Event Details

Join the Oaks Academy as it hosts the public premiere of The Glories of Our Journey: A Community Story. This documentary tells the story of John Hope School No. 26, which for many decades was an important part of Indianapolis’s Martindale Brightwood neighborhood, and the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library, a branch of the Indianapolis Public Library housed within the school. Bound together by a spirit of love and resilience, both the school and library served a flourishing neighborhood and demonstrated community at its best.

After the showing, stay forĀ a discussion with local leaders on the transcendent role of schools and libraries as anchors in our city.
