In conjunction with the visit of award-winning journalist Jeff Biggers, join The City Library for a screening of the film Precious Knowledge by Ari Palos (English with Spanish Subtitles).

Precious Knowledge reports from the frontlines of one of the most contentious battles in public education in recent memory, the fight over Mexican-American studies programs in Arizona public schools. The film interweaves the stories of several students enrolled in the Mexican-American Studies Program at Tucson High School with interviews with teachers, parents, school officials, and the lawmakers who wish to outlaw the classes. (75 min.)
