Oakman Film debut at Detroit Board of Education
On Monday, September 29 at 5 pm, the Detroit Board of Education will hold a special meeting at Renaissance High School in Detroit to mark the end of the 18-month period of Emergency Management under PA 436. The meeting will open with the debut of a new 30-minute film by NYC filmmaker Kate Levy entitled Because They Could: The Fight for Oakman School. Levy's film documents a primary example of the destructiveness of state-imposed Emergency Management in Detroit. Despite parents’ success in exposing the falsity of every claim used to justify the school’s closure, Governor Snyder’s Emergency Manager still closed the school.
The showing will feature comments by Oakman parent leader Aliya Moore.
We hope you can make it.
