Our Students get a first look at documentary before it airs on PBS…

The students of St. Lucie Christian had a very special guest for their First Chapel event on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018.  Documentary writer and director, Derek Boyd Hankerson, stopped by to preview the film he executive-produced, before it gets to air on National Television, including PBS.  After viewing the 30-minute long documentary, SLC students are being challenged to write movie reviews for it! This documentary is about a collection of cycling trails to include Rails to Trails, and SEA Island Loop, which are two (2) bicycle trails that are in the interior of Florida, as well as the East Coast Greenway Trails, which are a collection of trails that extend from Key West Florida, all the way up to Maine, to the border of Canada. The film also highlights the American Heritage focusing on the contributions of African Americans to the great state of Florida. The film also points out that Florida has existed for 500 years and Florida and the new world, were settled by 3 groups of people: Spanish, Native Americans and Africans. Mr. Hankerson also points out that the many contributions made to this great nation by these groups of people are not reflected in our history books, and he has spent 30 – 40 years making a huge investment on education so minority children can learn about their heritage, which will instill in them a sense of honor, pride and self-esteem, which is lacking, because they don’t see themselves in the history textbooks.
