Dr. Geoffrey Canada told this story the other morning in Longview, to a crowd gathered in the Belcher Center at LeTourneau University for the Poverty Conference. An acclaimed documentary called “Waiting for Superman” was produced a few years back, featuring his work creating the Harlem Children’s Zone. Canada was raised in the South Bronx of New York City, a tough neighborhood. He and his team have worked cleaning up and taking back 97 blocks of Harlem and serving thousands of kids over the past 30 years.
