'America to Me' screenings, discussions continue in January and February

Thank you to the many residents who have taken part in the community screenings and discussions of the “America to Me” documentary series, hosted by Upper Arlington Schools in partnership with the Upper Arlington Education Foundation.

This 10-part documentary series offers an in-depth look at the effects of race, equity, culture and privilege on educational opportunities at Oak Park and River Forest High School in suburban Chicago.

The community screening and discussion events will continue with the final five episodes beginning Monday, January 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the Hastings Middle School auditorium, 1850 Hastings Lane. Joining us for the February 3 event will be two special guests from Oak Park and River Forest High School: Dr. Jackie Moore, president of the Board of Education, and Dr. Joylynn Pruitt-Adams, superintendent.

These events are free and open to everyone in the community. Due to mature themes in the documentary series, the events are recommended for high school age or older. For a full schedule, please visit our website.
