Join us Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at 6 pm in The Union (House of Maize and Blue) for a screening and discussion of Dark Girls. “Dark Girls is a fascinating and controversial documentary film that goes underneath the surface to explore the prejudices that dark-skinned women face throughout the world. It explores the roots of classism, racism and the lack of self-esteem within a segment of cultures that span from America to the most remote corners of the globe. Women share their personal stories, touching on deeply ingrained beliefs and attitudes of society, while allowing generations to heal as they learn to love themselves for who they are.” (http://officialdarkgirlsmovie.com/) Sponsored by: Women's Resource Center, ColorBlind Magazine, Office for Student Engagement Diversity Programs, InCLUDE, Black Student Union, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Xi Phi Chapterand Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, Inkster Alumnae Chapter.

"I am Malala" Discussion, Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 12-1 pm in 1225 UC. Join the WRC and Women's & Gender Studies for a discussion of the book I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban. I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. I AM MALALA will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.
