Anthropology dept. continues Understanding Race series with documentary viewing, discussion

Last year, the Anthropology Department began a series of events focused on race, known as #understandingrace. This series will continue on Wednesday, Oct. 24. Join us in viewing the documentary, The Loving Generation, beginning at 4 p.m. in Le Café (Morris Conference Center), followed by a discussion.

In 1967, the Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia, overturned all laws outlawing interracial marriage. The Loving Generation tells the story of a generation of Americans born to one black parent and one white parent. Their narratives provide a fascinating and unique window into the borderland between “blackness” and “whiteness,” and, in some cases, explode fixed ideas about race and identity.

Refreshments will be provided. This event is supported by Student Development and Campus Enhancement.
