Back in 2005 we introduced you to a group of young men from inner-city Baltimore who spent a year studying in Kenya as part of a small education program called the Baraka School.
The idea was to get the boys away from the crime and drugs in their neighborhood. Their experiences were featured in a documentary called “The Boys of Baraka.”
The group was supposed to stay in Kenya for four years, but after just one year, the program was canceled due to security concerns.
When the film came out, we spoke with Devon Brown, who was in 10th grade and was back in school in Baltimore.
