Every Child NC and Narrative Arts Present All Together, a documentary series

Narrative Arts and Every Child North Carolina have produced the All Together documentary series focused on education equity.  The series will be streamed online, is free and will include a Q&A after each screening.

Every Child NC’s has been leading a multiyear campaign for education equity in North Carolina.  They have created a strong statewide coalition that they want to support and grow.  Part of the goal of the All Together documentary series is to keep their coalition members involved and find new supporters.   The series goal is to engage participants in an active dialogue, while keeping their community mobilized.

Over the past five months Narrative Arts’ Land and People producers have traveled the state interviewing students, faith leaders, educators and advocates as part of creating All Together. 

Working with Every Child North Carolina coalition members we developed the concept for the four films, identified folks to interview and created a community engagement strategy.

Filmed in six counties across the state, the goal of the series is to uplift the work of education advocates and build public support for funding the Leandro Plan.  The series which broadcasts every Monday from August 8-29th provides viewers with an inside look into the fight for Leandro and education equity in North Carolina.

How you can get involved:

The Untold Story of the North Carolina Constitution
Monday, August 8, 2022 at 7:00 PM  | RSVP for Free Tickets

In 1868, a multiracial coalition of North Carolina legislators wrote into our state’s constitution that all citizens have the right to an education – a radical notion at its time.The story of the coalition is largely untold. North Carolina is the only state which outlines public education as a right for all citizens in its constitution. We have never as a state delivered on the promise those representatives made in the constitution. But, the value that all citizens have a right to an education is ours, North Carolinians. And it is ours because of that brave moment in history.

What can North Carolina faith leaders tell us about education equity? What does faith call us to do in the fight for education rights for everyone?  In this short documentary we travel across the state to discuss with faith leaders how education equity is part of our collective justice. We explore how faith impacts both the messages we hear and how we understand them as North Carolina communities work to build an inclusive state.

What’s Possible: Winston Salem Localizes Leandro
