In this webinar, filmmaker and professor of digital storytelling, Dr. Imani Cheers will present her expertise on digital storytelling in the classroom, which she uses as a way to document and share critical environmental and social issues. She will share her research and filming experiences in South Africa, Namibia, and Palestine, documenting systems of institutionalized racial segregation, terror, and political and economic disenfranchisement.
