The Harlem Children’s Zone Presents:

The Photovoice Project

More than disease or genetic disorder, firearms rob young African Americans of their lives. In the spring of 2010, seven students at the Harlem Children’s Zone and eight adult community members took a stand against this crisis. The group photographed their community, documenting causes of gun violence and solutions to the epidemic. The members of this inter-generational group met to discuss their work and to craft concrete steps for action. This documentary follows the participants as they take photographs of their community, discuss the meaning of their work, and present their photographs to elected officials in Albany.

The screening will serve as a platform for future action against gun violence in Harlem, as the group’s concrete steps for action will be presented. A photo exhibit will accompany the screening.
