Documentary Screening on Educational Inequality - Jan 16
The Davenport Institute at the School of Public Policy (SPP) will host a screening of "Teach Us All," a documentary on educational inequality set against the backdrop of the 1957 Little Rock school crisis on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, from 6-7:30 pm in the Wilburn Auditorium on the Drescher Graduate Campus. The screening will be facilitated by SPP alumnus Evelyn G. Aleman, associate professor of public policy Luisa Blanco Raynal, and the film's director Sonia Lowman.
Sixty years after the Little Rock Nine faced violent resistance when desegregating Central High in Arkansas, America’s schools continue to represent the key battleground of the Civil Rights Movement. "Teach Us All" demonstrates powerful lessons from history within a timely context, emphasizing the need for unity and collective action to rectify the disparities among America’s children.
