American Promise
Directed by Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson


This powerful film follows two African-American boys from middle class families as they navigate a prestigious New York City prep school. It tracks each boy's journey from kindergarten through high school graduation, illustrating the hurdles young men of color encounter both in and out of the classroom. An intimate portrait of the distinct growing pains experienced by young men of color, "American Promise" sheds light on universal issues of identity and opportunity.


Please join us for a First Look screening of clips from the film, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and others.
