Screening of "Precious Knowledge"


This documentary film interweaves the stories of students and teachers in the Mexican American Studies Program at Tucson High School. The filmmakers spent an entire year in the classroom filming this innovative social justice curriculum, documenting the transformative impact on students who become engaged, informed, and active in their communities. Precious Knowledge provides an insider's perspective to a historic battle over civil rights as the student leaders in Tucson High fight to save their classes.


This film screening is being held in the Campus Center Auditorium on February 27, and is open to all faculty, staff, and students. The event is sponsored by the Department of Communication and CMASS. If you would like additional information please email
