A Work in Progress Screening of: Prep School Negro [Doc Watchers]
Director Andre Robert Lee brings his new work in progress, 'Prep School Negro' about his and others' experiences of being a scholarship student at an elite prep school.

A Work in Progress Screening of:
Prep School Negro
Dir. Andre Robert Lee, 2011
Andre Robert Lee and his older sister grew up in the ghettos of Philadelphia while their mother struggled to support them by working in a local factory. When Andre was 14 years old he received what his family believed to be a golden ticket -- a full scholarship to attend one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, Germantown Friends School. Elite education was Andre's way up and out, but at what price? Yes the tuition was covered but this new world cost him and his family much more than anyone could anticipated. In Prep School Negro Andre takes a journey back in time to revisit the events of his adolescence while also spending time with current-day prep school students of color and their classmates to see how much has really changed inside the ivory tower.

AFTER THE SCREENING: Q&A with Dir. Andre Robert Lee


Doc Watchers is a Harlem, community-based documentary film screening club and series.
