Davis documentary to be screened in Sacramento

From page A7 | December 21, 2012 |

RSVPs are due Saturday for a free public screening of the documentary “From the Community to the Classroom,” produced by Jann Murray-García of Davis. The film will be shown from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Guild Theater, 2828 35th St. in the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento.

The documentary tells the story of how a partnership of youth and adults helped the Davis community confront racism.

“The film opens with a racial incident in January 2003 and the community’s initial response,” a news release said. “It continues to trace the community over the next seven years: how tension in the community rose, how a group of young people began to speak out and have the hard discussions about race that adults were putting off, and how an innovative youth-adult partnership helped the community break out of its denial and begin to address its problems with courage and with its eyes open.”

The film features new lesson plans and discussion guides for teachers, activists, youths and families, as well as an update on equity data in Davis schools.

“This film features Davis,but it could be about many communities across the country,” the news release said. “Our hope is that folks, especially young people and their educators across the country and the world, can learn ways to address racial inequality in their own schools and communities.”

Those who would like to attend next month are asked to RSVP by Saturday to Faye Kennedy at 916-484-5025 or [email protected].
