The Prep School Negro

This event is SOLD-OUT.  There may be a limited number of tickets released to the rush-line the day of the screening, 15 minutes before showtime.

WORLD PREMIERE André Robert Lee revisits the life-changing events of his adolescence when he gained a way out of Philadelphia’s ghettos with a scholarship to an elite prep school. As he moved into a different world, he grew distant from his sister and mother. In this poignant film, he explores thorny questions of race, education, opportunity and family. He also spends time with current day prep school students of color to see if anything has changed inside the ivory tower.
