When Robert Douglas was in my 9th and 11th grade classroom, and later living in my house when he was homeless his senior year on the way to a Incentive Awards full scholarship at the University of Maryland, I always told him he had an old soul. Now, he's made a movie called New Souls, a documentary about life in urban America. It comes on the heals of two books (Fertile Concrete and Fertile Concrete II), a career as an educator, and plenty of activism. The film is having its world premiere tonight at The Senator, before it makes its film festival circuit. I'll be there and you should be too.
