This film captures students from Pono school in Harlem, their concerns about the 2016 election results and their ensuing political journey. 

Filmmakers Jamal Joseph and Mike DeCaro follow the children, 

ages 7 to 11, as they study constitutional law, engage in activism, 

and get involved in New York City's Harlem community. 

The subjects of We the Children ultimately challenge the general perception of children's limited role in politics and encourage viewers to consider children's political voice

UNFORGETTABLE MOTHERS OF THE MOVEMENT…TRIBUTE IN WORD & SONG

IDA B WELLS, ELLA BAKER, ROSA PARKS, MIRIAM MAKEBA, WINNIE MANDELA, FANNIE LOU HAMER, QUEEN MOTHER MOORE, BETTY SHABAZZ, CORETTA SCOTT KING, AND MYRLIE EVERS …

They stood side by side with the men whose voices defined the movement and

marched on when those voices were silenced.

Standing up and speaking out when they were expected to be silent,

they were willing to stand alone when others were too afraid to stand with them.

These powerful women were there from the beginning and every step of the way

We are here because they were there…on this day and everyday …we honor them.
