Hey Guys!

I just wanted to suggest a really awesome documentary called “American Promise”. Its a really great film that documents the lives of two Black boys through their lives (for 13 years!) and their school experience at a private schools in Manhattan. I saw it my sophomore year in high school when it came out and it’s really pertinent to all of the stuff we are looking at in class right now around youth in the media.

Here’s the link to the website if you wanted to check it out. Again, it’s an amazing film, it won the “Winner Jury Award” at Sundance and was in the NY Film Festival and was nominated for 3 Emmy’s and all that good stuff.
