Environments of Race and Place
Environments of Race and Place zeroes in on issues surrounding immigration, migration, and racial identities unique to specific environments. These works embrace and amplify the micro rather than the macro in scope. They move from the national to the hyperlocal, advocating that understanding conflicts and contradictions can lead to change. Discussions of police brutality in Third World Newsreel’s Black Panther a.k.a. Off the Pig or animations about toxic pollution made by the Indigenous youth media collective, Outta Your Backpack, expand conceptualizations of the range of participatory community media and the varieties of forms environmental media inhabits.
