Join us for a viewing and discussion of the award winning documentary by Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson Lee. David C. Miller, M.Ed. the Chief Visionary Officer and Co-Founder of the Urban Leadership Institute, L.L.C. will facilitate the discussion. Mr. Miller, has built a national reputation as a leader among people who focus on improving the lives of children, youth and families.

A documentary 14 years in the making, American Promise provides a rare look into the lives of two middle class Black families as they navigate the ups and downs of parents and educating their sons. Through the intimate experiences of these two families, the documentary reveals complicated truths about parenting, while challenging commonly held assumptions about educational access in the 21st century. Ultimately, it asks each of us: What is the American Promise?
