      EVENT DETAILS
      Freedom Writers Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion

      Chapman University is excited to host a screening of Freedom Writers: Stories From an Undeclared War, followed by a panel discussion with Erin Gruwell, Carl Cohn (Attallah Distinguished Alumni recipient), Sue Ellen Alpizar (Freedom Writer), and Daniele Struppa.

      Freedom Writers: Stories From an Undeclared War tells the story of Erin Gruwell and her 150-at risk students from Long Beach, California. In a community where the students were exposed to drugs and gang violence, Gruwell inspired her students to express themselves in a new way—through writing. The documentary follows their stories from their freshman year in 1994 to the present day.

      Following the screening and panel discussion will be an audience Q&A and Freedom Writers book signing. For more information on the speakers, a detailed schedule of events and parking information, please visit the official event page.
