Dear Haverford People,
Hope you had a great weekend and a Happy Halloween.
In addition, I hope that by now you have heard of the new film out that tackles issues of race in institutions of higher learning. The film is called Dear White People and follows the experiences of 4 young black students in a fictional Ivy League school. The film traces the very different perspectives of these students as they work through their racial identities. The film lands on pressing issues of underrepresented youth of color, all leading up to the climactic outrage of an “African American themed” party where students show up to “release their inner Negro”. How do the characters respond when they are confronted with a sea of white students in blackface, fake chains and guns, and sipping “purple drank”?
Now is your chance to find out!
This Sunday (11/9) FAB has prepared a Blue Bus to the Bryn Mawr Film Institute for a showing! The bus be behind Stokes at about 3:45 and will leave at 3:50, This is NOT a Haverticket event. There are a limited number of seats but it is first come, first serve.
