America to me focuses on a year at Chicagoland's Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRFHS), widely considered to be a safe, well-integrated, academically strong school. Chanti and Caroline experience fatigue as women of color, as does teacher Jessica Stovall as she continues to engage the administration in piloting an equity program that benefits all faculty and students. Students of color and white students continue to spiral from emotional and physical fatigue as they navigate their experience at OPRFHS.
