Join the Teachers College Rural Student Group, the EPSA Student Advisory Council, and TC faculty members, as we view and discuss the hour-long film Class of ‘27. Filmed in the hollows of Appalachia, on native lands of the Upper Midwest and in West Coast migrant camps, the duPont-Columbia Award-winning Class of ’27 presents distinct yet complementary personal stories from places too often ignored in America. Each of the three portraits demonstrates that children from distressed communities, despite their circumstances, are more likely to grow into productive and civically engaged adults if they receive support in their earliest years. Committed to supporting the children’s potential, each community is a place of hope, inspiration and resilience.
