I’m Not Racist…Am I? is a feature documentary from Point Made Films and directed by DPS George Washington High School alumni Catherine Wigginton-Greene. The film follows a diverse group of teens through a year-long exploration to get at the heart of racism. Through some tense and painful moments, we see how these difficult conversations affect their relationships with friends and parents, and ultimately challenge them to look deep within themselves. By the end of their time together, we’ll see these remarkable young people develop deeper bonds, a stronger resolve and a bigger, more significant definition of racism than any of us ever imagined.
Many of us are on our own personal journeys right now of learning and reflection. This film aims to inspire everyone to recognize and interrupt racism in their own lives. Join us to learn how you can become an agent of change to make a difference in our community.
