BCH is proud to screen TEACH US ALL, in partnership with ARRAY. Through case studies in Little Rock, New York City and Los Angeles, TEACH US ALL examines one of the most urgent civil rights issues of our time; a quality education for all children. TEACH US ALL chronicles the landmark 1957 “Little Rock Crisis” were a group of African-American students known as the Little Rock Nine courageously attempted to defy the notion that skin color should determine educational access by integrating an all-white southern high school to the present day disparities in access and inequalities in education that are culminating into a re-segregation of schools across the nation.
TEACH US ALL seeks to bring the critical lessons of history to bear on the current state of U.S. education system and investigate: 60 years later, how far have we come – or not come – and where do we go from here?
ARRAY, founded in 2010 by Ava DuVernay as the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement (AFFRM), is a community-based distribution collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers.
