Monday February 28, 2018 - I'm Not a Racist...Am I - Film and Discussion
presented by UPG, Cheltenham African American Alliance and
Cheltenham School District
“I’m Not Racist ... Am I?” is a feature documentary about how this next generation is going to confront racism. They asked 12 teenagers from New York City to come together for one school year to talk about race and privilege in a series of workshops and in conversations with friends and family members.
We hope that by documenting their experience, the film will inspire others to recognize and interrupt racism in their own lives.
The screening will be followed by a talkback with Andre Robert Lee, the film’s producer.
