Durham student talks recession on Nickelodeon this Sunday

Reposting this from features editor Adrienne Johnson Martin and our TV blog:

 

The recession has hit lots of folks hard, and among the hardest, are children.

Kids, after all, are one of the most ecomonically disadvantaged groups; more than 13 million are poor by the official poverty standard, and nearly 30 million live in low-income families, according to the National Center for Children in Poverty.

You can imagine, too, how scary it is for a child to see a parent lose a job, and struggle. It can cause feelings of instability and even anger.

Which is why it's so great that there's journalist Linda Ellerbee. On Sunday night at 8, Ellerbee and Nick News present "$tressed Out! The Economic Crisis and You," a show in which young people talk about how they and their families have been affected by the nation's economic
woes.

Durham's Darius Evans (that's him, next to the girl in red) is among the kids talking. He's an 8th grader at Shepard Magnet Middle School, who says he likes science and wants to be a song producer.
