Baltimore and Africa (Clip 1 of 5)

In the first clip associated with The Boys of Baraka lesson plan, we see a glimpse of inner-city Baltimore. Police sirens ring out, a man is arrested and kids mime gun shots as they play together. In Baltimore, 76% of African-American boys do not graduate from high school. Students should watch the whole film and talk about what Africa-American boys who grow up in Baltimore might be facing in their futures.
