April 23: Lecture addresses racist entertainment

“When ‘Fun’ Isn’t Funny: Racist Entertainment, from Ghetto Parties to American Indian Mascots,”
a lecture by D. Anthony Tyeeme Clark from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, begins at 7 p.m. in the Thompson Conference Center auditorium, Room 1.110. During his lecture, Clark shows how popular culture shapes the ongoing colonization of Indian peoples starting in childhood and how adults refashion, disseminate and reinforce it through experience and hearsay in day-to-day conversation and in mass media communications.
