Children and Human Rights  2

Charlayne Hunter-Gault reports as we learn about children in poverty from Harlem to Appalachia. First, we meet an African American male, Victor, who tells his story about how he saw his cousin, Mark, get shot and killed. We meet Jeffrey, an African American man that started a center to help take poor/troublesome kids off the streets as he tries to teach them the differences between right and wrong and helps the kids realize that they can become somebody. We look at some of the kids who have become better people with the help of Jeffrey's community center and we meet some of Jeffrey's life-long friends, who took care of him when he was growing up. We meet Dee Davis, Director of "Appal Shop," a non-profit media center in Kentucky. Charles, who was a young troublesome teenager, tells his story about how he was saved by "Appal Shop's" drama program. We also meet Jeff Hawkins, a drama teacher, who explains the importance of theatre and the benefit of the "Appal Shop" center. Then Kate Raisz sits down with Marian Wright Edelman, president and founder of the Children's Defense Fund, and advocate of children's rights and programs, as they discuss the issues between the government and children's rights. Overall we are shown strong proof that poor and troublesome kids can change and help make a difference in the world as people provide the right programs to make these things possible. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
