Film Explores Meanings of the n-Word in America | November 16 from 12-1:30 p.m.

Film Explores Meanings of the n-Word in America | News at Southern: "“Everyone has an n-word story,” says Journalism Professor Frank Harris III, and a couple of years ago, he set out on a journey across America to get to the bottom of the word’s meanings and place in American culture. The product of his research, the film “Journey to the Bottom of the n-Word,” combines interviews with diverse Americans, research through hundreds of newspaper archives, and surveys of today’s news media. In the film, Harris takes viewers on an informative, provocative journey that fosters discussion about “the word that persistently rattles the chain from our past to our present,” as he describes it.

On November 16 from 12-1:30 p.m., as part of Social Justice Week, Harris will screen his film and lead a discussion about it in the Adanti Student Center Theater."
