THE PREP SCHOOL NEGRO, directed by André Robert Lee (a Thursday Interview participant) will be touring and airing this fall. The doc will screen at the Maysles Documentary Center on September 19 and 20. Each screening will be followed by a talkback session. PBS Network World Channel will air the documentary on September 23 at 8pm.
I highly recommend that you see the film — it is a moving, honest portrait of how the intertwining threads of family, identity and opportunity impacted André’s life when he received a full scholarship to one of the most prestigious prep school’s in the country.
