Humanities New York Logo

WSM has received a grant from Humanities New York to develop an online series: "Race Films/Race Matters: Starting Conversations About Race in America." The digital program presents five important race films and corresponding presentations about the films by scholars from Cornell University, Ithaca College, University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill, the George Eastman Museum, and Ithaca High School, with the objective of encouraging and starting necessary conversations about race, racial tension and race discrimination in America today. Race Films/Race Matters debuts December 1, 2020 on each of the FLFT partners' websites, and will be followed by a number of Zoom discussions in the new year. Stay tuned for details! The project is produced by Finger Lakes Film Trail, an inter-county initiative launched in 2018 by Wharton Studio Museum, George Eastman Museum in Rochester, and Cayuga Museum of History and Art & Case Research Lab in Auburn.  Finger Lakes Film Trail is grateful to Humanities New York for making this project possible.
