"First Generation" film screening and discussion March 1 at Longfellow

On Friday, March 1, 5:30-8:30 PM, there will be a film screening and discussion of First Generation at Longfellow Middle School, 1500 Derby St. The film is about individuals who strive to be the first members of their families to attend college and the challenges that they face. This event is part of the College and Career Day, hosted by UC Berkeley, Center for Educational Partnerships and the Berkeley Alliance.

According to this week's edition of A+ News from the district (which you can sign up for on the district webpage): "Families are encouraged to join an evening of dinner, film, and discussion of a documentary focused on the issues of college access for first-generation and low-income students."

This is an excellent opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion with other members of our community. 

Here's the trailer for the film:
