In celebration of Black History and Women's History Month, Miles Maker, Marketing Producer of the film 'Pariah' (2011) will be speaking at the next Racialization in the Media Lecture Series.

The event starts off with a screening of Pariah at 7pm prior to a talk by Maker and Q&A with the audience.

Maker aims to bridge the gap between art and commerce. He is Executive Producer of Convercinema and hopes to make films accessible across different regions, cultures and identities. http://www.milesmaker.com/

Doors will open and food will be served at 6:30pm, first come first serve.

As consumers of pop culture, it is important to be aware of how the media shapes gender, race, sexuality and multiple forms of intersectional identities. How people are portrayed can have a big impact on how they are perceived within society. The lecture series was created as a way to educate people, filmmakers and non-filmmakers alike, about the power of popular media and how it can shape how people view race, gender, and sexual identity.
