The only way to understand and accept someone is through interaction and conversation. We all have been taught assumptions about other groups of people and create more every day. These assumptions cause us to develop negative perceptions about other races. The only way to put a stop to discrimination
is to overcome these negative perceptions. Mesh is an investigating into how SUNY New Paltz students are socializing across race and ethnicity. The project
seeks to understand why social life is so segregated on campus, why the majorities and minorities socialize primarily amongst themselves, and how students deal with and understand this phenomenon. By obtaining data and personal testimonies I can understand
the interplay of di erent mindsets at work, and
use interviews, videos, posters and zines to raise awareness and cultivate understanding of the issue.
