Boxes & Walls

Boxes and Walls personalizes oppression and the importance of activism by "bringing it home" for the individual. Participants are led by a tour guide through a series of "rooms". Each room is designed to focus on a historically oppressed group, culture, or social justice concern named by students. Along the way, participants are placed into situations, doing activities, while being confronted with a wealth of information. The Boxes & Walls experience gives us all a glimpse of what being part of each group might be like, both historically and in the present day.

Boxes and Walls, or versions of it, have been part of diversity education initiatives througout the midwest.
