  2. In the once thriving city of Detroit, residents now struggle to find fresh produce. The Catherine Ferguson Academy for Young Women in Detroit is one of only three schools in the U.S. that educates pregnant teens and young mothers about the importance of nutrition and helps them develop skills making them independent and able to support their families. Though students initially dislike the agricultural work included in the charter school’s curriculum, their attitudes change when crops begin to bear fruit, and they see their hard work has transform into profitable food sales. Mascha and Manfred Poppenk, the creators of the award-winning documentary, “Grown in Detroit,” and a panel of U-M faculty will discuss, and show clips from, their award winning film – “Grown in Detroit ” about the amazing work done at the Catherine Ferguson Academy. The film has won dozens of awards since its debut in 2010.

At a time when 31 states have passed “English Only” laws, four pioneering families put their children in public schools where, from the first day of kindergarten, their teachers speak mostly in a foreign language. Speaking in Tongues follows four diverse kids on a journey to become bilingual. This charming story will challenge you to rethink the skills that Americans need to succeed in the 21st century.
