What were you doing as a teenager during the summer? I bet you weren't making hard-hitting documentaries on serious topics like the teens at Community TV Network are for their CAN TV 19 show "Hard Cover." They have several movies as well several shorter videos on YouTube dealing with topics like rape culture, Hip Hop, media literacy, as well as the trailer for Trauma, their upcoming feature-length film about gun violence in Chicago. Who says journalism is dying?
