American Textures, a 78 minute documentary by Crossing Borders Films, follows six young Americans of Black, White and Latino origin on a road trip through diverse communities in the southern United States to confront race through dialogue. The journey pushes them to risk sharing their own stories, struggles and hopes. The honest confrontations, powerful dialogues, and growing empathy between them create vibrant doorways through which the heroes forge deeper understanding of themselves, each other and the world they live in.

Crossing Borders Films is creating powerful intercultural discussions on college campuses across the U.S.

This event is open to all members of the campus community. Faculty interested in facilitating multicultural and diversity discussions in their classrooms are encouraged to meet Mr. Wachter and learn more about his work.
