The Germantown Friends School Multicultural Parents Alliance; Alumni of Color Initiative; International Students Program; Education Justice Club; and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invite parents, students (grades 6 and up), friends, and neighbors to a screening of the documentary film "Quest" in celebration of Black History Month.
Filmed with vérité intimacy for almost a decade, "Quest" is the moving portrait of an African-American family in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, Christopher “Quest” Rainey, and his wife Christine’a “Ma Quest” Rainey navigate the strife that sometimes grips their North Philly neighborhood as they raise a family and cultivate a creative sanctuary for the community in their home music studio. Epic in scope, "Quest" is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, healing, and hope.
Director Jonathan Olshefski and the films' stars will be in attendance at the screening.
If you have any questions or would like more information about this event, please contact Michelle Palmer, Alumni Diversity Manager.
