Watch This. ‘The Prep School Negro’ Tackles Code-switching and Assimilation.

The Prep School Negro

Though I was only a prep school negro for one school calendar year, my senior year of high school, the film directed by Andre Robert Lee still resonated. Being a young black girl that came from humble beginnings the issues of assimilation and code-switching were especially relevant. In the film, Lee sets out on a journey to make sense of his experiences while attending one of the most elite private schools in the country. While doing so Lee discovers much more about familial love as he reflects back on the past.
