Bright Road, a 1953 low-budget film, is the first feature film appearance by Harry Belafonte, who co-stars as the principal of a school. Featuring a nearly all-black cast, the film stars Dorothy Dandridge as an idealistic first-year elementary school teacher trying to reach out to a problem student, and ultimately succeeds. It is in the spirit of this film showcasing the positive results that come from investing in our at-risk-youth, that we have adopted the “Bright Road” moniker.
