The Virginia Theatre is screening Let the Little Light Shine as part of the Arthouse Experience film series on February 18th. Director and producer Kevin Shaw will be in attendance, and will be in conversation with a panel after the screening. 

Let the Little Light Shine (2022) is a documentary that showcases “a small but mighty group of parents, students, and educators mobilize to fight for The National Teachers Academy (NTA), a top-ranked Black elementary school facing the threat of closure by way of transformation into a high school that caters to the neighborhood’s newer, wealthier residents.” 

The film is presented by Illinois Public Media. Get your tickets online.
