Last night before Chris Gardner’s class here at the Whitman School, he told me about a new movie on youth entrepreneurship. Then this morning, in a phone conversation with Phil McNeill of Virginia, he tells me the same thing. When two guys like this tell you to do something…well, I just have to pay attention.
Take a look at Ten9Eight Shoot for the Moon. It’s a wonderful story about inner city youths and a business plan competition. It’s being shown on Sunday (yes, before the Super Bowl, so it won’t interfere) on BET at noon. Take a look at the trailer, and then set the TIVO and make sure you record it. Or as the columnist Thomas Friedman put it: "Obama should arrange for this movie to be shown in every classroom in America. It is the most inspirational, heartwarming movie you will ever see."- Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times, January 23, 2010
