Masterfully told with pointy precision, AMERICAN PROMISE spans 12 years in the lives of two middle class black families as they navigate their family experience when they choose to send their two young sons to a prestigious Manhattan private school.
With a sharp and merciless camera, filmmakers/parents Joe and Michele intimately document the struggles as these talented boys deal with stereotypes and identity issues, while their parents juggle high expectations against the social and cultural obstacles their sons face. Convinced that education is the key to success in the 21rst century, these families make enormous sacrifices for an elite education. But will the rewards be there? AMERICAN PROMISE ultimately confronts the question.
A film by Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson
