Beyond Emancipation, in association with Z Davies Films and Alan Kimara Dixon, presents We Got Next.  This one-of-a kind event is an opportunity for the community to get to know and support foster youth.  The evening will include a film screening of Different Stories, a youth panel, and a reception with appetizers.

About the Film – Different Stories
Different Stories is a series of short films about former foster youth who have navigated the foster care system and how they turned their struggles into strengths and successes.  The youth featured – Chris West, Drake McCarthy and Ruth Price – offer unique perspectives on what helped them on their journeys, and how Beyond Emancipation played a pivotal role in their lives.  View a sneak peek!

Different Stories is a follow up to Enter a Challenger Exit a Champion, a documentary film about Zimbabwe Davies and his own journey through the foster care system written and produced by Davies and directed by Alan Kimara Dixon.

Thank you to everyone who attended We Got Next! It was an inspiring night full of wisdom, strength and the power of the young people and the community that supports them.
