Submitted on January 11, 2010 at 10:36 AM

Eight men sit down to discuss racism while film cameras roll. They are white, black, Asian and Latino. What follows quickly leads to expressions of fear and an often heated examination of perceptions. Lee Mun Wah produced the movie "The Color of Fear". He will screen the film and hold a discussion on Wednesday, January 27 at Volunteer State Community College.

A nationally acclaimed lecturer and Master Diversity & Communications Trainer, Mun Wah is a Chinese American community therapist, documentary filmmaker, Special Education educator, performing poet, Asian folkteller and author. He has appeared on "Oprah" and CNN, and lectured at colleges and universities across the country.

The film and discussion will be held at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium in Caudill Hall on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. It is free and open to the public. For more information call 615-230-3443.
