Thank you for posting this.
And let's thank Harvard and Quincy Jones.

Please take a look at one heroic American's efforts in Birmingham, Alabama. After watching the documentary film "Tocar y Luchar" last year, Jeane Goforth cashed in her life savings of $37,500 and started an EL SISTEMA-inspired program. In mid-February 2008, there was one child learning music in a donated space. Today, she has to turn away so many desirous children, mostly African-American.
Please check out her website and let's find ways to support and help her:

In New York City, an all-volunteer very informal group hopes to bring the unique and most innovative elements of EL SISTEMA to ALL CHILDREN in the NYC public schools; please take a look at a PETITION: http://elsistema-nyc.org/

Thanks again.
