Film Plot Summary
Hidden Colors is a documentary about the real and untold history of people of color around the globe. This film discusses some of the reasons the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. Traveling around the country, the film features scholars, historians, and social commentators who uncovered amazing facts about things such as:
* The original image of Christ
* The true story about the Moors
* The original people of Asia
* The great West African empires
* The presence of Africans in America before Columbus
* The real reason slavery was ended and much more.
This event is FREE and open to students, staff, and faculty (the Brighton Campus viewing is open to the Rochester community). We look forward to seeing you there! Please see the series description below and attached flyer for more details.
Coming of Age is an adventure, especially for college students who are faced with balancing growing responsibilities and well-being while embarking on “…a journey of self-discovery.” This series aims to facilitate the process of Coming of Age and equip students with the tools needed to beat the dreaded "Freshmen 15". For remaining attendees, the series will also explore the value of knowing one's own cultural history, the importance of personal health and wellness, the interconnectedness of humanity and sociological development.
