Ditch Work and Go to School
Leave work early Friday March 5 and head to the Atlas Theater for an early evening movie at 5pm. According to press notes The Prep School Negro, the director takes a journey back in time to revisit the events of his adolescence while also spending time with current day prep school students of color and their classmates to see how much has really changed inside the ivory tower. What he discovers along the way is the poignant and unapologetic truth about who really pays the consequences for yesterday’s accelerated desegregation and today’s racial naiveté. After the screening there will be a talk back with the director André Robert Lee. Buy tickets here.
