Event Type: Screening
In recognition of the national conversation on Immigration Reform we are presenting two award-winning documentaries about migrants and our current civil and human rights struggles.

A high school ethnic studies program becomes the center of a civil rights struggle in Precious Knowledge. At Tucson High School, ethnic studies programs have improved graduation rates among Latino students. But some state politicians think ethnic studies promote “racial solidarity” and anti-Americanism. When books are banned and the programs eliminated, teachers and students fight back in a modern civil rights struggle.

Each year, thousands of Latin American migrants travel hundreds of miles to the United States, with many making their way on the tops of freight trains. Roughly five percent of those traveling alone are children. As the United States continues to debate immigration reform, the documentary Which Way Home looks the issue through the eyes of children who face the harrowing journey with enormous courage and resourcefulness.
