Jackson, Jr., Dean of the School of Social Policy and Practice, Richard Perry University Professor, and Penn Integrates Knowledge Professor; and Amitanshu Das, Senior Fellow and Director of GSE Films & SP2 Films, for an engaging program and discussion on community-based ethnographic films produced by students from Penn and West Philadelphia through the Center’s Academically Based Community Service courses.
