Cleveland Teens Fresh Camp remind us about lead poisoning with ‘Forgotten Homes’ video.

“Forgotten Homes” was composed and written by five area teens who are interns with Fresh Camp, an initiative that amplifies youth voices. The song was made after the interns — Cris Huff, Mecca Primm, Charles Spooney, Derrick Washington and Maurice Philpott Jr. — researched lead poisoning in Cleveland and the historical and racial factors that have allowed it to harm the futures of thousands of children in Cleveland. The song is one from a soon-to-be released CD titled “Drop the Lead” that explored the connections between two problems — gun violence and lead poisoning.

Rachel Dissell from the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote about the lead poisoning crisis and this video project.
