Miss Virginia Screening:
An Evening with
Virginia Walden Ford
A Screening of Miss Virginia and a School Choice Discussion with the woman on whose life the movie was based. On behalf of National School Choice Week, please join us for a special screening of Miss Virginia. Hailed as a "must-see" movie by USA Today, the film follows a struggling inner-city mother who sacrifices everything to give her son a good education. Unwilling to allow him to stay in a dangerous school, she launches a movement that could save his future—and that of thousands like him.
After the movie, meet and talk with legendary school choice advocate Virginia Walden Ford (the real-life Miss Virginia!), who will join us in Newark for this special event. She will also sign copies of her new book, School Choice: A Legacy to Keep.
This is a free event and an RSVP is required.
Miss Virginia is rated PG-13: Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
