We never show the film without a post-screening dialogue facilitated by someone from our Point Made Learning team because we want communities to dig into this work together. And we think a good story can start the conversation.
Point Made Antiracism Workshops – Using Stories to Inspire Dialogue
[tweetshareinline tweet=”Interrupting racism becomes impossible in a climate of defensiveness and blame.” username=”PM_Learn”] But watching young people dig into the hard work of learning about systemic racism – and then talking about it with others – can motivate all of us to do better. That’s what we hope to accomplish during screenings and discussions of our documentary film – I’m Not Racist… Am I? (we call it INRAI – ‘In-Rye’ – for short) which followed a diverse group of teens and their families through a yearlong exploration of race and racism.
Check out this video of one of our workshops. You’ll see filmmakers and dialogue facilitators Catherine Wigginton Greene and André Robert Lee use INRAI as the foundation for leading powerful and productive discussions about race and racism among adults and teens – focusing not on who’s to blame, but on how we can take collective responsibility to start making real change.
