Marcus Jones reports on efforts to provide positive male role models for young African American boys through the Paul Robeson Institute for Positive Self-Development. Jones notes that third and fourth grade boys attend the Institute every Saturday; he adds that 25 men from diverse backgrounds assist the boys in developing their understanding of math, science and history. Jones interviews Keith Motley (Paul Robeson Institute) about the program. Motley says that programs like this one can help to end the violence on the streets. Jones' report includes footage of students and teachers at the Paul Robeson Institute. Jones interviews two African American boys who attend the Institute. One boy talks about what he has learned at the Institute.
