A special pre-release screening of America to Me, followed by a conversation between series' participants and local leaders, as part of the series' 10-city tour.
Attending: series director Steve James and series participants Jessica Stovall and Ke'Shawn Kumsa
ABOUT THE TOUR: Alongside the release of America to me on STARZ on August 26th, Participant Media is launching a civic engagement and educational outreach campaign aimed at inspiring dialogue and action around the issues of race and equity highlighted in the docu-series.
Each week, in a different city, a cross-section of influencers, stakeholders, educators, students, parents and politicians will come together for a pre-screening of that week's episode and a panel discussion that helps drive engagement and a call to action for locally-hosted, candid conversations about race and equity.
The ten cities include: Atlanta, Detroit, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Dallas, Charlotte, Oakland/SF and Chicago.
