Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity delves into the internal components and external relationships that perpetuate the system of racial inequity. The Internal Components section of the film features Connie Heller describing the impact of bias on her family’s experience trying to check-in to a hotel. It is with powerful stories like Connie’s that the film Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity reframes the conversation about race in the U.S. to include systemic inequity. Connie, a philanthropist and activist explains her participation, “Cracking the Codes is particularly important as an educational tool because it reflects the complexity of marginalization and how it works at multiple levels—from individual to systemic—and how we must focus on working at all levels.” Cracking the Codes is designed for dialogue. Says Connie, “By using interviews, art and other modes of engaging material, Cracking the Codes supports the viewer’s capacity to have a rich, fulfilling and purposeful conversation on difficult topics, which ultimately will deepen their capacity as individuals to work for change in all of their spheres of influence.” Currently available for pre-order, the film Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity releases at the end of October.
