LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS
Light in the Shadows: Staying at the Table When the Conversation about Race Gets Hard records a frank dialogue among two white women and several women of color. The film uses their conflict as a learning tool to illumine how conversations on race often break down along lines of race and power. What lies behind it is a perspective on race that is often unseen/ unnoticed within the dominant culture. With clear language, open hearts and a willingness to engage – even when it gets hard – these women travel over roads that demonstrate why valuable discourse on race is so laden with emotion, distrust and misunderstanding.
Light in the Shadows is a springboard for critical self-inquiry and inter-ethnic dialogue.
"Breathtakingly frank conversation."
