Come join "LOUDD" Conversations for the showing of " Elementary Genocide" Pt1, a documentary film about the School to Prison Pipeline.A nationwide system of local, state and federal education and public safety policies that pushes students out of school and into the criminal justice system. Discussion will follow the film.

Elementary Genocide is a documentary executive produced by award winning journalist/filmmakerRahiem ShabazzThe documentary appeals to a wide general viewership by addressing the social, cultural, political and personal ramifications of how the federal government allots money to each state, to build prions based on the failure rate of 4th and 5th graders. In America, where half of the 4th grade is reading below grade level and more African-American males are in jail than are in college, ElementaryGenocide serves as a striking reminder of a flawed system in need of repair.

Elementary Genocide consists of candid interviews and voice-over narration culled from original interviews from professors, teachers, best selling authors, children, parents, celebrities, etc. A few notable appearances are made by Dr. Umar Abdullah Johnson, Dr. Boyce Watkins, Supreme Understanding, Dr. Torrence Stephens, Tracey Syphax, Killer Mike, Kadidra Stewart, Edward M. Garnes Jr., Okorie Johnson and Sistah Iminah.
