Roosevelt @ Mason presents a panel and discussion
Technicolor Was Never Meant to be So White
Tuesday, February 27
7 pm, JC Cinema
Since the #OscarsSoWhite campaign emerged two years ago after only white actors were recognized by the Academy for two years in a row, racial diversity in film has been a hot topic in both the media and film industry. “Technicolor Was Never Meant to be So White” will be a panel and discussion about the issue of the lack of racial diversity in film. Scheduled on February 27, a week before the Oscars, this event will center on the causes and effects of a lack of racial diversity in film. With panelists from ODIME, the Communication Department, and the Spanish Language Department, this event will examine the social, historical, and political aspects of diversity in film, and discuss how this issue can be improved in the future.
