Please join us for the Quetzal Critical Film Series showing of the movie Stolen Education on Thursday, February 6, 2014, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Alkek Teaching Theatre. No charge.
Stolen Education is a powerful documentary about how Mexican American students were not only segregated by race, but were required to attend three years of first grade to overcome their "language problem" in Driscoll, Texas in the 1950s. In this documentary, producer Dr. Enrique Alemán Jr. visits present day Driscoll, Texas and captures the remarkable first-hand testimonials of those children, now in their 60s, who were retained in the first grade and who testified in court.
Producer of Stolen Education, Dr. Enrique Alemán Jr. from the University of Utah, will be at the screening and will lead a Questions and Answers session following the screening. He is also leading a special discussion on Stolen Education for faculty members and graduate students on Friday, February 7th 9:30-11am in ED 3066.
