Think Before You Treat

- Location: Ade Dining Hall
(12:00 PM - 1:00 PM)
Drawn to Diversity, an Alfred University program which addresses issues of equality through art and creativity, is planning a silent demonstration called "Think Before You Treat" regarding derogatory Halloween costumes this Thursday, Oct. 30 at noon.

Ten students will stand silently in the Ade Hall lobby wearing insensitive Halloween costumes that are often criticized but rarely accompanied with education about the topic. Costumes and education will include blackface minstrelsy, domestic violence, religious portrayals, disabilities, and ethnicity. The tagline for the program reads "Don’t Dress Up As Ignorance This Halloween."

While the artist-activists will not engage in dialogue, they will distribute Halloween candy with accompanying educational literature detailing the history of their chosen costume. The artist-activists have requested no photography of their costumes be taken so that their images are not shared without the accompanying education. The program does intend to photograph the models in their own controlled photo-shoot to create a poster campaign which will be available on their website for educational use.

Speaker: Bob Stein
Topic: "Individualism and Race in Peter Matthiessen’s Shadow Country"
