June 2002
Week of June 14th thru June 21st


Each One Teach One has become the mantra for African-American adults that are interested in helping our young people fulfill their dreams. The blackfilm.com crew is dedicated to creating vehicles for film professionals to achieve their goals and we feel the same way about our youth. During the months of December 2001, January and February 2002, we worked in conjunction with high school English teacher and Chicago native, Margretta Browne in creating our first ever High School Editorial Staff. The students were given the freedom to create their own Editorial Sections and had complete freedom in writing the articles from their perspective. Each month, we will feature their work for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
