Film & Discussion: "Holding Fast the Dream"
Screening and discussion of the documentary film Holding Fast the Dream about the tragedy of racism in a multicultural paradise...and the significant achievements of Hawaii’s African Americans in science, social justice, and the arts. This event is part of Dreams Deferred ... Dreams Held Fast, a film and discussion series sponsored by the Center for Multicultural Education and the Rod Library in association with the UNI 2012-13 Reaching for Higher Ground project theme The Search for an American Dream. Film will be used as the basis for personal reflection and dialogue in addressing the nature and meaning of “American Dream” relative to issues of marginalization and privilege. Participants will be challenged to examine their own beliefs and assumptions about being American today.
