Set against the stunning photographs of a talented young photographer from the projects, "Our America" evokes the unforgiving world of these two amazing young men, and their struggle to survive unrelenting tragedy. With a gift for clear-eyed journalism, they tell their own stories and others, including that of the death of Eric Morse, a five-year-old who was dropped to his death from the fourteenth floor of an Ida B. Wells apartment building by two other little boys.

Sometimes funny, often painful, but always charged with their dream of "Our America, " LeAlan Jones and Lloyd Newman reach out to grab your attention and break your heart.
