Free & Open to the Public

Wednesday, June 19th at 7pm

In a country where autistic kids don't have a right to go to school, how would you teach your children to survive without you?

Join us for a screening of the documentary 'Don't Forget Me' with Washington Post Journalist, Pulitzer Grant Winner, Executive Producer and Creator, Jackie Spinner.


About the Film:

'Don't Forget Me' follows three Moroccan families with children on the autism spectrum whose parents are struggling to educate them in a country where children with disabilities do not have a right to go to school. The documentary was inspired by Jackie Spinner's two Moroccan-born sons, who also are autistic and now living in the United States. Spinner, a journalist and former Baghdad bureau chief for The Washington Post, returned to Morocco with her sons in 2017 to make this film.

About Jackie Spinner:

Jackie Spinner is an associate professor of journalism at Columbia College Chicago, where she oversees the photojournalism program and advises the student veteran organization. She was a staff writer for The Washington Post for 14 years and covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2017, Spinner was the recipient of a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and spent three months in Morocco reporting for The Washington Post and Christian Science Monitor and producing her first documentary about how children with autism are educated.
