RUNNING TIME: 1:15:00 

Class of COVID-19 explores the challenges facing educators, students, and families during the coronavirus pandemic in the United States. Issues such as the inequities in school resources, student activism during the pandemic, and struggles with mental health come to light. This thought-provoking film introduces us to Nicole, a teacher battling severe health challenges who continued to teach from her hospital bed, and Stephen, a high school history teacher helping students navigate the complex issues of racial and social justice.    The film also follows three Black, female-identifying high school students who take on leadership roles in the Black Lives Matter movement.
