Light in the Shadows
Tuesday March 20 | 6:30 PM
Documentary. Discussion to follow.
A 2017 follow up to The Way Home, Light in the Shadows is a frank conversation about race among ten women who participated in the original film. These American women of Indigenous, African, Arab/Middle Eastern, European, Jewish, Asian, Latina and Mixed Race descent, use authentic dialogue to crack open a critical door of consciousness. What lies behind it is a perspective on race that is often unseen/ unnoticed within the dominant culture. With clear language, open hearts and a willingness to engage – even when it gets hard – these women travel over roads that demonstrate why valuable discourse on race is so laden with emotion, distrust and misunderstanding. Part of the Showing Up for Racial Justice Film Series! Discussion facilitated by the Southern Maine chapter of Showing Up For Racial Justice.
