Intended to “help all of us come together across racial and ethnic lines so that we can work together to build a community that is strong, healthy and respectful,” the annual Anti-Racism Film Festival at Greenfield’s All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Church unfolds Saturday with screenings of three films, punctuated by a potluck supper:
2:45 p.m., “Precious Knowledge,” a documentary centered on legislative attempts to ban the Mexican American Studies Program in the Tucson School District of Arizona.
4:30 p.m., “Schooling the World” examines underlying Western values through the eyes of indigenous people.
6 p.m., supper (“a nourishing meal of local foods”).
7 p.m., “Dear White People,” a chronicle of the underlying racially motivated problems of a mythical Ivy League college as illustrated by the lives of four black students.
A discussion follows each screening. The festival is free, with donations appreciated. Free childcare provided. uugreenfield.org or 773-5018
