Homeroom presents “School Night: How to Politically Correct,” an info show about the awesome love, power, and freedom of political correctness. Tim Barnes, H. Melt, Kristiana Rae Colón, and Tim Jones-Yelvington join School Night hosts Fred Sasaki and Seth Vanek to tease out doctrine, language politics, and stigma amid our burgeoning social landscape and evolving ideals. Topics include how to embody our best selves, respect our fellows, and confront inequities, violence, and demagogues in safe, constructive, and badass ways. Come exercise your civic duty by engaging as citizens of humanity.
Your School Night homework comes by way of a brief primer on how to politically correct, great for role-plays or silent meditation. Try this game at your next dinner party or work retreat!
