to dialogue about a wide range of topics--all under the umbrella of 'race
relations in America'. Through the series of intelligent, emotional and
dramatic discussions, the men reveal the pain and scars that racism has caused
them. What emerges is a deeper sense of understanding and trust. Race Talks
will explore this 4-part documentary series September – January 2020.
This series deals with race in Oregon, both historically and up to the present time, to provide learning experiences that support the development of racial identity and sensitivity.
Each month, Kennedy School hosts a presentation on a different topic of ethnicity and racial elements in Oregon history, given by educators and/or experts in the topic at hand. The aim is to provide educational and learning experiences that support the development of intercultural sensitivity and racial identity.
