DIRECTOR: MICHèLE STEPHENSON AND JOE BREWSTER

Filmmakers Michèle Stephenson and Joe Brewster in person.

Thirteen years in the making, following two middle class African-American boys navigating life at a prestigious Manhattan prep school, and the implicit bias and systemic racism of elite private schooling. Stephenson, a co-founder, with St. Clair Bourne, of the Black Documentary Collective, writes, “His revolutionary vision, philosophy and guidance is needed more today than ever. I miss him. He is present with me in all the work I do.”
