Cracking the Codes Launch: The System of Racial Inequity

Posted by Lisa Abbott on November 1, 2012


Our multi-city film/dialogue tour is in full swing and over 1200 people have already engaged on the topic of systemic inequity with our new film. Now Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity is getting ready to return home to Oakland, November 8th at 6:30pm at the Grand Lake Theater.
The film is supported by a critical mass of stories and is anchored by this framing of the self-perpetuating system of racial inequity, narrated by Oakland Poetry Slam finalist Y. Jelal Huyler.
"Most of us, if we admit it, feel pretty stuck and helpless when it comes to addressing racism.  It's the social 'third' rail that we either avoid, collide with or both--without much guidance or support. Cracking the Codes is an important breakthrough in helping to turn this around.  Part story telling, part toolbox, this project deftly portrays the complex interplay between the personal, institutional and systemic.  It is an invaluable resource for anyone who has ever wondered how to get this conversation started--and keep it going."
-Makani Themba-Nixon, Executive Director of the Praxis Project

Now with Spanish subtitles, English subtitles for the hard of hearing and downloadable conversation guide, Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity ships today to communities across the country.  Featuring 23 leaders in the equity movement including: Amer Ahmed, Joy DeGruy, Connie Heller, Ise Lyfe, Peggy McIntosh, Hugh Vasquez, and Tim Wise this film promises to engage audiences and build community.
