Doesn't make me miss home.
Newark is a rough place. I'm glad I'm gone. This is just a reminder of why I left.
Diamond in the rough?
Gritty documentary that highlights the struggles of former gang bangers who are trying to lead others out of that dead end life. In parallel, this series follows a young, talented, and dedicated mayor who has a greater vision for the city. He's trying to get the people to believe in themselves and affect change in their environment. Will he succeed or be driven out by the many people who don't want change?
There's lots of raw emotion, tribulation, triumph, injustice, struggle, and REALITY in this snippet of urban life in Newark.
It's quite a contrast to the quaint, upper middle class town where I live. I watch - and am hopeful - every week that the people will rise up, work together, and make their city great. Jayda, Creep, and Mayor Booker can't do it by themselves.
