Film & Discussion Series: What Does My Headscarf Mean to You?
Thursday, March 23, 2017
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Join us as we view and discuss “What Does My Headscarf Mean to You?”, a video talk by Yassmin Abdel-Magied.
Unconscious bias is a prevalent factor driving culture, causing us all
to make assumptions based on our own upbringings and influences. Such
implicit prejudice affects everything, and it’s time for us to be more
thoughtful, smarter, better. In this funny, honest talk, Yassmin
Abdel-Magied uses a surprising way to challenge us all to look beyond
our initial perceptions.
is a two-part meeting - viewing and discussing this powerful video,
followed by meeting in smaller groups to advance our action projects:
Schools Initiative; Listening Projects; Making Amherst a Sanctuary City;
and Legislative Initiative.
Free & open to the public.
Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.
