Your Story: A Horse in the Projects

Aretha Crout was only 14 years old when she saved enough money to buy a horse. The catch was that she didn’t have her parents' permission and she lived in the Northern Long Beach projects. Aretha tells Dick Gordon how she used a tense moment with her new pet to help other children from the projects change their behavior.
