THE HILLSIDE CHRONICLES - TABLE READING

Synopsis: To be or not to be, What does it cost to be educated in America? The Hill Side Chronicles follows the everyday lives of five black students looking to achieve higher education at one of the most prestigious schools in the country. All they have to do is stay low and not draw too much attention to themselves. Easier said than done!

What does it mean to be equal in a world that was never designed for people that look like you to read?
