Gift from filmmaker. I believe I acquired many of Charlene's films when I wrote an evaluation letter for her. I also knew her from Philly when I was making "The Watermelon Woman." She acted in some of the photos for the Fae Richards Archive.

Abstract

Almost 150 children in the Washington, DC, public-school system most of whom had never seen a play before-work together to produce and perform the Broadway junior version of Into the Woods, written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. The film shows us what an empowering journey this is for all the students involved-how it makes them feel special, useful, intelligent and driven. (AFI)
