Duygu Monson
How are civil rights portrayed in films around the world?  Does “civil rights” mean the same thing around the world?  How have movies been a platform for raising awareness of and advocating civil rights?  How does censorship and implicit bias affect the depiction of civil rights?  Join us to discuss these and other questions.
