about this event
2022 MLK “Dream Weekend” will be January 14 thru 17. On Friday, January 14 at 6 p.m. we are going to be showing a documentary at AAPAC entitled “The American Promise.” There will be a panel discussion with middle and high school students.
We would like to invite students, parents, and staff of APS to come out and attend the event as we celebrate the great contributions and life of Dr.Martin Luther King!
ABOUT THE FILM:
American Promise is an intimate and provocative account, recorded over 12 years, of the experiences of two middle-class African-American boys who entered a very prestigious--and historically white--private school on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The Dalton School had made a commitment to recruit students of color, and five-year-old best friends Idris Brewster and Oluwaseun (Seun) Summers of Brooklyn were two of the gifted children who were admitted. The boys were placed in a demanding environment that provided new opportunities and challenges, if little reflection of their cultural identities.
