‘Tunnel of Oppression’

Morgan Boaman, a senior environmental studies major at Fort Lewis College, works on an exhibit about body-image issues for the Tunnel of Oppression, a live-action exhibit that invites participants to walk through and witness depictions of overt and covert oppression that occur in our society. “We want people to leave with this feeling they can be a conduit for change in society,” said Mike Billar, organizer of the free presentation, which will take place from 1:30 to 8 p.m. Monday in the FLC Ballroom. Billar said there will be nine scenes depicting issues relating to homophobia, racial profiling, immigration and others. Children younger than 18 will need a signed waiver from a parent or guardian because of strong subject matter, he said. Enlarge photo
