The Helen Bader Institute (HBI) for Nonprofit Management at UWM presents the second screening its annual 2nd Annual HBI Summer Film Series, looking into all aspects of the world’s social sector and our place in this ever evolving landscape.
From Executive Producer Russell Simmons and Director Jason Zeldes, comes an award-winning documentary following Donté Clark, a young poet transcending the violence in his hometown by writing about his experiences. Growing up in Richmond, CA, a city haunted by a fatal turf war, Donté and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the hope of starting a dialogue about violence in the city.
