President Obama's pick to head the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans knows that all children can succeed if we expect them to. In this interview with Loudspeaker Films' Kelly Amis, we see David Johns in action, passionately addressing students from pre-K to high school as well as an audience of teachers ready to help transform education in America. We also learn how a young boy growing up in "The Jungles" of Inglewood, California ended up leading this national initiative at the U.S. Department of Education.
