Bangin' In Little Rock, Nearly 10 Years Later

That's about the time HBO rolled into town - something city leaders wished had never happened but folks such as Nawojczyk and Rev. Hezekiah Stewart, executive director of Little Rock's Watershed Project, say was a godsend.
...
Stewart is reaching out to the community as much as he can, but he has big dreams for what could be done, such as a Summer Olympics for kids who have nothing but time on their hands. "It would be a place where they could come and get involved in athletics. That's the kind of thing that has to happen here," he said.

If a parent isn't around to take the lead, people like Jackson and Stewart are ready to step up to the plate.
"Once a child makes the decision to be a better person, the support has to be there," Stewart said. "Someone has to keep checking back with them until their [good] behavior becomes habit-forming. Through his ministry, the Watershed Project, Stewart and his staff support some of the city's poorest with any need they have, from food and clothing to counseling services for children.
While others were building prevention programs back when gangs were spiraling out of control, Stewart was focusing on intervention. "We were doing the hard stuff. We were on the streets, counseling kids, going to court with them, visiting them in prison."
Stewart was known for putting families in the "hot seat.
...
Stewart says he is alarmed because the conditions that produced the gang activity of the early '90s haven't gone away.
"The lack of jobs, the bad relations with parents, the apathy, the drug culture. It's all still here," he said. "Selling drugs to bring home money to your family and joining gangs is their way of surviving."
Stewart agrees that the HBO documentary didn't portray all of what Little Rock offers, but he is adamant that the film truly showed what was happening to many of the kids he sees every day.
"The impact of that documentary has helped people all over the world. Little Rock can benefit too if the city comes to terms with what really happened," he said.
