During the 2019-2020 academic year the Equity and Campus Diversity Office, Communication Department, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center have once again partnered for the fifth annual Beyond Boundaries: Dare to Be Diverse Screening and Discussion Series.
This six-part film series is organized around categories of diversity including, but not limited to, race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and abilities, with an emphasis on intersectionality.
The goal of the series is to provide a multicultural experience, while creating an opportunity for open dialogue among students, faculty, staff, and members of the Buffalo community.
Held in the beautiful Burchfield Penney Art Center, these topics, venue, and information are a calling card you won’t care to miss. All films start at 7:00 p.m.
