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. In this final episode of America to me, we witness the resilience of the students and teachers of OPRFHS in their quest to find agency, racial identity validation, and community. Their stories demonstrate that individual steps towards equity are important, but it takes everyone working together to create long-lasting, systemic change. No one can opt out.
