Every generation has had trailblazers who pave the way for the next generation to have more access than previously acquired. While we have come a long way as a society, current events have proven we still have quite a ways to go. Using Disney’s Zootopia, this presentation will discuss the parallels between the film and current events in regards to prejudice and privilege in our society and the astounding similarities as portrayed throughout the film. We will also explore the overarching theme of perseverance displayed by “Officer Hops” and how that parallels with today’s bold and pioneering leaders.
