Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, featuring Dr. Shakti Butler

Dr. Butler will present her film “Cracking the Codes,” which asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequality. Designed for dialogue, the film works to disentangle internal beliefs, attitudes, and pre-judgments within, and it builds skills to address the structural drivers of social and economic inequities. Following the show, Dr. Butler will conduct a discussion and Q&A. The presentation is on February 17 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in Coffman Union Theater. Stay tuned for registration information.
