In cooperation with the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, and as a follow up to the recent MOSH exhibit, Anne Frank: Voices of Hope, the Norman Studios hosts a two-day event, Race Film: A Voice of Hope Against Discrimination. Via graphic design displays, films and two keynote speakers, we’ll illustrate how casual discrimination and stereotyping can lead to racial and religious persecution, if not opposed vigorously.
Held at the Norman Studios property in historic Old Arlington, where late silent filmmaker helped to break racial barriers in the film industry a century ago, Race Film: A Voice of Hope Against Discrimination runs Feb. 25-26, noon-4pm. The property is located at 6337 Arlington Road, with entry at the gate on Westdale Drive.
