Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY has debuted a new theatrical trailer for the education documentary, Teach Us All.
We recently report that the prolific filmmaker’s film collective has acquired Sonia Lowman’s education film, Teach Us All. It’s set to debut on Netflix on September 25, to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock Nine entering the previously-segregated Little Rock Central High School.
The film’s release will be accompanied by a series of one-night and limited engagements across the country including New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Raleigh and Seattle.
The film’s description reads, “In September 1957, nine African American students were selected to integrate the previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas. The enrollment of these students known as the “Little Rock Nine” was met with violent, racially charged opposition and became a seminal mark in the Civil Rights Movement. Lowman’s Teach Us All juxtaposes narratives of current students in Little Rock, AK with recounts from two Little Rock Nine members, then expands its scope to case studies from New York City and Los Angeles. The film weaves together interviews, archival images, and news footage to present one of the most urgent civil rights issues of our time; quality education for all children.”
Teach Us All is the seventeenth feature acquired by ARRAY, the last being Damani Baker’s The House on Coco Road.
