In the past 14 months, two new Star Wars films, "Episode VII — The Force Awakens" and "Rogue One," released to widespread critical and popular acclaim; however, while largely celebrated, both films have drawn the ire of those unhappy that these films feature women and people of color as principal leads.
Join us for a discussion that will use this controversy as a catalyst to examine the role race plays in the Star Wars films and how the series asks viewers to rethink their own prejudices at the same time as it encodes markers of systemic racism in American culture.
*The films will not be screened in their entirety; rather, a "supercut" of relevant film clips will be shown.
