“American Promise is more than a documentary; it is part of a bigger, ongoing movement about changing perceptions of-and behavior and values with respect to-young African-American males in our society.” Documentary Magazine
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.
Also showing in San Francisco at the Roxie and in Berkeley at Rialto Cinemas in Elmwood.
