Unity360 Critical Race Film Series: Get Out
This series explores popular films through a critical lens in order to assess their overt and implicit messaging in regards to race. Films help shape our societal view, so we will be excavating the tricks and treats in our featured film selections – do they subvert negative stereotypes and tropes or uphold structural racism? Join Lutze Segu, Brittany King, and Heather Burdick, from the relative safety of your own home, as they lead you through an online viewing and exploration of the genre-redefining Jordan Peele modern horror classic, Get Out. This program is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with Soth Florida People of Color.
