Raising Bertie is an award-winning, six-year portrait of three young African American men coming-of-age in North Carolina?s rural Bertie County. The film shines a spotlight on the unique challenges and opportunities facing rural youth of color. Following the film, we will have the Former Secretary of Education, and President and CEO of The Education Trust, John King, moderate a conversation with Vivian Saunders, Community Leader & Executive Director of the Hive; Davonte "Dada" Harrell, film subject; Monique Miles, Director of the Opportunity Youth Incentive Fund; and Margaret Byrne, director.
