Comment for Mr. Bergman's Class on The Boys of Baraka
I believe that this movie helps bring to view the real struggles that young African American boys go through when they are growing up in hard neighborhoods like Baltimore. Most of them thought that there was nothing that they could do to make their lives better then what they were at that moment. Most of the boys, and their parents, thought that the boys would not even make it to their high school graduation. The Baraka School helped these boys realize that there is more to them then boys who will drop out and end up in prison. The Baraka School showed the boys how to work together and make something of themselves. When it was stopped all the boys knew that in order to make their lives the best they would have to talk what they learned from the school and apply it to their original public schools. Some of the boys didn't get to live out their dreams of becoming more then just a statistic and they ended up doing poorly in school and only living the easiest why they could. But boys like Devon and Montrey used what they learned from their one year at the Baraka School and made their lives the best by doing well in school and becoming the first people in their families to make something of themselves. The movie takes the viewer and shows them the lives of these boys by touching the heart and showing you exactly how the boys live. It is an excellent movie and should be watched by everyone.
