TEACHED: A Series of Short Films 

TEACHED is an award-winning series of short films that candidly examine systemic racism in the United States with a particular focus on the experiences of African American boys.


The five TEACHED films—The Path to Prison, The Blame Game, Unchartered Territory, Code Oakland and Think of Calvin—have won fourteen international film festival awards and screened at the U.S. Department of Education, SXSW Edu, The Atlantic Race & Justice Summit, Museum of the Moving Image, the Salesforce Foundation and a wide variety of universities, businesses, government offices, faith-based institutions and non-profit organizations.



The TEACHED films provide powerful conversation starters around issues of education and race. We encourage you to organize watch parties of the films using our FREE RESOURCES:
