This looks like an amazing story. My high school roommate was a "prep school negro" and I would be interested to see this film and understand more about her experience "back then" in the late 1970's. Thanks for drawing my attention to Andre Lee's story.

Yes, I missed a screening in Philly due to a prior commitment, but I'm eager to see this also. You can subscribe via his website to notification emails re: screenings, etc. Good to hear from you, Laura! Hope all's well!
