November 27, 2018– Northern Kentucky University’s latest Six@Six Lecture Series features Sociology Professor Dr. Joan Ferrante discussing her documentary, Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories. Presented by Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement, Dr. Ferrante and her students will host this Six@Six at The Carnegie on November 29.

The Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories project uses the transformative power of the arts to tell a neglected story about race. The documentary reviews racial categories that were created and institutionalized without regard for biological, family, ancestral, romantic and other ties. The project’s creative team includes five NKU students who just completed the second of the four film documentary series.

Since 2010, NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement has held the Six@Six lecture series to connect community members with experts to discuss topics of national and local interest.
