American Textures

"American Textures, a 78 minute documentary by Crossing Borders Films, follows six young Americans of Black, White and Latino origin on a road trip through the southern United States to confront race through dialogue. Their journey moves them to push through the wall of silence/fear/discomfort that surrounds race in Today’s America and face the presence of segregation, bias, and blindness, not only in US society, but also inside themselves. Their courage, vulnerability and honest interactions become emotional examples of ways to follow in their footsteps."

Region VI: 10 Lenses Presentation

My colleague Wilfrido "Willie" Cruz and I began using Mark Williams' Ten Lenses: Your Guide to Living and Working in a Multicultural World for staff development in 2006.  We have prepared many different versions of the training over the years, which has sometimes included monologues, skits, video clips...The various versions have taken anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to present.  This particular version was created to give an overview of Williams' theory at the NAFSA Region VI conference, held during the first week of November 2019 in Columbus, OH.

Barnga

"BARNGA is a simulation game that encourages participants to critically consider normative assumptions and cross-cultural communication. It was created by Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan in 1980, while working for USAID in Gbarnga, Liberia. He and his colleagues were trying to play Euchre but all came away from the instructions with different interpretations. He had an ‘A-ha’ moment that conflict arises not (only) from major or obvious cultural differences but often from subtle, minor cues. He created the game to tease out these subtleties. In this activity, students play a card game silently, each operating with a different set of rules, unbeknownst to them."
