About

**FREE ADMISSION**

The University of San Diego will host a screening of the film, Freedom Writers: Stories From an Undeclared War, showcasing a group of students from Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach, California and their teacher Erin Gruwell, presented by Ms. G herself (as her students affectionately called her), along with some of the original Freedom Writers. The film uncovers the events that led to the creation of the Freedom Writers Diary, a diary containing student journal entries detailing the hardships and struggles of living amongst racism and poverty, the story of which was later turned into a major Hollywood film starring Hillary Swank, 10 years ago in 2007. Following the Los Angeles Riots, Gruwell and the students of Room 203 transformed themselves and their community, and Erin went on to found the Freedom Writers Foundation to support her students and pay homage to the name of the 1960s civil rights group Freedom Riders. Today, the Foundation carries their message of education and personal and social transformation, and multicultural humanistic education, across the world.
