The N!gga(er) Word: Is There a Message in The Madness?
This session looks at the history of the "N-word" utilizing books, TV shows, film clips and a documentary film. The session challenges participants to examine their personal and professional histories with the N-word, examine when and /or how they were first introduced to the word and to explore the pictures and different feelings associated with the word. We will look at how current events, media, popular music and movies have used the word over the years and if the word has had any impact or influence on the millennial generation. Lastly, the session offers suggestions about the need and importance of understanding the various realities associated with the N-word and recommends how to challenge and encourage all people, but specifically young people, about the ramifications of casual or uninformed usage of this troublesome word.
