No “J” is the story of basketball sensation Darnell Whiteaker. Darnell's dreams of becoming a professional basketball player are crushed when he injures his knee. Now Darnell must deal with the prospect of being an injured basketball player with marginal credentials who must face the harsh and uncompromising job market. This video will provide a safe context for talking about the reality young dropouts will face . . . a lifetime of unskilled wage labour or even no job at all. The narration focuses in on the characters in the video rather than real life. This protects the vulnerable position of those directly experiencing this problem. The video concludes with advice from professional basketball players and coaches urging young people to stay in school. Study Guide.
