Over the course of eight months, sixty-four women representing a cross-section of cultures (Indigenous, African-American, Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian, European-American, Jewish, Latina, and Multiracial) came together to share their experience of racism in America. With uncommon courage, the women speak their hearts and minds about resistance, love, assimilation, standards of beauty, power, school experiences, and more. Their candid conversations offer rare access into multi- dimensional worlds invisible to outsiders. The abundance of photographs, dance, and music provides a sensual richness to this provocative piece. The Way Home is rich with stories and experiences that will provoke conversation, and is designed to be viewed and then discussed. This event is being hosted as part of a series put together in collaboration with the Montpelier Senior Center, consider join more of these curated events. It will include a short facilitated discussion following the film.
Advance registration is encouraged at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center office at 58 Barre Street or by calling their office at 223-2518. Space is limited. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and people age 25 and younger are not charged.
