TELL YOUR FRIENDS



A screening of the new documentary, “Stories from an Undeclared War” that tells the powerful story of 150 at-risk Long Beach students who were once considered unteachable. But inspired by teacher Erin Gruwell and the writings of Anne Frank, the students discover a new way to express themselves. The documentary follows the students’ story from the first day of freshman year in 1994 to the present day. In a racially divided community where adolescents have been exposed to drugs, gang warfare, and homicides, Gruwell makes it her goal to teach the students to put down their fists and guns and to pick up a pen. To do this, she juxtaposes their typical reality in urban America with some of the worst examples of man’s inhumanity to man. The once-hardened teens have an epiphany that they live in an undeclared war, and writing becomes their salvation.
A conversation with Erin Gruwell and several of the original Freedom Writers will follow the screening.
