Abstract

Microaggressions include verbal and behavioral actions of indignity and are often derogatory and insulting to the victim whether intentional or unintentional. Microaggressions can have serious impacts on those being ridiculed. We conducted interviews with WOU students documenting personal experiences of microaggressions via audio and visual technology. We used a set of interview questions to create a short documentary film to share personal testimonies. Through these interviews we would like to inform our student body of the discrimination that occurs on campus every day. Raising awareness is the key to creating a campus, culture, and society of tolerance and--someday—equality.
