The Interns of the Exceptional Men of the Talented Tenth Inc. will host Breaking Barriers to promote diversity and unity among the university community. The program will be held on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the LSC Theater and is open to all members of the SHSU community.

According to Mariel Kanene, Fundraising Chair and one of the creators of Breaking Barriers, the goal of the program is to address the social segregation on campus and see if there is a solution for it.

“You can’t fix anything unless you address it, so we are addressing the situation and trying to educate each other,” Kanene said.

The program will be broken down into four segments. The first segment will introduce the program and talk about breaking barriers. The second segment will focus on social segregation and why it still exists.

The third will be a segment for the faculty representatives to speak and answer questions.

The last segment will be searching for a “real” solution to the addressed problems and situations. The program will open up to audience discussion after each segment.

“This will be a very interactive educational program,” Kanene said.

Videos will be incorporated throughout the program to enhance visual education. According to Kanene, there will be a video pertaining to each segment that they focus on.

The Interns of the Exceptional Men of the Talented Tenth Inc. are required to produce an educational program. Kanene, a sophomore, along with a few other Intern members envisioned the program because they felt like this issue is something that has not been addressed.

“We are trying to break the barrier,” Kanene said.
