June 9, 2011 – Lincoln Center – ImageNation led another sold out film even at the Walter Reade theatre last night. The film was Prep School Negro – a documentary about the director’s struggle in attending one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, having hailed from a lower income neighborhood in Philly.
Director Andre Robert Lee was on hand and introduced the film and led a panel discussion

1. Realizing you weren’t the only one to ever struggle with identity – black, white, or otherwise
