Microaggressions: The New Face of Discrimination DVD

Call number: HM 1116 .M536 2012

First coined by American psychiatrist Chester Pierce, microaggressions are often described as, “brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of other races.” This powerful video provides 20 examples of microaggressions in everyday life. These include microaggressions based on race, disability, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, and religion. Several scenarios show how the intersections of multiple identities influence the types of microaggressions experienced. (from http://www.academicvideostore.com)
