"Latinos Beyond Reel" at the Jones Library


Thursday, December 4, 7 pm
Woodbury Room


Join us for a screening of Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype, the third in a film & discussion series to be held over the next several months which will look at issues of race.  A facilitated discussion will be held after the screening.

Latinos Beyond Reel examines how US news and entertainment media portray - and do not portray - Latinos.  The film challenges viewers to think critically about the wide-ranging effects of these media stereotypes, and to envision alternative representations and models of production more capable of capturing the humanity and diversity of real Latinos.

Free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact Janet Ryan at 413/259-3223


This film series is co-sponsored by the Jones Library and The Coming Together Project.  More information about The Coming Together Project can be found at http://www.coming-together.org/.
