Event Description:

University Programs Digital Entertainment Committee will screen “Freedom Writers” (PG-13) Tuesday, February 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the University Programs Video Theater, located on the fourth floor of the Arkansas Union.

 

Based on the true story of Erin Gruwell, a dedicated teacher (Hilary Swank) in a racially divided Los Angeles school receives a class of at-risk teenagers the system deems incapable of learning. Instead of giving up, she inspires her students to take an interest in their education and planning their futures. She assigns reading material that the youths can relate to and encourages them to keep journals of their daily lives.

 

This event is sponsored by University Programs through the Office of Student Activities and supported by the Student Activities Fee. For questions or for accommodations due to disability please contact the Office of Student Activities, osa@uark.edu or call 479-575-5255. University Programs is a program in the Division of Student Affairs.
