#Repost @kartemquin // I’m so proud to be designing the on-screen graphics for this series with the amazing collaborative Kartemquin team. ・・・ HELLO! We have more news! AMERICA TO ME, the epic 10-part series directed by Steve James will world premiere at @sundanceorg 2018 as part of the fest’s debut ‘Indie Episodic’ program. . . AMERICA TO ME is a year-long immersion into one of Chicago’s most progressive and diverse public schools, located in suburban Oak Park. Both intimate and epic, the limited series explores America’s charged state of race, culture and education today with unprecedented depth and scope.

Festive lit trees on the walk home last night. Went to see the first part of an indie episodic series called America to Me. So good. Most broadly, it’s about race and educational disparities set at a high school in Chicago. There are a lot of parallels between what I saw in the series and home in Baltimore except that our schools basically aren’t even integrated. The students were great. Unfortunately we had to leave early to get home for my daughter’s bedtime (I hadn’t realized the length before buying tix). Anyway, this is a must-watch, so keep an eye out for it because apparently Starz picked it up! . . . . #parkcity #television #tree #christmaslights #nature #film #sundance #sundancefilmfestival #sundance2018 #travelwithkids #datenight #momlife #indie #race #racism #education #americaneducation #urgent #oprf @sundanceorg @starz

You need know nothing of the school or community essayed in America To Me in order to benefit from the film's insights into how race impacts and influences public education in the U.S. #AmericaToMe #SteveJames #LangstonHughes #Sundance #SundanceFilmFestival

I'm just going to leave this here. During this time it is very important to stick together with love. We all have our causes to fight for. Instead of fighting for them use your heart to empower others. Instead of letting our individual ideas separate us we need to stay strong together. Love what makes us different. Change is on the way but it is our job to dig deep and love ourselves and love each other. Only together can true change happen. When we separate it only brings more fear and hate to our existence. I'm holding space for America today. If you would like to join me feel free. #poetry #america #fear #fearless #love #loveinlove #fullmoon2017 #fullmooncapricorn #letgo #fullmoknritual #life #oneness #universaloneness #consciousness #nature #theflow #chakura #earth #eb #intuitivementor #meditation #collectiveconsciousness #lightworker #spirituality #spiritalawakening #spiritual #yoga #yogi #holdingspaceforamerica

It’s been a long day, and it’s a crazy adventure that keeps going. You’ll be able to see it on @starz sometime in the fall. Thanks to @agoraphone, Steve and the @kartemquin team and @participant. Most importantly, thank you to the kids of OPRF and their families for trusting us with your stories. #AmericatoMe

#tbt to the amazing premiere and my embarrassing discovery that I am the most awkward red carpet picture poser ever. Watch this progression. #catchingflies photocred: Abimages
Tonight @sundanceorg ! #americatome
I loved rubbing elbows with education thought leaders from around the country at #nsvfsummit, and the excitement around #AmericatoMe was contagious. My only sad moment was realizing that this is possibly the last name badge that will have Oak Park and River Forest high school on it 😩.
Tonight is the premiere of the docu-series, #AmericaToMe at @sundanceorg, a series that sparks extremely candid conversations about the triumphs and failures of our country’s school system. Coming to @starz this fall.
