Press release from Brookdale Community College
Beginning on the evening of Tuesday, February 24, Brookdale Community College will inaugurate a new series of free movie screenings and expert lectures on such topics as race, civil rights and privacy in the digital age.
The series kicks off at 7 pm with a screening of Catherine Wigginton Greene’s acclaimed documentary I’m Not Racist…Am I?. The film documents the interactions of a diverse group of teenagers over the course of a year, as they confront issues such as culture, identity and institutional racism. The director will host an interactive discussion with the audience following the screening.
On Tuesday, March 3 at 11:45 am, civil rights activist Annie Clark will host a lecture called “Title IX and Campus Activism; Know Your Rights.” Clark, co-founder of the national advocacy group End Rape on Campus, will discuss the prevalence of sexual assaults at American colleges and how citizens can fight to stop them.
On Tuesday, March 24 at 11:45 a.m., documentary filmmaker Cullen Hoback will discuss his new film Terms And Conditions May Apply. The feature examines how individuals often “sign away” their privacy rights without knowing it, allowing companies and government organizations to access and share their personal information.
All events are open to the public and held in the Student Life Center building at Brookdale, 765 Newman Springs Road in Lincroft. Parking is available in lots six and seven. Take it here for more information.
