THE U.S. TOUR: Bringing Cracking the Codes events to Chicago, Boston, Oakland, Seattle and YOUR COMMUNITY.

  • CRACKING THE CODES COMMUNITY FILM/DIALOGUE EVENT: Film segments are braided with facilitated dialogue. In this evening event, hundreds of people 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 FORUM: Film/Dialogue Events are immediately followed by a day-long forum with Shakti Butler. A forum 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” , comes a new 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 online racial justice curriculum accompanies the film. It bridges the gap between inspiration and democratic action that supports racial equity.
