Women and race are the focus of Vanderbilt workshop next Saturday

Vanderbilt University Office of Intercultural Affairs


"A Heart-to-Heart Conversation on Culture, Race and Difference" screening of the documentary "The Way Home" written and directed by the filmmaker, Dr. Shakti Butler, in Oakland, California.

This workshop is designed to engage in conversation women who are interested in exploring issues of race and ethnicity as they intersect with gender, class and difference.

The film provides viewers the opportunity to glimpse intimate conversations within groups of women representing various cultures and ethnic groups such as Asian, Arabic, African American, Jewish, Latina, Native American, White, and those of Mixed Race, who came together to engage in a heart-to-heart talk about how their life is impacted by the racial issues of American culture. A discussion will follow the screening.
