"All American Boys" is a timely, important, and evocative look at racism and police brutality, and how individual lives and whole communities can be affected when those issues collide. Told in alternating perspective between two boys, Rashad (an African American teenager who is assaulted by a white police officer) and his classmate Quinn (who witnesses it, and has ties to the police officer and his family), this story is reminiscent of too many current events, and is a gut-wrenching but crucial jumping off point for all of us to honestly and empathetically begin to tackle these issues head on.
