Pas de résumé français disponible

"In 2016, Stanford graduate Michael Tubbs became the youngest and first African-American mayor of Stockton, California. With a long history of economic turmoil, crime, violence, and low literacy rates, Stockton was ripe for urban renewal projects. No one knew this better than Stockton native Tubbs. He allowed filmmaker Marc Levin to film the behind-the-scenes struggles of his first term as he and his team worked tirelessly to affect change through a universal basic income experiment and a Stockton Scholars program geared towards helping at-risk youths complete higher education.
Director Levin catches the city of Stockton at an urgent turning point and allows the locals to speak for themselves as they react to the real changes that are beginning to take place in their community. Stockton On My Mind also offers a fascinating portrait of Tubbs, who, as revealed through interviews with his family (which includes his incarcerated father), could easily have ended up dead or in prison had it not been for his remarkable drive and determination."
