If These Halls Could Talk-Film/Diversity Dialogue with Director, Lee Mun Wah
Director Lee Mun Wah brought together 11 college students to discuss what it is like on campuses across the country today. The students shared the frustration and anguish of trying to be understood and acknowledged on campuses that are predominantly white. Their stories are starkly emotional and raw, filled with incredible tenderness, courage and pain. The issues that they challenge us to look at are equally provocative, begging to be heard and confronted. If you've wondered why students/faculty of color are leaving our campuses, if you struggle to understand students from other cultures, if you don’t know what to say or do when a conflict occurs around diversity issues, this film will help model for you what it will take to have conversations on diversity that are both authentic and life-changing. This film will provide a glimpse into what is still missing and what is needed if we are ever going to come together in our classrooms, on our campuses and in our communities.
