"White Wash" Movie Night
Come join us for our Black History Month Movie Night! We will be showing "White Wash". The struggle and triumph of black surfers serves as a palette to show the complexity of race relations in America. Located in the 3C grassy area between Eatery and Residential Halls. Make sure to bring your own chairs and/or blankets to sit and enjoy the movie.
Discussion led Monica Ketchum an AWC history professor, artist, and community activist. She spent several years catching waves and hanging with diverse groups of surfers and skate punks from California to Australia and saw localism, not racism, as being the key conflict in surf culture. White Wash changed her understanding of the challenges faced by black surfers, both institutionally and culturally. Join her for a discussion before the special screening of the film.
