Chicago Public Schools teacher to discuss race in American schools with Eve Ewing

This winter, scholar and activist Eve Ewing organized a series of documentaries exploring the central role that race has played in the experience of schooling in America. What constitutes a “good” school, and for whom? Who is included in the vision of education as the great equalizer, and who is left out?

I'm honored that Eve invited me to join her at Hyde Park's Harper Theater on Thursday, February 21 for a film viewing and conversation.

The film that evening is Precious Knowledge , the 2012 documentary following the fight over Mexican American studies programs in Arizona public schools.

The setting is casual, conversational, informal – an opportunity for interested viewers from a range of backgrounds to respond together to the themes in the films.

The event from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. is free and open to the public.
