Featuring the profoundly inspirational stories of ten high-profile professionals of color. As children, they experienced homelessness, hunger, poverty, neglect, and abuse. Made more hurtful by society’s cruel indifference toward kids like them. Many needed to work full time as child laborers to help their families survive.
Yet none of it stopped them. Today they’re engineers, doctors, medical professors, educators, authors, research scientists and leaders elected to the U.S. Congress and California State Assembly/Senate. What they’ve accomplished, in defiance of all odds and adversity, is a testament to the indomitable human spirit. Their example of turning poverty and hopelessness into personal and professional success reminds audiences of what is indeed possible for all children. Even those struggling with seemingly impossible hardships and consequently deemed as students with little or no promise.
