In December of 2011, eight student-athletes from the Boston Public Schools were selected to participate in a basketball tournament in Beijing, China. The trip, chaperoned by our Director of Teen Initiatives, Phil Jackson, was part of President Obama’s 100,000 Strong Initiative.
Kevin Bernardez, who studies TV Production at Madison Park High School, created this documentary about his experience on the trip. With his camera in hand from the airplane, to the basketball court, to the Great Wall of China, Bernardez allows us a glimpse into the excitement of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Check out our blog to see some incredible photos from the trip and read Phil’s reflections.
