Film screening and Q&A with Dr. Victor Rios and Kadhir Rajagopal ED. D

“I was in prison before I was even born.” So begins the story of Victor Rios - a high school dropout, gang member, and three time felon by 15. But when a teacher’s quiet persistence, a mentor’s moral conviction, and his best friend’s murder converge, Rios’ path takes an unlikely turn. Two decades later Rios is a 36 year-old tenured UC professor, author and national thought leader on the school-to-prison pipeline. THE PUSHOUTS examines crucial questions of race, class, power, and the American dream at a particularly urgent time.
