About the Film

American Promise spans 13 years as Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson, middle-class African American parents in Brooklyn, NY, turn their cameras on their son and his best friend who make their way through one of the most prestigious private schools in the country.  Chronicling the boys divergent paths from kindergarten through high school graduation, this provocative, intimate documentary presents complicated truths about Americas struggle to come of age on issues of race, class and opportunity.  (www.americanpromise.org)
