LINCROFT, NJ (Feb. 2, 2015) – Brookdale Community College will host a series of free movie screenings and expert lectures this semester on topics such as race, civil rights and privacy in the digital age.
The Spring Lecture Series will kick off on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. with a screening of the acclaimed documentary “I’m Not Racist … Am I?”.

On Tuesday, March 3 at 11:45 a.m., civil rights activist Annie Clark will host a lecture called “Title IX and Campus Activism; Know Your Rights.” Clark, co-founder of the national advocacy group End Rape on Campus, will discuss the prevalence of sexual assaults at American colleges and how citizens can fight to stop them.
On Tuesday, March 24 at 11:45 a.m., documentary filmmaker Cullen Hoback will discuss his new film “Terms and Conditions May Apply.” The film examines how individuals often “sign away” their privacy rights without knowing it, allowing companies and government organizations to access and share their personal information.
