The documentary presents a better understanding of the challenges that stand in the road to achievement. Not just the road to becoming an MD but in a broader context involving the pursuit of anything where role models are absent and systemic issues are barriers to "success". Many of us have rarely if ever even had to think about the absence of examples---because we had them. The documentary also did a wonderful job of establishing a common ground and how similar we are as people.--as parents who dream of having their children "do better".
The documentary was very informative and I definitely learned some new things!
Thank you for this!! Hopefully will be shown across all elementary/middle/high schools (and available to public), powerful!
This was very powerful! It is a very important movement. I was brought to tears when Trip was asking how to deal with people not liking him for the color of his skin. I have talked to co-workers about how their children have those same problems with fellow students and they are only in grade school. So heart breaking. I hope the future can change with this movement.
Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to participate and learn more about the reality of barriers which exist for young black men who have an interest in medicine. The call for action is now. Thank you for bringing this to light. This documentary is well done and efforts must continue and grow. This will be shared.
