Our girls club programming continues with a special edition on February 11th at 4:30 PM EST on the acclaimed film, Critical Thinking. The film, which released on September 2020, is based on the true story of the 1998 National High School Championship team, Miami Jackson. The event will feature lead actor, comedian and producer John Leguizamo. Executive Producer Carla Berkowitz and former US Junior and High School Champion FM Marcel Martinez will also appear. Marcel was board one for Miami-Jackson in 1998, and was memorably depicted by Jeffry Batista in the film.
