"American Promise" Parent Education Movie Screening

Please join us as we screen the documentary film, "American Promise" on Tuesday, October 24, at 6:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a discussion.

"American Promise spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, middle-class African-American parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., turn their cameras on their son, Idris, and his best friend, Seun, who make their way through Dalton, one of the most prestigious private schools in the country. Chronicling the boys' divergent paths from kindergarten through high school graduation, this provocative, intimate documentary presents complicated truths about America's struggle to come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity. Winner, U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award, 2013 Sundance Film Festival."

The award was presented during an assembly on a new composting option for the school.
