We Need Each Other
Together we can transform racism

Unearthing the Roots of our Educational System
Location: Willie Agee Playhouse fka Inglewood Playhouse
Profiling, stereotyping, discrimination, classism, social disparity, prejudice, and more all fall under the ugly word which has historically served to disenfranchise our nation’s cultural groups; racism. This centuries-strong nail in the coffin of society still exists today, perpetuating the very factors which hold us back from true progress, true unity.
This interactive forum, acts as an instrument of change, an outlet to shed light on the history of racism, its construct, how to deconstruct the “White Dream” and how to pave a way for our nation to move forward, while allowing you to share your thoughts and reservations in a safe and constructive environment. Whether personally faced with these issues or you know someone who is, we are all affected by racism and should all be encouraged to participate in this conversation.

Racism is the foundation of our American history. We cannot change history. We CAN change us.
When we are willing to have the uncomfortable conversation we are demonstrating an act of love and caring far beyond our need to be right, or superior, or as good as, or recognized. Understanding can transform racism.

The Long Shadow
Filmmaker Frances Causey investigates the roots of racism.
In this powerful documentary, the filmmakers, both privileged daughters of the South, who were haunted by their families slave owning pasts, passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories of how America—guided by the South’s powerful political influence—steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy.
"Written and directed by a white woman who was born and raised in the south, the film is a first hand look at the racial divide in our country." "The film follows the politics of slavery and the dynamics of oppressing people of color using techniques developed and long used in the South."
