Program Description

Event Details

In celebration of National Literacy Month in September, join us for a documentary Film Screening and Community Discussion "The Right to Read"

Produced by Levar Burton, this recent film tells stories of a courageous Oakland NAACP activist, a teacher, and two American families who fight to provide our youngest generation with the most foundational indicator of life-long success: the ability to read.

Following the screening a discussion led by Jose Cruz from the San Diego Council on Literacy. Also joining will be Edwina Williams from Project LIKE (Literacy is Knowledge Empowerment), a nonprofit that connects students to nonprofits and community agencies in the larger Northern San Diego County where they can volunteer, intern or do work study. 

This program is created in partnership with MiraCosta Service Learning and San Diego Council on Literacy. 

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
