Free screening of “American Promise” next Tuesday at Langston Hughes

A new film that tracks two middle-class black boys for 13 years, including the time they spent at the prestigious Dalton School in New York City, will be shown Tuesday in Seattle at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute, 104 17th Ave. S.

The free screening of “American Promise” is intended to spark discussions about how we educate children, the hopes and hurdles all parents face, and the challenges for black families and their sons.

The film is being presented by the African American Leadership Forum, the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute and the Multicultural Education Rights Alliance.

A panel discussion with four speakers will follow the screening — Geneva Gay from the University of Washington, Trish Millines Dziko of the Technology Access Foundation, Emijah Smith of the Children’s Alliance, and Tilman Smith of Child Care Resources. Don Felder of Casey Family Services will facilitate.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The film is scheduled to start at 6:15 p.m. and the panel discussion will follow at 7:40 p.m. Seating is first-come, first serve.
