About Race Reels Milton
Race Reels Milton is a free film series that will screen documentaries tackling race/culture issues in America.
This series aims to spur dialogue among Milton community members and develop an audience that will tackle difficult conversations on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) histories and experiences. Trained facilitators will run the post-film discussions to evolve the understanding of racial justice in our community.
Why We Need Race Reels in Milton
Milton is a microcosm of America- a diverse town comprising people of different races and cultural backgrounds. With the pervasive racism that continues to erode our nation’s moral fiber, it’s vital for communities such as Milton to do the hard work of extinguishing bigotry and intolerance. Race Reels documentaries will offer rich insight on racial issues that affect BIPOC. By unpacking issues through post-film conversations, we hope we can work toward an equitable community where racial and cultural differences are respected and recognized.
If you are interested in sponsoring Race Reels Milton, please reach out to Heidi Vaughan ([email protected]) and Thato Mwosa ([email protected]). Race Reels is an initiative of the Milton Anti-Racist Coalition in collaboration with the Forbes House Museum and supported by the Milton Public Library.
