American High School Repeat

Watch the whole series here on BBC iPlayer

Our award-winning series about a majority African-American High School in South Carolina will enjoy a repeated run on BBC One, beginning at 23.15 on Monday 20th August.

Re-titled for this run as Segregated America: A School in the South, it’s a chance for viewers to once again see the series that follows a charismatic principal and his students, including star football players, Ivy League hopefuls, male cheerleaders and young mothers as they prepare for the next step in life.

The series reveals life through the eyes of young African-Americans, from Homecoming to graduation; from dates at the diner to senior Prom, and captures life-changing moments on the journey to adulthood. This is a High School as you’ve never seen it before, and a unique insight into how it really feels to be young and black in America as the clouds of Trump’s presidency gather overhead.
