When does racial inequality begin? To answer the question, you could go
back centuries. Or, as the empathetic, eye-opening documentary series
“America to Me” does, you could go back to school.

The filmmaker Steve James, who followed two African-American high school
basketball players in “Hoop Dreams,”
a year with students, teachers and parents at Oak Park and River Forest
(O.P.R.F.) High School in suburban Chicago. In this integrated, progressive
school he finds a community of white and black students whose education is
not separate, but whose experience is not equal.
