Roosevelt High School: Beyond Black & White – Online Documentary Premiere

January 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In recognition of Black Lives Matter at School Week starting on 1/31/2022

50 Years Later, Seattle Still Struggles with Race & Diversity

Learn how we can do better in this
documentary about race and education,
based on the experiences of Roosevelt High School
yesterday and today.

Race is one of the burning issues of the day, but does your family talk about it? The topic is uncomfortable and complicated. Yet the conversations need to happen. Young people are entering an increasingly diverse world. To thrive, they must be prepared to work with people who look different or come from different backgrounds.

The film Roosevelt High School: Beyond Black & White is a production of Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity (RARE), a Seattle non-profit formed to promote racial equity, with a focus on schools and their communities. RARE offers scholarships, this film, and monthly Open Discussions. Its newest initiative is Connections, a program to bring together students of different backgrounds for fun, meaningful experiences outside of school.


Premiere Monday, January 31, 2022 at 7PM PST
Followed by Q&A with Panel of Students, Staff, Parents, & Alumni
Including SPS Board President Brandon Hersey & RHS Principal “Q” Hollins
