James Poniewozik, the New York Times' TV critic, recently shared his list of the best TV shows of 2018. 

Mingled in with the second season of Donald Glover's (aka Childish Gambino's) Atlanta and Netflix's Bojack Horseman is … Ta Da … America to Me. 

The nod is just the latest round of critical praise for the 10-part docuseries that drills down into Oak Park and River Forest High School's complex racial challenges.

Poniewozik writes of the series, directed by longtime Oak Parker Steve James, that it "was an involving, big-hearted story of kids, their dreams, their challenges, their triumphs and their everyday drama. You don't have to watch 'America to Me.' But you'll be glad if you do."
