The Prep School Negro
Step into the shoes of André Robert Lee who grew up in the ghettos of Philadelphia. At 14, André received what his family believed to be a golden ticket - a full scholarship to attend one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country. Elite education was Andre's way up and out, but at what price? In this dynamic new film, filmmaker André Robert Lee takes a journey back in time to revisit the events of his adolescence while also spending time with current day prep school students of color and their classmates to see how much has really changed inside the ivory tower. Following a Q&A with the director André Robert Lee, join students from DC independent schools in a response to the film, organized by Edmund Burke School.
