This video focuses on sharing the stories of individuals who have overcome significant barriers to achieve success. These stories will be shared with the Los Angeles community, with a special focus on students, to inspire them to surmount societal obstacles and spark an engaged dialogue about current and future impediments to educational and career achievement and success. It is our hope that hearing and seeing these stories come alive will inspire individuals to overcome whatever barriers they face in order to make a difference in society.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit
