Facilitated by the film’s creator, André Robert Lee

For: All Educators, especially School Leaders

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Asynchronous screening of the film

Discussion begins at 10:00 a.m.

As you continue to commit and invest in purposeful work to address institutional racism in schools, NJAIS invites you to attend a screening of the 2012 film Prep School Negro by film maker and producer André Robert Lee. This screening will be followed by a discussion to unpack the @BlackAt movement.

Join André Robert Lee as he shares his film, his experience as an independent school student of color, and his expertise in race, racism, and guidance for strategic action plans for schools to move forward. This opportunity allows you to see the film, perhaps in a new light, while reflecting upon the posts that reveal or make public real student experiences in our schools.

$85 per registrant, Member Schools

$135 per registrant, NonMember Schools

André Robert Lee is a beloved skilled facilitator who has guided difficult discussions about race and racism for the past 15 years in schools, community centers, companies, churches, and conferences in every region of the country for people of all ages. He’s a professional storyteller and among the many films he produced and/or directed is The Prep School Negro, a documentary that depicts his personal journey as a high school scholarship student, exploring what he gained intellectually but lost emotionally when he attended an elite private school in Philadelphia. He is also the producer of I’m Not Racist… Am I?, a documentary that follows 12 teens as they take a year to learn about racism. Since 2009, Mr. Lee has led hundreds of discussions about how institutions can move beyond diversity initiatives and create a sense of belonging for underrepresented people, doing so with clarity, empathy, warmth, and stone-cold knowledge. He has been certified as a facilitator for difficult conversations and travels around the U.S. facilitating post-screening discussions with audiences of all sizes, conducting workshops, and leading professional development seminars. André Robert Lee also guides groups on civil rights tours in the deep South, answering questions, interviewing activists who were a part of history, and helping people learn how they can be a part of change. André Robert Lee is also a consultant for Connecticut College’s Mellon Undergraduate Research Program, a member on the Advisory Board for The Doe Fund, and a juror for Academy Awards Student Competition. Andre earned his undergraduate degree from Connecticut College and his Master’s of Teaching at Tufts University.
