Tunnel of Oppression is an interactive theater experience.  Participants walk through different theaters designed to display oppression of marginalized groups.  It started as a campus grassroots diversity program at Western Illinois University and can now be found at many colleges and universities around the nation.  Inspiration from the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles was used as a template for the first Tunnel of Oppression.  The Tunnel of Oppression at Boise State is directed, written and performed by Boise State students.
