Lee Mun Wah to Lead Conversation at Diversity Workshop and Movie Viewing

On November 1 in the University Center Auditorium, Spalding will host the staff and faculty diversity workshop, “Unlearning Racism in Schools,”  from 2:30-5:30 p.m. followed by a community movie viewing and facilitated conversation (6:30-9:30 p.m.) led by  Lee Mun Wah, nationally-acclaimed lecturer and Master Diversity and Communications Trainer.

The movie, If These Halls Could Talk, shares the stories of eleven students from various colleges and personal backgrounds and explains what makes it unsafe for them in the classroom and what it is like to be a minority/immigrant on a predominantly white campus. The movie explores issues of trust and distrust in the classroom setting.

Lee Mun Wah is the director of If These Halls Could Talk and The Color of Fear and the film Last Chance for Eden. He is a Chinese American community therapist, documentary filmmaker, special education educator, performing poet, Asian folkteller and author. He is also Director of StirFry Seminars & Consulting, which works with corporations, government agencies, educational institutions, and social agencies to facilitate diversity issues through healthy and authentic cross cultural relationships.
