Don't call them crack kids / produced by M. Nicole O'Shea.

Program Title:
Don't call them crack kids / produced by M. Nicole O'Shea.
PRA Archive #: 
SZ0640
Description: 

Documentary which examines the stereotypes of "crack kids," who are thought of as wild, unteachable children who will require an enormous tax burden to educate. The sensationalistic terminology does not describe the causes of their problems, and masks maternal abuse of other drugs which contribute to their condition. The program examines media attention on drug addiction of minority women, how alcohol and not crack is responsible for many developmental problems, and an interview with the mother of two adopted prenatally drug-exposed children who live in Westchester County.|DON'T CALL THEM CRACK KIDS / produced by M.
