J.V. Martin Junior High School
It all began with a documentary named the Corridor of Shame; followed by then presidential candidate Barack Obama's visit to a school along the Corridor, JV Martin Junior High School; Ty'Sheoma Bethea's letter to the White House and the subsequent invitation as the president's special guest at his first State of the Union.
After all this national attention, a furniture company in Chicago, Sagus International, decided something should be done for these children. They donated over $250,000 worth of new furniture to the school and The Big Picture takes viewers behind the scenes for a special glimpse into how this all transpired
