[WATCH] “You Are Not Alone” Documentary

“I wish I could have just told him ‘I love you Tyrone.'”

When Joakim Noah founded Noah’s Arc Foundation he had one mission in mind: Help Youth Develop Their Full Self.

It comes as no¬†surprise to learn Noah Arc’s Foundation helped Interrupters’ director, Alex¬†Kotlowitz, produce this mini-documentary for Youtube titled “You Are Not Alone.”

Interweaving the stories of youth who have lost friends or family to gun violence with his fellow Bulls’ teammates Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson, this nine minute presentation chronicles life after death. Gun violence became a hot button issue for Joakim after the surge in homicides in urban youth caused by gun violence. Amidst statistics and reports downplaying the issue, Joakim remains upbeat and optimistic about the healing process. After learning about the death of young boy on the same court he played basketball, Noah committed to providing self-discovery opportunities to at-risk youth through arts and sports programming.
