Description

Excerpt from the short A Harlem Mother.

In 1998, 18 year old LaTraun Parker made a documentary about the difficulties of growing up in Harlem. Eights years later he was shot dead on the street. Today his mother Jean Corbett-Parker fights youth gun violence and helps other parents survive the pain through her organization, Harlem Mothers. Weaving footage from LaTraun’s own film with scenes from Jean’s new life today, A Harlem Mother is a short documentary that tells this tragic and inspirational story from the dual perspectives of mother and son.
