Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive, campus-wide diversity program where actors put on scenarios for participants to experience. It will challenge participants’ thoughts, perceptions, and inner feelings on issues dealing with oppression and hate. Once the participants arrive, they will be guided through five scenarios. Each scenario will consist of a real-life situation scripted by and performed by Missouri State students.
This year’s topics are: Anxiety and Mental Health, Accent Discrimination, Black Lives Matter, Domestic Violence, and Gender and Religion.
Once participants have completed the Tunnel, an empowerment room consisting of campus and community resources will be available to encourage participants to learn more about the topics and how to make a difference in the topics highlighted in Tunnel.
Tunnel of Oppression will be held in the Wells House ground floor on Tuesday, February 28 and Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Tours given nightly from 6-8:30pm.
