Dear Parents and Families,
Here is a link to Our Chance, a virtual film festival running the month of October that highlights the intersection of race, education, and youth empowerment. The films, feature-length and shorts, are separated into three segments: Confronting Our History (October 6-12), Examining “School” (October 13-19), and Exploring New Possibilities (October 20-27). Some of these films are new, while others have been around for a bit. All segments include conversation guides and additional resources. It is our hope that as family units and a larger community we continue to reflect on race in Yellow Springs and beyond. One note: we ask that as parents you preview films for suitability for younger children.
Please expect continued information sharing and conversation as the year continues.
