February 12, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
TUESDAY FEBRUARY 12 – 5:30pm OLIN 102
Charlene Teters was a graduate art student at the University of Illinois, when she started a campaign to retire the school’s racist team mascot and was met with death threats. Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Jay Rosenstein – professor of Media and Cinema Studies at the University of Illinois – made IN WHOSE HONOR to chronicle the controversy. It was aired in 1997 on PBS. Mr. Rosenstein is still receiving threats over the film.
IN WHOSE HONOR? (48 minutes) will be shown, followed by a conversation with Ms. Teters and Mr. Rosenstein moderated by BCSH director Kenneth Stern
