A critically acclaimed documentary about a highly innovative eastside teacher anchors the Journey to Juneteenth Film Festival at 6 p.m. on June 8 at the A. Quinn Jones Museum and Cultural Center.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Boaz Dvir, “Class of Her Own” tells the story of Duval Elementary teacher Gloria Jean Merriex’s transformation into a trailblazer who rewrote the curriculum to meet her students where they were and used hip hop, dance, and call-and-response to teach reading and math.
