Black Schools Matter, especially Afro-centric schools that serve under-privileged black communities. The Barbara A. Sizemore Academy (BASA) is an Afro-centric charter in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago that CPS (the Chicago Public School District) targeted for closure in November 2015. Little did they know that a small group of 7th and 8th grade filmmakers and their teacher were not going to stand for it.
