Students at Amherst College may have a different experience at orientation than other freshman around the country. A two hour block in their orientation schedule includes a mandatory viewing of the short film "I'm Not Racist...Am I?" which discusses modern day racism and white privilege.
The 2014 documentary follows 12 teens of different racial backgrounds over the course of a year as they attend five workshops regarding racism -- playing board games, creating songs, and discussing the "n-word," according to Campus Reform.
The film's website promises viewers that the film will force them to challenge their own views. "These courageous teens won’t be the only ones asking, 'I’m Not Racist… Am I?'"
The trailer for the film can be viewed here.
