Movie Screening: Tickling Giants
Tarrant County College Northeast Campus and TCC’s Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion will host a special screening of Tickling Giants, a film based on the true story of Bassem Youseff (aka “The Egyptian Jon Stewart”) and how his use of humor to address oppression by the Egyptian government resulted in personal and professional hardship during the Arab Spring. The film serves as a cautionary tale about what can happen when leaders go unchecked.
Following each of the three screenings, representatives from TCC’s Diversity and Inclusion Council and its Government department will lead discussions about how to differentiate between what is oppressive versus what is merely offensive, and how individuals can raise their voices individually or collectively to effect positive change.
- 1:00pm & 4:00pm in NBSS 1103 Community Room
- 7:00pm in NSTU 1615A Center Corner
