Who Says TV Can’t Make A Difference?

Filed under: Stuff I Like, The Wire — petertypingfaster @ 12:48 pm

This is just cool. Actress Sonya Sohn of The Wire has started a non-profit that uses episodes of The Wire to help “…some of [Baltimore]’s most troubled teenagers to turn their own lives around and away from drugs and crime.”

“That’s the thing about ‘The Wire.’ If you’ve been on ‘The Wire’ you have street cred and so that street cred is currency. So why not use that currency for the betterment of other folks.”

That’s just incredibly cool, and huge props to Sohn for doing what she can to make a difference.
