Finding the Gold Within

This documentary follows six black men from Akron, Ohio, through their first years of college. Despite their high levels of confidence and critical thinking, the stark reality of being away from their families and communities brings a sense of crisis.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Al Young (Professor and Chair, Dept. of Sociology; Professor of Afro-American and African Studies, Public Policy; Author of African American Boys and Men: Exclusion and Containment), Lumas Helaire (U-M Associate Director, Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives, Project Director of GEAR UP), Devon Degraffenreed (Administrative Assistant, Michigan Community Scholars Program; B.A. 2011, U-M), and Dan H. Green (Coordinator of Diversity Initiatives, Michigan Community Scholars Program; B.A. 2014, U-M; 2nd-year MSW student).

Presented by the Michigan Community Scholars Program, Department of Sociology, Office of Academic Multicultural Affairs and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA).
