FILM & EVENTS DESIGNED TO DEEPEN THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION ON RACE

BRING CRACKING THE CODES TO YOUR COMMUNITY.

  • CRACKING THE CODES COMMUNITY FILM/DIALOGUE EVENT: Film segments are braided with facilitated dialogue. In this 2.5 hour event, hundreds of people can engage in talking about the system of racial inequity prompted by the stories in the film Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity. People leave asking new questions and are inspired to engage in change.
  • RACIAL EQUITY WORKSHOP: Film/Dialogue Events can be immediately followed by a half-day or full-day forum with a World Trust workshop facilitator. A workshop capitalizes on the emotional impact of the film, Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity; and helps groups to deepen their understanding of the system of inequity and move to action.

THE FILM: From Shakti Butler, the director of “The Way Home: Women Talk About Race in America” and “Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible” , this film that asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequity. Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity features moving stories from racial justice leaders including Amer Ahmed, Michael Benitez, Barbie-Danielle DeCarlo, Joy DeGruy, Ericka Huggins, Humaira Jackson, Yuko Kodama, Peggy McIntosh, Rinku Sen, Tilman Smith and Tim Wise.

THE RACIAL EQUITY LEARNING MODULES: This racial justice curriculum is inspired by the film. It is used by facilitators and educators in a variety of institutions to bridge the gap between inspiration and democratic action that supports racial equity. See the modules HERE.
