Upper Arlington Schools will host a community screening and discussion of “America to Me,” a 10-part documentary series filmed at Oak Park and River Forest High School in suburban Chicago. “America to Me” offers an in-depth look at the effects of race, equity, culture and privilege on educational opportunities in a well-resourced suburban community. Through this educational opportunity, the school district hopes to encourage the important discussions in our area that are directly tied to Upper Arlington’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in our new 2019-2022 strategic plan.
Weekly screenings and facilitated discussions of the first five episodes will be offered at Hastings Middle School from October 21 through November 18 and the final five episodes from January 13 through February 10. Parents/guardians, high school students and community members are invited to participate for any or all of this free 10-part series.
*Please note that the content and language of this program is not geared for younger audiences. The screenings are not recommended for students younger than high school age. Go to https://www.facebook.com/events/544006353071132/ for more information.
