In feature documentary The Prep School Negro, André Robert Lee journeys back in time to revisit the events of his adolescence. He also spends time with current day prep school students of color and their classmates to see how much has really changed inside the ivory tower. What he discovers along the way is the poignant and unapologetic truth about who really pays the consequences for yesterday’s accelerated desegregation and today’s racial naïveté.

Learning Matters producer Jessica Windt, who had worked with Mr. Lee on the film, catches up with the film director for a “shape up” and to talk about the impact the film has been making.

NOTE: This podcast was originally released in January 2013.
