ID : 1158   
« back to classes page
What is racial equity? Can it be achieved in an integrated school environment? Find out how Oak Park/River Forest High School has struggled with this issue in the ten-part documentary series America to Me. Filmed over a period of one school year, this docu-series explores issues of race, equity and education through the eyes of students, faculty and parents as they grapple with these challenges. America To Me is a reality check on the state of race relations in our country as narrated by those on the front lines. The series takes a hard look at how good intentions and diverse communities do not always lead to better outcomes for people of color. In this study group you will watch, learn, and be challenged to imagine a more equitable Chicago for all our children. Supplementary readings and use of Canvas will be part of this study group. No class on 11/28/19.
