One Drop of Love: Race and Identity in America

Race in America is a complex issue that often drives headline news and affects the way we interact with one another. In a multimedia one-woman session, Fanshen takes attendees on an experience through our country’s history and exposes the complications that come with racial constructions. It explores the influence this construction has had on family relationships, identity development, racial, economic and gender oppression, and more.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discover & analyze the connections between historical context and personal narrative and how they intersect and influence personal narratives.
  2. Critically examine the historical construction of race through the changing racial categories of the U.S. Census.
  3. Experience how social identity (race, gender, class, etc.) constructions affect our own well-being and our most intimate relationships.
