The Center on Race and Social Problems invites you to join us for a film screening and community dialogue on January 20, 2023 as part of MLK Social Justice Week. The film, ‘How Does It Feel To Be A Problem’, is an award-winning documentary that traces the phenomenon of othering in America and situates the Black Lives Matter movement in historical, philosophical and political context. The title of the documentary is based on W.E.B. DuBois' famous question that he raised in his seminal book, "The Souls of Black Folk." The film's writer, J.W. Wiley, and director, Tom Keith, will be present to engage the audience in a post-screening dialogue regarding the creation process, content, and impact of the documentary.
