A Reckoning Round Up
On Martin Luther King Day, January 17th, A Reckoning in Boston made its national premiere on PBS. Started in the Boston Clemente classroom, Reckoning follows two students in their lives inside and outside the classroom and is a testament to the power of the humanities as well as the real and lasting damage of systemic racism.
If you missed the premiere, you can still catch the film on the PBS streaming app. And you can read the many articles and responses in the press to this honest and impactful film. We at the Clemente Course are proud to have our story included alongside the story of Kafi, Carl, and James.
