André Robert Lee leads business development and partnerships for Point Made Learning and produces and directs for Point Made Films and his production company, Many Things Management. He wrote, directed and produced The Prep School Negro, a film documenting his personal journey as a high school scholarship student, exploring what he gained intellectually but lost emotionally when he left the streets of Philadelphia each day for his elite private school. Since 2009, he has taken The Prep School Negro to several hundred independent high schools, colleges, and conferences to lead discussions about how institutions can move beyond diversity initiatives and create a sense of belonging for underrepresented students. Since 2014, he has continued this work with the documentary film he produced, I’m Not Racist… Am I?, traveling around the U.S. facilitating screenings and workshops. André also directed the Colorlines Cycles of Inequity video series and serves on various film and education boards.
