“The Infamous Future,” a new documentary that focuses on the inspiring educators and exceptional students of the Eagle Academy For Young Men schools in New York City.
It’s a welcome glimpse into an educational model, sense of community spirit and support system that invests in young Black and brown men. And, is helping to mold them into responsible leaders with strong character and a record of academic excellence.
Told through the eyes of teachers, students and alumni of Eagle Academy schools, it’s a moving story of how a mission to empower, uplift and support these young men has resulted in great success, and is defying the often-negative narratives conveyed about young Black and brown men in America.
