Technicolor Was Never Meant to Be So White

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Johnson Center, Cinema


The #OscarsSoWhite campaign emerged two years ago, after only white actors were recognized by the Academy for two years in a row. Since then, 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.



Panelists include: Michelle Allen from ODIME, Lisa Rabin from the Spanish Language Department, Dr. Richard Craig from the Communication Department, and Giovanna Chesler, Director of Film and Video Studies. .

Our discussion will examine the social, historical, and political aspects of diversity in film, and discuss how this issue can be improved in the future.

The discussion is sponsored by Roosevelt @ Mason, Film and Media Studies, Film and Video Studies, Communication, ODIME, and the Spanish Program
