This panel discussion explores the benefits and pitfalls of
competitions, organizations, and programs that center around a
specific cultural group. Explored in the discussion is the Society
for Photographic Education's Multicultural Caucus itself. Has the
presence of the caucus, like so many other groups created an environment
that while embracing the idea of cultural acceptance
also has the ability to alienate? Is the Caucus really needed at all?
Are any such programs dividing the photographic community, or
are they leveling the photographic playing field by introducing us
to the diversity that we can sometimes miss?
