Tested | Film Screening

Thursday, February 16, 2017 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Do standardized tests truly showcase a person’s intelligence? SATs and ACTs are a well-known part of the college application process. But what if your entire future rest upon a single test score taken when you were 13? Families with children in grades 8 or 9 who wish to apply to New York’s most prestigious schools must take a Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT). Although these tests appear to give students an equal chance at a bright future, their individual backgrounds may not give them equitable advantages. 

The APCC is hosting a screening of Tested, a film following the challenges of families and children of color trying to overcome barriers to move towards a better life. This film is being screened as part of Black History Month to highlight and provide comparative analysis of the challenges around access, equity, and racism that the Asian American, Black and other ethnic communities face. 

Members of Delta Phi Omega, Sorority, INC, will be facilitating a Q&A section with Curtis Chin, who is the writer/producer/director for the film after the screening.
