Community Curator: SURJ ROC
April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for an afternoon of films from the VSW Film/Video Collection chosen by Showing Up for Racial Justice, Rochester. SURJ ROC believes in collective liberation through the eradication of of white supremacy, and in supporting the missions of People of Color-led racial justice groups in the Rochester area in their fight against oppression and inequality. SURJ ROC has chosen a selection of films from the VSW Collection that address, confront or exemplify the racist history of educational media in America. SURJ ROC member Kathy Castania and members of the Education Committee will moderate a post-screening discussion on building a multi-racial majority to challenge racism in all forms.
The Community Curator program invites representatives from community groups in the Rochester region to curate film screenings using VSW’s collection of over 9,000 film and video titles. Participants in the program will work the Curator of Moving Image Collections to research and select a full program of films that speak to the interests of the group, while opening a broader dialog with the Rochester community.
