Time: 7:00 pm
The Montclair Art Museum’s African American Cultural Committee (AACC) Film Forum celebrates the 50th Anniversary of The Harlem Preparatory School, or “Harlem Prep,” with a screening of the documentary “Step by Step” and panel discussion including the founders’ daughter Casey Carpenter.
Started in 1967, Harlem Prep was a pioneering experiment intended to turn high school dropouts into college graduates. The only high school in Central Harlem at the time, the school’s constant financial struggles and diverse population did not hinder it. “Step by Step” chronicles the teaching methods and unique culture that enabled the school to wildly exceed its goals, graduating 1,170 students in seven years.
FREE to attend, please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is sponsored by MAM’s African American Cultural Committee (AACC). For more information on the AACC, please contact William Jiggetts.
