Robinson Tells At-Risk Students "It's About Choices"
Robinson met with three groups of (male) students in the school's C.A.R.E. mentorship program. "I came from the projects," Robinson told the kids. "In fact my address was 250 Project Drive," he said. "My dad was a heroin addict who left when I was four."
"I had that background," said Robinson. "Guess what? I had the opportunity to change it. It's about the choices you make."
Afterward one youth thanked him for coming, then suddenly hugged the startled youth role model.
