Dr. Moore looks at the history of the N-word utilizing books, television shows, film clips, music and more. Dr. Moore challenges participants to examine their personal and professional histories with the “N” word, consider when and/or how they were first introduced to the word and to explore the pictures and different feelings associated with the word. Dr. Moore will focus on how current events, media, popular music and movies have used the word over the years and if the word has had and still has any impact or influence. Lastly, Dr. Moore will offer suggestions about the need and importance of understanding the various realities associated with the N-word and recommend how to challenge and encourage all people, but specifically young people, about the ramifications of casual or uninformed usage of this powerful and troublesome word.
