Diversity Film Series

The Center for Disability Information & Referral along with the Undergraduate Library Services is sponsoring a Diversity Film Series. The first installment, "X-MEN: The Movie," will be showing at Wells Library E174 Media Showing Room on September 27 at 6 p.m.

Born into a world filled with prejudice are children who possess extraordinary and dangerous powers - the result of unique genetic mutations. Now they must protect those who fear them as the nefarious Magneto, who believes humans and mutants can never co-exist, unveils his sinister plan for the future.

Following the film, we will discuss the idea of "otherness as evil" and what parallels, if any, exist for minority groups in society. Other movies to be shown include Tiptoes (October 23) and Radio (November 6).
