Film Screening of STEP
National Archives at Kansas City
Kansas City, MO
On Monday, March 11 at 6:00 p.m., the National Archives in partnership with the America Jazz Museum and Greater KC Black History Study Group, will host an evening film screening of STEP. This program will take place at the American Jazz Museum, 1616 E. 18th Street, Kansas City, MO. Reservations are requested for this free program.
Set in the heart of Baltimore, this film documents the experiences of an all-girls high school step team as they try to become the first in their families to attend college. The girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. This all female school is reshaping the futures of its students’ lives by making it their goal to have every member of the senior class accepted to and graduate from college, many of whom will be the first in their family to do so.
All events listed in the calendar are free unless noted.
