If These Halls Could Talk explores the myriad of ways educators can learn how to develop authentic classroom environments where diversity issues can be discussed openly and safely. Through stories and personal exchanges, eleven students from various colleges and personal backgrounds share what makes it unsafe for them in the classroom and what it is like to be a minority/immigrant on a predominantly white campus. They explore issues of trust and distrust amongst one another, with other students and college staff/faculty. Lee Mun Wah models, for the first time, how to facilitate interpersonal conflicts and diversity issues mindfully and transformatively in the classroom.
Lee Mun Wah is an internationally renowned Chinese American documentary filmmaker, author, poet, Asian folkteller, educator, community therapist and master diversity trainer. If These Halls Could Talk is his latest film.
