“America to Me” Screening & Speaker Series | Stanford

Come to the “America to Me” screening and speaker series where the 10-part docu-series America to Me will be used to discuss the complexities of race and equity in US schools. The series follows a year in the life of a racially diverse, well-resourced school outside Chicago.

Following each screening a Stanford professor will give a short talk inspired by the content of that episode.

The talks will span several disciplines and theoretical perspectives, including Critical Race Theory, History, Psychology, Youth Development, Film Studies, Educational Policy, and Teacher Education, and Humanities. Students and audience members will engage in critical discussion around race and equity in education.
