An American Promise

Produced by

When the elite, and mostly white, Dalton School in Manhattan wanted to diversify its student body, Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson enrolled their son in Kindergarten. The years at Dalton were not easy for Idris or his parents, who chronicled everything on film. Idris is now in college, and the film of his coming-of-age is called American Promise.


"Plasticities" and "Anonanymal" by Andrew Bird
