Join with Dr. Curtis Sartor and the Black Student Union for a Movie Discussion on February 27 at 6 p.m. in the Thulin Performance Hall to close out Black History Month.
The film will be “Drawn Together: Comics, Diversity and Stereotypes,” which brings together three talented artists—a Sikh, a woman, and an African American—who are challenging the racist stereotyping currently endemic in America through their work. The documentary provides the rare opportunity to explore the subjects of race, gender, and religion stereotyping through the universally popular medium of comic books and cartoons. Drawn Together boldly encourages viewers to unlearn stereotyping, look beyond the obvious, and confront media prejudices—all through an uncommon and inherently engaging everyday source.
