Facing You

Race, Class & Gender Among U.C. Berkeley Student Leaders

Co-sponsored by the University of California, Berkeley Ethnic Studies Department, Facing You, Facing Me brings together student leaders to address interracial conflict and understanding.  In the past this has included student body presidents from Marin to San Francisco’s Hunters Point and from East L.A. to Beverly Hills.

In an experiential/student centered course, participants from extremely diverse racial and class backgrounds develop intimate bonds, as individuals, while confronting personal prejudice and institutional racism.

The class was featured in California Nexsreel’s nationally acclaimed documentary “What’s Race Got to Do with It?”
