I was honored to emcee the free screening of the documentary Bully at Thalian Hall. It was hosted by the station, Screen Gems Studios and the Wilmington Police Department. School officials were also on hand to help answer questions.
First of all, bullying goes beyond schools. Police believe they see bullying in gang culture. They say if they curb bullying, they could curb violence.
The audience LOVED the doc. You could hear people react to some of the stuff that was going on in the documentary, and a lot of parents and kids stayed around to listen to school leaders.
You can now watch "Bully" on Redbox and Netflix.
We also worked with New Hanover County school leaders and the Wilmington Police Department to do a LIVE Google Plus hangout to discuss what's really happening in our schools. We edited it down so that you can watch it here:
