Beyond City Limits- Backyard Film Screening

Please join EPIP Los Angeles for a backyard film screening of the award-winning documentary Raising Bertie. The film is an intimate six year portrait of three African American boys growing into adulthood in rural North Carolina, exploring complex relationships between generational poverty, educational inequity, and race. 

Rural minorities like the youth in Bertie represent some of the nation’s most vulnerable and least visible individuals, existing at that critical juncture of rural disenfranchisement and the achievement gap for young people of color. Too often the focus in philanthropy and social change movements are primarily on the needs of urban and non-rural youth, largely ignoring this vital segment of America. We will go beyond the city limits of Los Angeles during the 96-minute runtime of the film focusing on this population that so rarely gets a spotlight.
