On Monday, March 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge, the Canisius College Video Institute will screen the student-produced documentary “A Path Toward Equality: The Dalit People of India.” The film was created by Michael Compton ’17, while on a service trip with campus ministry during summer 2016. The documentary focuses on the daily lives and struggles of the people who are Dalit—a general classification for the “untouchables,” those who are oppressed within India’s traditional caste system.
Admission is free and will include the documentary screening followed by a panel discussion and refreshments. For more information, please contact Jamie O’Neil, associate professor of communication studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-888-2115.
