  • Critical Race Studies Class Video

    Please take a few minutes to see what Lincoln’s Critical Race Studies students have been working on this year. Kudos to Lincoln teacher and Equity Specialist Ms. Mallare-Best for empowering students to stand and facilitate courageous conversations around race and the role of whiteness in a predominantly white state, city and school. We want to particularly thank LHS parent Chris Crever, owner of Cine Rent West Film Company, for his incredible support that resulted in the making of the video at the link below. Cine Rent West Stage Manager and Film Maker Bryden McNew adeptly captured the commitment and passion of our students and teacher. We also want to thank all of the family members, teachers, district leaders, and students who came to the Race Talks to participate in our student led Socratic Seminar Exhibition Night. Please enjoy the short film at the link below and please contact Cine Rent West at the contact information pasted below if your club, team, or program is interested in hiring their staff to make a short or longer documentary celebrating LHS student involvement. We’d love to post several on our website to share with the community. Cine Rent West’s work is incredible.
