Student Film for Education Equality Day in Washington, D.C.
"Say It Loud is a youth film that explores the importance of education for African-American boys. When Jordan Coleman was 10-years-old he became a voice over actor on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. show The Backyardigans; he's the voice of Tyrone the moose. Jordan's parents challenged him to use some of his earnings to make a positive contribution to his community ... he hired a film crew and began interviewing African-American boys and men for his Say It Loud film."
Check out this 13-year old's blog. He has important things to say to our youth. He will be traveling the country this summer sharing his film and his insight with teens and their parents.
