The Cultural Lens: Film & Speaker Series introduces films, scholars, authors, artists and activists to campus to address various topics and how those topics are being defined and portrayed through the media. Using these illustrations, the goal is to explore and drive discussion on the film’s accuracy, while addressing legitimized myths and barriers along the road to finding common ground.
