Tunnel of Oppression
1:00pm - 7:00pm, Hendrix Student Center, Ballrooms A & B
Tunnel of Oppression is a simulation, acted out by members of our campus community that depict real-life scenarios of power, privilege and oppression experienced by marginalized populations in our society. Past years scenes highlighted issues such a racism, homophobia, and college rape culture.
This year, we invite students/student organizations to submit a script or story that depicts themes from, but not limited to, the list below:
The scripts/stories selected will win a $75 monetary award. An additional $150 will be given to the room voted Most Impactful. Please submit your script/story in a Word document and e-mail them to Navi Kaur firstname.lastname@example.org or Jason Combs email@example.com. If you would prefer a more anonymous form of submission you can bring hard copies to the Gantt Multicultural Center (Brackett 300) and leave them at the front desk. All script ideas are due by Monday, November 20th. If you have any questions or would like an example of a script from a previous Tunnel experience, please let us know.
Check back for continous updates as the Annual MLK Celebration draws closer. For more information, contact Kendra Stewart-Tillman.
