Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that a group of African American teenagers have created a tele-play called A Second Chance, which will air on the Boston Neighborhood Network. Jones notes that the teenagers spent the summer rehearsing, writing and recording the video, with encouragement from counselors from the Dorchester Counseling Center. Jones reports that the 30-minute video takes a stand against drugs and violence. Jones' report includes footage from an interview with Maxine Rawlins (Dorchester Counseling Center). Rawlins says that parents, teachers, and peer counselors can use the video in discussions about violence. Jones' report also includes interviews with teenagers involved in making the video. The teenagers talk about the video and their efforts to turn others away from violence. Tanachee Babbitt (student) talks about street violence and the death of her brother. Jones notes that the lives of many of these teenagers have been touched by violence. Jones' report includes footage from the video, footage of a teenager performing a rap song, and footage from the funeral of Kingsley Allen (brother of Babbitt). This tape contains additional footage of Babbitt and two teenage boys talking about their involvement in outreach efforts.
