World Premiere Of American Promise At Sundance

Entertainment 21 Jan 2013   »   by TheWhatItDo

American Promise premieres today, Monday, January 21, 2013 at Sundance Film Festival. Directors, Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, capture the 12-year journey of two African-American families in the pursuit of opportunity through the education of their sons.

Set against the backdrop of a persistent educational achievement gap that dramatically affects African-American boys at all socioeconomic levels across the country, AMERICAN PROMISE puts a face to the unique social and emotional needs of these boys and poignantly calls into question the commonly held assumptions about access, resources and what really influences academic performance.
