Event Details

Please join Public Broadcasting Atlanta for a FREE screening of The Graduates/Los Graduados.

Gustavo Madrigal, from Griffin Georgia, is one of the students featured into the documentary.

The Graduates/Los Graduados explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latino and Latina students from across the United States. More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, the bilingual film offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators, and community leaders. It is the story of the graduates who will make up America’s future. 

The public screening on October 24th will feature the "Boys" hour of the two-part documentary - which highlights students from Griffin, GA. The second hour, "Girls," will be screened online from www.AmericanGraduateATL.org on November 7th. Following the screenings, we'll keep the discussion going online by releasing 5 short documentaries that feature individual students, on the American Graduate website.

 

Thursday, October 24, 2013 at the Latin American Association (LAA)

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the film showing from 7-8 p.m.

For more information email Leah-Lane Lowe.

Public Broadcasting Atlanta

Great cities are known by their museums, theaters, symphonies and parks. But the greatest impact on a city’s cultural life radiates invisibly through the air.

For Atlanta, that cultural force is Public Broadcasting Atlanta. WABE 90.1 FM and PBA 30, brings NPR News, music, the arts and PBS programming to hundreds of thousands of listeners and viewers each year. Today, people turn to public broadcasting for their news, music, arts and entertainment. Yet, few people realize that public broadcasting began as “educational television” — strictly a learning resource. As a broadcast service of Atlanta Public Schools in partnership with the Atlanta Educational Telecommunications Collaborative (AETC), PBA has never lost sight of its original mission. Education remains at the core of our operation at every level, from preschoolers to our elders.
