IveyPark Center Senior High graduate Ivey Robinson will be featured in tpt’s American Graduate documentary “Black Brilliance” which will premiere on Sunday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. on tptMN (Channel 2.2).

This 30-minute documentary highlights five Black high school seniors who share their journeys to graduation: what it takes, what it means, and defining success on their own terms. Ivey was an International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidate who now attends the University of Oklahoma majoring in computer engineering.

The goal of the documentary is to lift up youth voices so these important stories and messages can generate more collective efforts to impact the belief gap.
