Harlem Children's Zone For President!

Barack_obama_071708 Earlier this week in his speech before the NAACP in Cincinnati, Obama spoke about the Harlem Children's Zone:

"And that's why I'll build on the success of the Harlem Children's Zone in New York and launch an all-hands-on-deck effort to end poverty in this country - because that's how we'll put the dream that Dr. King and Roy Wilkins fought for within reach for the next generation of children."

This is the bigger, broader effort that has been profiled in the Times Magazine and is the subject of Paul Tough's forthcoming book, Whatever It Takes.
