You're Invited

Join us at one of the free screenings of The Right to Read Film, a documentary produced by LeVar Burton (yes, THE LeVar Burton from Reading Rainbow). The star of the documentary is Kareem Weaver, Oakland NAACP's 2nd Vice President and Chair of its Education Committee.

The film shares the stories of Mr. Weaver, a teacher, and two American families who fight to provide our youngest generation with the most foundational indicator of life-long success: the ability to read!

We have two chances for our community to see this important film-- one at Browing Cinema in Notre Dame's DeBartolo Performing Arts Center on April 22 at 1:30 PM and one at St. Joseph Co Public library downtown on May 6 at 2:00 PM. Both events are free and open to the public.

Each screening will be followed by brief reactions from a panel representing a variety of perspectives, and we highly encourage audience members to join in the conversation. Your expertise would be so valuable to have in these community conversations. There will also be a post-screening dessert reception at each screening for those interested in continuing the dialogue.
