I See Me: A Film Seminar for Black Teen Boys

I See Me: A Film Seminar for Black Teen Boys spotlights high-quality films about the Black male experience. This weeklong seminar invites African American boys ages 13-17 to bring their own experiences and points of view to discussions and activities following each day’s film. Film selections TBA.

Students will meet at the Belcourt Mon-Fri, Jun 17-21, 10am-2pm to watch films and discuss with their peers. Refreshments and lunch are included.

The seminar is FREE but students must apply to be selected. Questions? Contact Allison Inman at or 615-846-3150, extension 20.

I See Me is a co-presentation of the Belcourt Theatre’s Education and Engagement program and Vanderbilt University’s Scholar Identity Model Community Outreach Initiative.

Note: I See Me will feature films designed to spark conversation about important issues. Because of that, some films contain adult situations, profanity, drug/alcohol use, brief nudity, sexual situations, and violence.


Applications are due Mon, Jun 10. Participants will be notified Tue, Jun 11.

I See Me is facilitated by Gilman Whiting, associate chair and professor of African American and Diaspora Studies at Vanderbilt University and director of Vanderbilt’s Scholar Identity Institute; with support from the Belcourt’s education and engagement staff.
