Community Cinema is a ground-breaking public education and civic engagement initiative featuring monthly screenings of films from the Emmy® Award-winning PBS series INDEPENDENT LENS. Every month between September and June, WEDU and Community Cinema bring together community members and organizations to learn, discuss and get involved in today’s critical social issues.

The Graduates/Los Graduados

The series provides a rare platform for six Latino students to tell us in their own words about the challenges they have faced and how through their support networks they are defying the odds to graduate and, more importantly, to find their voice and become role models.
