"I'm Not Racist...Am I?"
Film Screening & Discussion with Producer/Director André Robert Lee
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 7:00-9:00 PM
A. Palmer West Performing Arts Center, Benchmark School
What if this next generation could transcend racism? Over one year, 12 teens took a remarkable journey to face racism and white privilege, having the conversations many of us are too afraid to have. Once they push through naivete, guilt, and tears, what they learn may change us all.
Producer, director, and graduate of Germantown Friends School André Robert Lee presents a provocative investigation of how this next generation is going to confront racism. The film is a feature documentary following a diverse group of teens through a yearlong exploration to get to the heart of racism. Through some tense and painful moments, we see how these difficult conversations affect their relationships with friends and parents, and ultimately challenge them to look deep within themselves. By the end of their time together, we'll see these remarkable young people develop deeper bonds, a stronger resolve and a bigger, more significant definition of racism than any of us ever imagined. The filmmakers hope their discussions and insights will inspire others to recognize and interrupt racism in their own lives. To view a trailer of the film, click here.
Join us as we learn from the students’ year-long journey and share our impressions during the discussion led by the film's producer/director André Robert Lee.
