Raising Bertie (Episode #3008H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 28, 2017 -- 10:00 PM

This powerful verite film weaves the young men's narratives together as they work to define their identities and grow into adulthood while navigating complex relationships, institutional racism, violence, poverty, and educational inequity.
