KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Residents from Kalamazoo packed Chenery Auditorium last evening to hear the Three Doctors.
They were just kids off the mean streets of Newark, New Jersey when they met at a magnet school, bonded together and willed themselves to hit the books and begin medical careers.
Dr. George Jenkins who teaches dentistry at Columbia University says it all depends on what you define as cool.
The usual peer pressure they had to deal with was that books and learning were lame and uncool, but they didn’t pay any attention to that and who is cool now.
Jenkins, along with Dr. Sampson Davis and Dr. Rameck Hunt, have written best sellers, been on national TV, met the President and created a foundation.
All that in addition to their lucrative careers.
The program could not have been more relevant to the Kalamazoo audience, as the community copes with an outbreak of youth involved shootings and violence.
It concluded several days of social change projects organized by Jeter’s Leaders in Kalamazoo, who donated 23-hundred books to Kalamazoo Schools as part of last night’s program.
