Event Details

In 1999, filmmakers Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster turned cameras on two families — including their own— as they grappled with the ups and downs of preparing their sons for academic success. At the time, they weren’t quite sure where the project would take them. But as they navigated the education system and wrestled with the same questions most new parents face, they knew that they had a story to tell.

Join us for a screening of this Sundance Award winning-film, then hear perspectives shared by Davidson College students Javier Robles and Cameron Joe, with alumni Derrick Thompson on experiences of diversity and inclusion in the education system. This engaging dialogue will be moderated by Nick Wharton, and will focus on empowering boys, their parents and educators while closing the black male achievement gap.

 

This event is scheduled in conjunction with the Question Bridge: Black Male exhibition, on view through June 1, 2014. Present your ticket stub at the Gantt Center the weekend of November 9th and 10th, and receive $10 off of membership.
