WXXI Showcases “Creating Hope” Video

May 3, 2018. Rochester is a city with its share of challenges. However, a new film project is highlighting Rochester’s resilience… for good reason. On tonight’s edition of Need to Know, produced and hosted by Hélène Biandudi Hofer, Hélène interviewed four of those involved in the new video’s work to renew hope in the lives of some city residents who need it most. Please attend the Premiere of “Creating Hope – Beyond The Front Row” next Thursday, May 10 at 7 pm at the School of the Arts Auditorium, 45 Prince Street, Rochester, NY. Free copies of DVD will be available.

Also on the show, what started as a book expo has launched into a movement. What’s being done to encourage literacy, writing and a deeper study of African American literature in Rochester classrooms.
