"This thesis will examine diversity and inclusion initiatives, or lack thereof at various institutions. This includes examining diversity and inclusion goals as defined by institutions, identifying various methods used and presenting potential ways to expand and yield not only diverse campuses, but a culture of understanding and respect for various social classes including race, gender, sexual preference etcetera."
Includes the film "Cautious" / produced and directed by the author, which tells the story of a black family on their way to visit relatives at Christmas when they are pulled over by a young white policeman who claims to be "one of the good guys." In the chaos that ensues when the panicked family begins to argue among themselves, the frightened cop pulls his gun -- and shoots.
