US University Tour

This April I went on a University tour with My America to the US to show the film at a number of American Colleges.  During these 3 and a half week visit, I attended 11 Universities across America. 

 

1. University of Southern California, Los Angeles - 26 March

2. Chapman University, Orange County California - 27 March

3. University of New Orleans, New Orleans - 29 March

4. Rollins College, Orlando - 2 April

5. American University, Washington - 4 April

6. Lander University, Greenwood, South Carolina - 8 April

7. Wake Forest University, North Carolina - 9 April

8. University of Wisconsin – 10 April

9. Columbia University, Chicago - 11 April

10. University of Las Vegas (LAVN) - 12 April

11. Stanford University – San Francisco - 16 April

Showing the film was very inspiring and energising and also very exhausting. It was wonderful to see how young people in the US could relate to the film and the issues we were exploring in My America. I have made many friends who are keen to help spread the news about the film in the US. I will endeavour to upload some responses people had to the film.
