This week our guest was Curtis Acosta who joined us in anticipation of the Western Massachusetts debut of the new documentary PRECIOUS KNOWLEDGE, in which his work as an educator is featured. The documentary highlights disenfranchised high school seniors who become academic warriors and community leadersin Tucson’s (Arizona) embattled Ethnic Studies classes while state lawmakers attempt to eliminate the program. Directed by Ari Palos. Precious Knowledge is a co-production of Dos Vatos Productions, the Independent Television Service (ITVS) and Arizona Public Media. 70 minutes.
