YouTube: Film Threat and A Tiny Ripple of Hope

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope…” Robert F. Kennedy The documentary A Tiny Ripple of Hope, follows Jahmal Cole as he wages a war of love, altruism, and compassion, through a myriad of neighborhoods in his hometown of Chicago. Filmmaker Jason Polevoi carries viewers deftly through intimate moments in Jahmal’s life, as he goes about his daily ritual of helping others, while simultaneously, unable to stop his own life from unraveling. Jahmal’s commitment to his organization: My Block, My Hood, My City, refreshingly embodies the adage of walking the walk and talking the talk
