American Promise  is a film that spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, middle-class African-American parents in Brooklyn, New York, 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. American Promise is the Winner of the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award and 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

The film airs on February 3 at 9pm MST on Rocky Mountain PBS.
