This is a great film for social justice minded students and their parents. Well, it’s a great film for everyone, but might hold a special interest for those asking tough questions about race, poverty and the American dream. There are hard topics in the film. I am quite comfortable saying that the film is appropriate for high school students. Possibly younger (I saw it with my elementary-aged daughter), and definitely high school. Definitely a must-see for adults!

Southeast 67 <http://southeast67.com/> tells the story of a group of 67 African American students from Washington, D.C. who were promised college scholarships by area businessman, Stewart Bainum, via the I Have a Dream program in 1988. A group of rising seventh-graders struggling with survival in an impoverished neighborhood devastated by the crack epidemic, were offered a chance to benefit from an ambitious educational program that fought - against all odds - to make a difference in their lives  Spanning two decades, their story movingly reveals the complex challenges facing kids in underserved communities, and the hope - and anguish - of trying to seize an improbable dream.

Steve Bumbaugh <http://southeast67.com/dreamer_steve_b.php>, was one of the educators at Kramer Junior High School from 1990 to 1994.  Today, Steve leads work to ensure students access and maximize college and career opportunities. As head of the College and Career Access division at the College Board, Steve oversees enrollment and financial aid programs, the Access to Opportunity™ initiative, and scholarship programs. Additionally, he oversees the partnership with Khan Academy to provide free, high quality SAT preparation for students, as well as the partnership with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. These efforts are designed to increase college readiness and college completion for all students, with a special focus on lower-income students, first-generation college students, and students of color.

Steve is passionate about expanding access, equity, and excellence. A former classroom teacher, he led the CityBridge Foundation’s Breakthrough Schools: D.C. competition, which works with public schools to increase achievement through challenging, personalized learning. Prior to CityBridge, Steve served as president of the ECMC Foundation and led development for its education portfolio.
