SF Friends School Community Film Night featuring “American Promise”

San Francisco Friends School is proud to present "American Promise." The film will be shown Friday November 14 from 6-8:30pm in our Black Box Theater. 

"American Promise" spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson, middle-class African-American parents in Brooklyn, N.Y., turn their cameras on their son, Idris, and his best friend, Seun, who make their way through one of the most prestigious private schools in the country. Chronicling the boys' divergent paths from kindergarten through high school graduation at Manhattan's Dalton School, this provocative, intimate documentary presents complicated truths about America's struggle to come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity.
Seating is limited, so please RSVP to reserve your spot. RSVP here for pizza and the movie.
SF Friends School is located in the Mission District at 250 Valencia St. If you have questions please contact Guybe Slangen
