The Way Home: Women Talk about Race in America

Portsmouth Public Library
175 Parrott
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

In this 2007 film, sixty-four women representing a cross-section of cultures (Indigenous, African-American, Arab/Middle Eastern, Asian, European-American, Jewish, Latina, and Multiracial) came together to share their experience of racism in America. With uncommon courage, the women speak their hearts and minds about resistance, love, assimilation, standards of beauty, power, school experiences, and more. Their candid conversations offer rare access into multi- dimensional worlds invisible to outsiders. Discussion facilitated by the Southern Maine chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice.
