"The Children of Central City," a multi-part series that launched June 13 on NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, provides an in-depth look at how exposure to violence impacts the health of children, as told by the members of the A.L. Davis Park Panthers youth football team.
The film takes you from the playing field to the classrooms, the homes of the players and the offices of the social workers whose attempts to treat the children's post-traumatic stress are repeatedly thwarted by state budget cuts to mental healthcare.
