The year is 1958 and the schools are still segregated in Evanston.
The year is 1975 and a progressive laboratory school is about to leave the historically black neighborhood where it was a point of pride.
The year is 2020 and diversity is the word in everyone’s mouth.
 
Spanning over 60 years, Concerning Foster explores the lives of Evanston students during the desegregation of Evanston public schools. Created through historical research with Shorefront Legacy Center and interviews with former students at Foster School and King Lab, Concerning Foster is a moving meditation on the history, and future, of racial equity in our schools.
