America To Me Trailer

Starz‘s America To Me (2018) TV show trailer has been released. America To Me‘s plot synopsis: ““America To Me” follows students, teachers and administrators in suburban Chicago’s Oak Park and River Forest High School, one of the country’s highest performing and diverse public schools, over the course of a year, as they grapple with decades-long racial and educational inequities — in addition to the challenges that today’s teenagers face.

Digging deep into the experiences of a racially diverse student population, “America to Me” sparks candid conversations about what has succeeded and what has failed in the quest to achieve racial equity and overcome obstacles in our education system. In this part observational character story and part high-school confessional, James captures critical moments within this vibrant high-school ecosystem.”

Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself, Abacus: Small Enough to Jail) created and directed this documentary TV series. America To Me will be ten episodes long.
