American High School

60 mins

These high school students are being followed for one academic year, both inside and outside the classroom. This is a time and place where life-long friendships are made; where confidence is established and lost; where sexuality is explored and hearts are broken; where career dreams begin to come true, or are put aside; and where one mistake can change the course of your life forever.

The school is in many ways like any other in America. Except, the student body is 99.1% African-American. As the tenure of America’s first black President comes to an end – an era heralded as entering a ‘post-racial’ on his election – this series will reveal what it’s really like to grow up African-American in today’s USA.
