Do you have a strategic vision for equity in your school? Do you feel comfortable talking about race? Join Participant Media’s America to Me team for a “Real Talk” about racial equity in your school community. The groundbreaking series, ‘America to Me’ from Oscar®-nominee Steve James (“Hoop Dreams”) deals with issues of race, equity, culture and privilege within a well-resourced, racially integrated public high school, seen through the eyes of students, teachers, administrators, and families. We will use clips from America to Me to ignite conversations that identify structural inequities in the docuseries, and then talk about what is going on in your school. This is a not-to-be missed opportunity to discuss these complex and crucial issues with your peers.

Presenters: Dr. Ebony Green, Senior Director of Equity and Access, Institute for Student Achievement; Lisa Zimble, Impact Producer- “America to Me”, Participant Media; Zakyree Wallace, Impact Coordinator- “America to Me”, Participant Media
