Star Trek and Calling Up Justice

As part of Calling Up Justice’s practice we reflect on widely distributed cultural productions to facilitate media literacy and explore larger ideas of social justice. Star Trek’s combination of a utopian future, allegorical storytelling, diverse representation, social commentary, and ethical exploration make it an excellent vehicle for discussing social justice. It invites viewers to envision a better future while critically examining the present and contemplating the changes necessary to achieve social equality and justice.
