Jane Elliott’s Blue-Eyed film discussion is Feb. 20

The UW-Green Bay student organization, Women of Color, will be present Jane Elliott’s 1996 film “Blue-Eyed” with a discussion to follow. It will take place on Feb. 20 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the Christie Theatre. The film introduces 40 teachers, police, school administrators and social workers in Kansas City, Kans. — all from different races who were made subjects of a social experiment. In the experiment, participants are subjected to pseudo-scientific explanations for their inferiority, culturally biased IQ tests and blatant discrimination. Free and open to the public.

Upcoming: immigration and refugee awareness events

Several groups on campus are sponsoring upcoming events focusing on immigration and refugees. Events are sponsored by the Diversity Task Force, Women of Color, American Intercultural Center, Office of International Education, Humanistic Studies Academic Program and the Center for Middle East Studies and Partnerships. For questions, contact the American Intercultural Center (AIC) at 465-2720.

  • March 28 — a short presentation and panel of local experts focused on recent immigration orders from President Trump. Sessions will be held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Light snacks will be available.
  • April 4  — the Office of International Education presents “Salam Neighbor,” a documentary about Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Jordan at 7 p.m. A short discussion follows the film.

Talking about multicultural hair

Student members of the campus Women of Color group have lined up a great speaker to talk about multicultural hair. The program title is “You are not your Hair: Making Peace with the Hair Piece.” Do you treat people differently because of what their hair looks like? Do you know why you wear your hair the way you do? Come learn how history influences your hair dos, hair don’ts and hair attitude. Join Women of Color and Universal Designs Salon owner Kimyatta Ratliff at 6 p.m. next Tuesday (April 7) in Phoenix Rooms B and C. Free and open to the public.

Help UW-Green Bay’s Women of Color group with cookie support

The campus Women of Color organization is doing its first-ever cookie in a jar fundraiser. What are cookies in a jar? Simply put, you get the deconstructed cookies (ingredients) in a jar, follow the instructions given to mix and bake them, and ta-da! You have cookies. They also make great gifts to give during the Holidays. Women of Color has three cookie options, as well as two hot chocolate options:

M&M Holiday Cookies ($6) are a different, more festive take on your normal chocolate chip cookies. Their colors make these cookies pop and the M&Ms enhance the flavor of the cookie!

Drop Sugar Cookies ($6) are one of the humblest cookies, but they are surely not forgotten. They also come with fun colored sprinkles, and you can add different flavors for a different kick.

Snickerdoodles ($6) are a fun Holiday treat that nobody can resist. This cookie stands out with its special cake-like consistency that somehow make these better than just the run of the mill cookie.

Homemade Hot Chocolate ($3) is a delicious treat that comes in an adorable bag and a mini candy cane. It’s great to enjoy by yourself or share it with your friends and family!

Order forms are available in the AIC and are due Wednesday, December 3, and jars will be ready for pick-up in the American Intercultural Center Monday, December 8.
