“Medora’s Been in the Gutter”

In this clip from the Independent Lens documentary Medora, we watch Chaz Cowles, one of the students featured in the film, bike around his economically devastated town and tell us about how hard-hit Medora has been in recent years. "Other schools don't expect nothing from us," he says. "Medora's been in the gutter."

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
