For Ahkeem / For the Record – Tuesday, January 9, 2018 from 6:30 PM – 8 PM at Nickelodeon Theatre, 1607 Main St, Columbia, South Carolina 29201. An intimate portrait of Daje Shelton, a seventeen year old whom a judge orders to enroll in an alternative school. This emotional coming of age story unfolds against the backdrop of the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, Missouri, illuminating the nuances of St. Louis’ troubled educational and economic systems and the deeply personal experiences of the students they impact.

A post-screening conversation about the experiences of youth in today’s education system accompanies the program; the discussion will be led by Josh Gupta-Kagan, Assistant Professor of Law at USC, Tiffany Grant, community leader and social worker, and Dr. Maxine Barker, psychologist at the SC Department of Juvenile Justice.
