THUNDERSOUL Screening at 2011 RA--Arts Teachers Sought to Speak After Screening

We are at the beginning of a terrific partnership with Anita Merina, NEA Read Across America,  the producers of this film and its director, producers and Jamie Foxx.  NEA Fine Arts Caucus Members, NEA Members and guests have been invited to the films first screen at the NEA RA on June 30, 2011 in Room S101AB on the Convention Center.

We are looking for FAC members/arts teachers/advocates to speak about the importance of arts education after each of the screenings.


The first screening is at 10 a.m. (the film is actually about 97 minutes).  The second screening is at 3:20 p.m. and their will be Q&A immediately after the screening. We are looking for Fine Arts Caucus members willing to talk about the importance of arts education (and of course music) to students’ lives.  Director Mark Landesman will be there as well as Kimber Smith, the outreach coordinator, who’ll be staffing the Thundersoul Booth in NEA Expo.

If you would like to help with the Q&A, please contact Anita Merina even over the weekend or early next week at

There will be more opportunities to work with them and look at screenings in other parts of the country in the fall.
