Elementary Genocide: The School to Prison Pipeline (18)

Genre: Documentary
Duration: 66 minutes

Trailer: youtu.be/rgMvXoj_LXY

Elementary Genocide is a documentary executive produced by award winning journalist/filmmaker Rahiem Shabazz. Elementary Genocide: From Primary to Penitentiary" exposes the socially engineered mechanism created by our government and utilizing the public school system to label elementary aged African American males as work for hire targets within the US penal system. Many refuse to believe there is a corporate attack on the minds and productivity of Black youth through intercepting their educational, economical and social development, and resulting in statistically funnelling them through the revolving doors of the criminal justice system. Elementary Genocide confirms this theory and seeks to educate parents, teachers and families, so that we can reclaim our young men and ensure the future of our community.


Elementary Genocide consists of candid interviews and voice-over narration culled from original interviews from professors, teachers, best selling authors, children, parents, celebrities, etc. A few notable appearances are made by Dr. Umar Abdullah Johnson, Dr. Boyce Watkins, Supreme Understanding, Dr. Torrence Stephens, Tracey Syphax, Killer Mike,Kadidra Stewart, Edward M. Garnes Jr., Okorie Johnson Sistah Iminah etc.

There will be a discussion after the screening
