World Trust Filmmaker Continues Holy Cross’ 40 Years of Coeducation Celebration

September 27th, 2013 by Sara Bovat ’14

Shakti Butler, Ph. D. will be giving a lecture to discuss her latest film “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity” on Thursday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m. in Rehm Library. The Office of Multicultural Education will be sponsoring the talk as a continued recognition of forty years of coeducation. The event is free and open to the public.

As an active educator of racial equity for over two decades, Butler is a filmmaker and Founder & Creative Director of World Trust, which is a nonprofit organization that promotes social justice through film and dialogue. The organization creates programs and seminars based on their thought-provoking films. Butler produced and directed groundbreaking documentaries, such as “The Way Home,” “Mirrors of Privilege: Making Whiteness Visible,” and “Light in the Shadows.”

Her latest film, “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity,” uses narrative, theater, and music to expose the larger frame of structural racial inequity. Her lecture will use this film to focus on multicultural disparities which threaten issues of justice and equality.
