TROUBLE in the WATER
- Inspired by the Langston Hughes poem, My People -
Cool Breeze Communications is pleased to announce that “TROUBLE in the WATER” is now available for purchase.
Based on an award-winning screenplay, “TROUBLE in the WATER” is a short, family-oriented film that brings an important and positive message to the African-American community. By exploring how negative racial messages are gradually internalized and passed from generation to generation, the film illuminates the profound impact of these messages on a child’s self-image.
A child’s primary identity comes from the parent. It’s only at ages 3, 4 and 5 that kids even begin to think about color… Too often, [we] unknowingly translate negative messages to [our] children.
Dr. Alvin Poussaint - author, psychiatrist and educator
This thought-provoking, inspirational DVD also serves as a youth outreach media tool that supports educators, early childhood development professionals, and counselors in their work to help youth counter the culture of bigotry, harassment and hate violence.
A MUST HAVE for anyone who wants to help youth transcend racial negativity!
Educational & Institutional Copies NOW AVAILABLE!
Comes with Public Performance Rights so Libraries, Universities, Public and Private Schools, Churches, and Community Centers can screen the DVD for their students, congregations, and patrons.
Thank you for bringing this program to our church. The DVD format made it easier to facilitate our discussions on this critical issue. Without a doubt, we must take notice of how what we say shapes lives in ways we can’t imagine.
