Activism Project Proposal Week 4

Hello All,

I am proposing to do a video night at the Black Cultural Center on Violence Against Women in particular women of color. I am currently the educational chair for the Black Student Union. I am completely open to any suggestions on movies or documentaries people can provide. I am hoping to also prepare some discussion questions in regards to the video we watch. It seems pretty straight forward I just need to find the materials that will facilitate an open and honest dialogue and support women of color and women in general...

Good idea! If you want to use the DVD that we started to watch today and its companion DVD which aims to engage men in preventing violence against women, you are welcome--they were both made in Chicago and include a more racially diverse array of characters than your typical educational video. I don't know any popular culture, Hollywood films off hand that could help illuminate the concepts, but perhaps your classmates can come up with some ideas??
