Cracking the Codes

Join us watching Cracking the Codes, a film about racial inequality. After the film we’ll have the opportunity to discuss what we saw and heard, how it relates to our own experiences, how it may help us relate with the experiences of others, and perhaps what it inspires us to do or think differently.
Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequality
Tuesday, September 10 at 7:30pm at Maitri House.
Optional potluck beforehand
If you want to join us for dinner at 6:30pm, feel free to come and please bring a dish to share.

About the film:

From Shakti Butler, the director of “The Way Home: Women Talk About Race in America” and “Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible” , comes a new film that asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequity. Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity features moving stories from racial justice leaders including Amer Ahmed, Michael Benitez, Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo, Joy DeGruy, Ericka Huggins, Humaira Jackson, Yuko Kodama, Peggy McIntosh, Rinku Sen, Tilman Smith and Tim Wise.

You can see film clips or watch a trailer at the link above.
Can’t make it but wish you could?
After Tuesday, Cracking the Codes will become part of the NotJustSkin multimedia lending library, and will be available for others to borrow to watch at home and share with family and friends.
This is an open-invitation event that you’re free to share.
