American Promise

When: Mon., Feb. 3, 6 p.m. 2014

"They told us that our son is a hard-to-manage guy. ... They don't know him." While it may be a statement spoken by many a parent, it carries extra weight in American Promise, which follows two black friends through 13 years of schooling in the mostly white world of private independent schools. The movie, made by one boy's Brooklyn-based parents — a filmmaker and a psychiatrist — won a Jury Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and will debut on PBS at 11 tonight. But five hours earlier, at 6, Colorado College's Education Department will also screen American Promise for free at Armstrong Theatre (14 E. Cache la Poudre St.,, with light refreshments and a Q&A to follow. — Kirk Woundy
