“Hoop Dreams” director Steve James returns to Chicagoland for “America to Me,” a 10-part series that tags along with several teenagers at the massive Oak Park/River Forest High School as they struggle to maintain their grades and racial pride. The two goals often come in conflict, which explains why several school administrators opposed granting James access to students. His persistence pays off; this is one of summer’s most engaging docu-series.
