Screening and Discussion of the Film 'Higher Learning'

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Engleman Hall - Room B121

"Higher Learning," a film directed by John Singleton and released in 1994, deals with issues surrounding race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationality on a college campus. These concerns remain important to students today - especially in light of the shootings in California in May, new attention towards rape culture and athlete/sports culture, the evolving immigration debate, and the discourse around the crumbling of affirmative action programs. Join faculty of the Department of History as they host a screening and discussion addressing the contemporary relevance of this film and the ways in which courses in their department can help to place these matters impacting the lives of Southern students within their proper historical contexts.
