KMOJ & TPT Host Debut Screening of Sundance Award-Winning Film

American Promise 

Tuesday, February 4, 2014  

Capri Theater, 2027 Broadway, Minneapolis, MN 55411 

Doors Open:  5:30pm 

Film Screening:  6:00 - 8:00pm 

Facilitated Discussion:  8:00 - 9:00pm

 

     American Promise spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michele 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 one of the most prestigious private schools in the country.
 

Chronicling the boys’ divergent paths from kindergarten through 

high school graduation at Manhattan’s Dalton School, this provocative, 

 intimate documentary presents complicated truths about America’s struggle to 

come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity.

  

This is a must-see documentary if you have children, are an educator or parent 

working to reduce the achievement gap and racial inequalities in public education,   

a community member concerned about the Twin Cities’ drop-out crisis or

a citizen/community activist working in

alignment with Mayor Betsy Hodges' "One Minneapolis."

 

A discussion will follow the film screening,

facilitated by staff from Harvest Prep, KMOJ and TPT.
