LET THE LITTLE LIGHT SHINE (2022)
Rated G 
86 Min

Illinois Public Media and the Champaign Park District are proud to welcome LET THE LITTLE LIGHT SHINE director/producer KEVIN SHAW to the Virginia for this special Arthouse Experience Film Series screening, to include a Q&A session after the movie with Mr. Shaw and other distinguished guests.

In the documentary LET THE LITTLE LIGHT SHINE, 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 threat of closure by way of transformation into a high school that caters to the neighborhood’s newer, wealthier residents.

Bringing to life the famous Margaret Mead quote—"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”—the film’s story is a blueprint for community organizing as it follows everyday parents-turned organizers alongside NTA students and staff as they advocate to keep their school, a community safe-haven, intact.
