Freedom Writers: Stories from an Undeclared War is a feature-length documentary about CSULB alumna Erin Gruwell and her students, the Freedom Writers. Rising from the ashes of the L.A. Riots, the Freedom Writers story has become iconic for racial tolerance. This documentary follows Erin and her students from the riot-torn streets of Long Beach to the present day. Containing archival footage and intimate accounts from the students of Woodrow Wilson High School's Room 203, Stories from an Undeclared War shows an alternative side to this great American story;  the odyssey of 150 teenagers who leave the mean streets to become published authors, civil rights activists, and modern-day icons of racial tolerance. Erin and a few of the Freedom Writers will conduct a Q&A following the screening.
