Promises is a participatory video installation that explores black male achievement gap in education through the personal stories of two young men coming of age documented methodically for thirteen years by two Brooklyn based film makers Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson (this feature length documentary, American Promise was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and released in 2013.) The goal is to increase awareness of the complex issues that contribute to the achievement gap in education and compel viewers to take action in their own families, schools and communities. iPad is used as a portable touchscreen interface device so that the installation can happen easily anywhere without special equipment.
