Ravenswood Watch Party Series
“America to Me”
Watch Party 1: Race, Identity, Privilege and Education*
Wednesday, January 30th, 2019
4th Floor Makers’ Lab
Inspired by Langston Hughes’s poem, “Let America Be America Again,” America to Me is a documentary series that examines the complexities of race, identity, privilege, and education through the eyes of a diverse group of young people.
America to Me focuses on a year at Chicago’s Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRFHS), a school with many similarities to our own Ravenswood Elementary.
Ravenswood parents Tamara Drew and Kate Nelson will facilitate a screening of the first episode in the series, and lead a follow up discussion - What does it mean to be an equitable school community for all students and families?
Parents, staff, and community members are invited to join us for this critical experience-you won’t want to miss it!
*Recommended for students 7th grade and over.
Join us again!
