A Lovely Day is a feature documentary about a group of Oakland High School students who overcome obstacles to put on an original hip-hop show. A class screening of the film may supplement a Media Arts, Ethnic Studies, or Social Studies lesson. Taught in conjunction with this guide, A Lovely Day will challenge students to think critically about the pressures of growing up in urban America, and will facilitate further research and exploration of the relationship between personal experience and creative expression.
