Documentary Screening and Discussion: "I Am or How Jack Became Black"

Event Type: Adults
Date: 9/18/2017
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
Description:
 By the year 2050, at least 20% of all Americans will self-identify as two or more races. What will this fate mean to a nation that has been tormented by race throughout its history? Filmmaker Eli Steele journeyed out into the America of today, interviewed countless Americans of two or more races, explored racial controversies in the headlines, and used undercover cameras and blunt man--on--the--street interviews to achieve an unvarnished look at race in America from the perspective of a man with no allegiance to a single tribe. Writer and blogger, Lakshmi Iyer will lead a discussion after the film. This program supports the PA Forward Civic and Social Literacy Initiative.
