High school hosting America to Me viewings

Library live-streaming canceled; join us at OPRF

Three years ago, Academy Award-nominated director Steve James filmed a year in the life of a dozen Oak Park and River Forest High School students. Due to overwhelming response and limited resources, we have canceled our plans to live-stream at the library. Please join us at Oak Park and River Forest High School in support of this community-wide event. Read more about the 10-part series about race and equity here and on the high school’s website »

Conversation, resource guides

Participant Media has created an America to Me Real Talk Guide (pdf), as well as episode guides, with tools to help anyone lead a watch party and host candid conversations about race, equity, and education. To access the series to host a watch party, discussion leaders will need to subscribe to STARZ. Download the guides, check out a glossary, and more »
