“Please join Education Forward DC, the Greater Washington Community Foundation, and the DC Public Education Fund for a citywide screening Thursday, September 27th of America to Me, a ten-part docu-series about race and equity in America’s public schools. The content is compelling. Directed by Academy-Award nominee Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Life Itself, The Interrupters), the series follows a year in the life of students, teachers, and administrators at Oak Park and River Forest High School, a racially integrated high school near Chicago. You can learn more about the series from the New York Times and IndieWire reviews, and the series trailer.
We hope to see you September 27th, 6-8:30 pm at the Howard Cramton Auditorium for the screening and discussion with former U.S. Secretary of Education and CEO of Ed Trust, John King; Interim Chancellor of District of Columbia Public Schools, Amanda Alexander; National Black Justice Coalition ED, David Johns; former Washington, DC Deputy Mayor for Education, Abigail Smith; and series-featured student, Jada Buford.
