About the Event
Two decades later Dr. Victor Rios - by then a 36-year-old tenured UC professor, author, and national thought leader on the school-to-prison pipeline - gets a call.
It’s Martín Flores, Rios’ high school mentor: “I know you’re busy, but I need you to come down to Watts this summer and work with my kids. We get them on the right path now, or we lose them to the system."
Woven with archival material stretching back 25 years to Oakland native Rios’ own troubled adolescence, THE PUSHOUTS examines questions of race, class, power, and the American dream at a particularly urgent time.
