Historically, and at present, religion is sometimes used to rationalize denial of rights, and worse, against minority groups, outsiders, and strangers. In a panel discussion, representatives from various faiths will each share their own traditions’ attitudes toward foreigners, strangers, and immigrants, referring to their histories and sacred texts to illustrate their past responses and aspirations for the future.

Sponsored by the Council on Spiritual and Religious Life.

Co-sponsored by: Mindfulness Living Learning Community

A screening of one of the most acclaimed movies of 2017.

When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend's (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key and Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

Movie co-sponsored by Multicultural Affairs and Student Success and STATIC
