Here is a discussion we hosted at Johnson State College following a screening of the film.


American Promise

A documentary 13 years in the making, "American Promise" follows the journeys of two African-American boys and their families from kindergarten to high school graduation and provides a powerful narrative about the lives of African-American boys and their families, as well as the factors that contribute to the achievement gap in education for black males.
