Join us for the feature-length documentary I’m Not Racist… Am I?, followed by an engaging discussion with filmmaker Catherine Wigginton Greene. The film follows 12 teenagers from New York City who come together for one school year to talk about race and privilege, both with each other and with friends and family. While none of the teens think that the racial rules of their parents’ generation apply to them today, we see how these difficult conversations challenge them to look within. By the end of their time together, these courageous young people arrive at a more significant definition of racism—one that’s bigger, perhaps, than any of us have ever imagined.
