Lecture Series: The Race to Nowhere

Vicki Abeles

Join us on August 1st for a special evening on the topic of Education. Vicki Abeles, an ex-Wall Street lawyer and mother of three, turned filmmaker in 2007 to tackle critical social, political and educational issues that are often ignored by the mass media. She founded Reel Link Films and produced her first feature documentary, Race to Nowhere, which hit a nerve with its vivid portrayal of today’s education system, focusing on the students who struggle to navigate the harried, pressure-cooker culture that is today’s America. Since its premiere at the Mill Valley Film Festival, tens of thousands of people have seen the film at screenings across the country and overseas.  The screenings are usually followed by town hall discussions about grassroots changes in education.
