Film and Conversation: The Right to Read

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for a screening of The Right to Read presented by Brooklyn Org in partnership with Bed Stuy Early Childhood Development Center, READ 718, and Brooklyn Book Bodega.
The Right to Read shares the stories of an NAACP activist, a teacher, and two American families who fight to provide our youngest generation with the most foundational indicator of life-long success: the ability to read. A reception will be held in the theater lobby from 7:00-7:30PM.
NYC’s Deputy Chancellor of Early Childhood Education Dr. Kara Ahmed, Ed.D. will provide welcoming remarks before the screening, and the event will conclude with a conversation between Brooklyn Org’s President & CEO Dr. Jocelynne Rainey, educators, and local parents.
