Phenomena Shaping the Future: Education – Harlem’s Children’s Zone
With a GDP of over $21 trillion, the United States is one of the richest nations on earth. Yet, more that 13 million children in the United States live in poverty, and are ultimately unprepared and unable to thrive. Anne Williams-Isom, mother to three incredible children, is the CEO of Harlem Children’s Zone, an organization rooted in Central Harlem going back to the 1970s. Harlem Children’s Zone has saved and continues to save generations of children and helps them reclaim their future.
