Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Film Screening of "Black Indians: An American Story" (DICE)


Time: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Location: Student Life Multicultural Center Alonso Family Room

As a part of Native American History Month, join Intercultural Specialists Katherine Betts and Melissa Beard Jacob for a screening of the film, "Black Indians: An American Story."

“Black Indians: An American Story,” explores the issue of racial identity among Native and African Americans. This in-depth documentary examines the native ancestry and the coalescence of these Indian tribes in American history. Discounted, and often ignored by mainstream America, these minority peoples have often shared a common native history. However, with their heritage ignored and their contributions denied they are all but invisible at the dawn of the new millennium.
