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 III: What It’s Like to Be Gay
The Color of Fear III is an intimate conversation on the
issues of what it is to be gay in this society and the impact it has on the
men’s sense of safety and identity. Through their personal stories and
interactions, we have a glimpse into the fears, the stereotypes, and moral
issues that are dividing and confronting us today.
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.
