Making History: How Filmmaker & Educator André Robert Lee Prompts Student Dialogues Around Race

This February, we’re bringing you a special series of conversations for black history month called “Making History.” In this series, we’re highlighting black leaders in education, who have either inspired the next generation through example or directly through their work.

Up first, we’ll hear from André Robert Lee of Point Made Learning and Point Made Films. He’s an organizer focused on tackling race relations in the US — through talks, presentations and film. His films include The Prep School Negro and I’m Not Racist, Am I?

Listen in to our interview with André to find out what he’s doing to get students talking about these touchy subjects, and what kind of results he’s seen from his work.
