NEW YORK (WABC) -- On this episode of Here and Now, we are taking a look at breast cancer in Black women and how a collaborative program is disrupting the norm to get more women of color into more potentially life-saving clinical trials.
We will also take a look at a program inspiring students to finish school. The "I Will Graduate" program is using arts-in-education to change lives.
Also, the sky is the limit for students at PS 5 in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, where they are celebrating the launch of a state-of-the-art flight studio.
The Dr. Ronald E. McNair Aviation Center, sponsored by American Airlines, offers elementary school students flight hours on a simulated and actual plane -- and perhaps puts them on the road to an aviation career.
The principal of PS 5, Lena Scarborough Gates, and her son, Jamie D. Gates, a senior analyst for American Airlines are sharing more about the program.
Finally, the Audience Development Committee Inc., also known as Audelco, is celebrating its 50th anniversary and celebrating excellence in Black theater is its mission.
Rome Neal, the recipient of this year's lifetime achievement award, and actor/director Tico Wells, who is receiving the outstanding achievement award with other cast members from "The Five Heartbeats" join "Here and Now" to discuss further.
