Summary:In September 1957, nine African American students were selected to integrate the previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas. The enrollment of these students known as the “Little Rock Nine” was met with violent, racially charged opposition and became a seminal mark in the Civil Rights Movement. Teach Us All juxtaposes narratives of current students in Little Rock, AK with recounts from two Little Rock Nine members, then expands it’s scope to case studies from New York City and Los Angeles. The film weaves together interviews, archival images, and news footage to present one of the most urgent civil rights issues of our time quality education for all children.
On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the 1957 Little Rock school desegregation crisis, educational inequality remains among the most urgent civil rights issues of our time. With its school district hanging in the balance following a state takeover in January 2015, Little Rock today presents a microcosm of the inequities and challenges manifesting in classrooms all across America. Through case studies in Little Rock, New York City, and Los Angeles, Teach Us All seeks to bring the critical lessons of history to bear on the current state of U.S. education and investigate: 60 years later, how far have we come-or not come-and how do we catalyze action from here?
