SNEAK PREVIEW and DISCUSSION of an episode from California Newsreel’s forthcoming PBS series scrutinizing the idea of race, “RACE – THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION.”
A RECEPTION honoring the historians featured in and advising the series will follow the screening.
“SNEAK PREVIEW” SCREENING: Episode 3 – “The House We Live In”
Just because race isn’t biological doesn’t mean it isn’t real. This is the first film to uncover how race lives not in biology but in the social institutions and practices that have historically advantaged white people.
RECEPTION will follow the discussion. Hosted by California Newsreel
FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 3:30
Memphis Convention Center L-7/L-9
