Latinos Beyond Reel: Challenging a Media Stereotype
Tuesday, March 5, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
New York, NY
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
One in six adults and one in four children in the United States are Latinos, but their reality is rarely depicted in the mainstream media. The film shows how a narrow range of misrepresentation, combined with hate speech against undocumented immigrants and Latinos, had devastating consequences for this nation as a whole. Post-screening discussion with the filmmakers and reception will follow. Please RSVP by 3/2 via bit.ly/cmepevents.
Hosted by Clinical Associate Professor of Media Studies, Chyng Sun, and co-sponsored by the NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund Chapter at NYU, Bella Quisqueya at NYU and Latinos Unidos Con Honor y Amistad at NYU.
