MARCH 2014 SCREENING - AMERICAN PROMISE
TNB London presents American Promise, an epic and groundbreaking documentary set against the backdrop of a persistent educational achievement gap that dramatically affects African-American boys at all socioeconomic levels across the country. Premiering at Sundance Film Festival, it calls into question commonly held assumptions about educational access and what factors really influence academic performance.
Stephenson and Brewster deliver a rare, intimate, and emotional portrait of black middle-class family life, humanising the unique journey of African-American boys as they face the real-life hurdles society poses for young men of colour, inside and outside the classroom.
Followed by a panel debate, with the filmmakers, on the state of Black boys in the British education system and the place of Black history within the national curriculum.
