“Elementary Genocide: The School To Prison Pipeline” exposes the socially engineered mechanism created by our government that utilizes the public school system to label elementary aged African-American males as work for hire targets within the U.S. penal system. Many refuse to believe there is a corporate attack on the minds and productivity of Black youth through intercepting their educational, economical and social development which results in statistically funneling them through the revolving doors of the criminal justice system. This documentary confirms this theory and seeks to educate parents, teachers and families so that we can reclaim our young men and ensure the future of our community.
“Elementary Genocide” shatters the silence and directly challenges the notion that the Public Education system is not in dire need of repair. The Award Winning documentary was also mentioned by the Obama Administration during a press release honoring the ‘Champion of Change’ honoree Tracey Syphax.
Since the release of “Elementary Genocide”, more than 100 pieces of legislation have been introduced into the U.S. Congress, with another major legislation that is still pending. This particular legislation seeks to change the ‘Zero Tolerance’ laws that disproportionately affect African-American male students who are three times more likely to be suspended for the same offense as their white counterparts.
Featuring: Dr. Umar Johnson, Dr. Boyce Watkins, Killer Mike, Tracey D. Syphax and More...
Executive Producer: Rahiem Shabazz
Elementary Genocide 2: The Board of Education vs The Board of Incarceration
Rahiem Shabazz continues the conscience-raising dialogue generated by his acclaimed documentary Elementary Genocide: The School To Prison Pipeline with his equally hard-hitting Elementary Genocide 2: The Board of Education vs The Board of Incarceration.
Featuring interviews with noted educator and Black psychologist Dr. Umar Johnson, Chief Juvenile Court Judge Steven C. Teske, fearless former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, former political prisoner and Black Liberation Army co-founder Dhoruba bin Wahad, popular social commentator Dr. Boyce Watkins, award-winning education reformer Dr. Steve Perry, White House champion of Change Winner & Author Tracey D. Syphax, Sister ZaZa Ali and more, The Board of Education vs The Board of Incarceration uncovers the true purpose of today’s educational system and how it’s failing the African child. Going beyond the school-to-prison pipeline headlines and conspiracy theories, The Board of Education Vs. The Board of Incarceration proves that something sinister is afloat by digging deep to explore its origin, its existence and how to plot its destruction to save every Black child.
