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 – January 2020.
II: Walking Each Other Home
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.
