About The Color of Fear (Part I): Race Through Eight Men’s Eyes

The Color of Fear (Part I): Race Through Eight Men’s Eyes

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 ago. Join RACE TALKS as we explore this 3-part documentary series September-November.

Part IRACE through 8 Men’s Eyes

The Color of Fear is an insightful film about the state of race relations in America as seen through the eyes of eight North American men of Asian, European, Latino and African descent. In a series of intelligent, emotional and dramatic confrontations, the men reveal the pain and scars that racism has caused them. What emerges is a deeper sense of understanding and trust. This is the dialogue most of us fear, but hope will happen sometime in our lifetime.

Race Talks: Opportunities for Dialogue

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.
