The official Starz description for America To Me reads, “The documentary follows students, teachers, and administrators in suburban Chicago’s Oak Park and River Forest High School over the course of a year as they grapple with racial and educational inequities.”
Episode 1 of 10 is titled What’s the Big Deal About Oak Park and deals with the fallout of a Black Lives Matter assembly.
Early buzz surrounding America To Me has been nothing short of stellar. Even with Steve James’ Hoop Dreams pedigree, the documentary hits on the importance of racial equality and how our country is still struggling to achieve it.
America To Me is a selection of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
