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 of 2019.
Part II: Walking Each Other Home
The sequel to The Color of Fear is about the remaining 23
hours that occurred on that incredible three-day weekend in Ukiah, California. The
Color of Fear was an intense emotional confrontation about racism, whereas Walking
Each Other Home explores in greater depth the intimate relationship that
the eight men had with each other. In this sequel, the European American men have
added opportunities to express how they felt when the men of color were angry,
why they were afraid, and what they discovered about themselves and each other
as men of European descent.
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.
