See how three teenage boys--all friends-- overcame the odds and worked hard to all become doctors at a lecture tonight (Feb. 12) at Philander Smith College, as part of the Clinton School of Public Service Lecture Series.
The "Three Doctors"-- Dr. Sampson Davis, Dr. Rameck Hunt and Dr. George Jenkins-- grew up on the tough inner-city streets of Newark, N.J. As teens, they each made a pact that they would stick together, go to college, graduate and become doctors.
After accomplishing their goal, they have all gone on to write books and start the Three Doctors Foundation to share their stories and inspire others to overcome life’s challenges. Together, they have written three books about their lives, “The Pact” for adults, “We Beat the Streets" for children and “The Bond” about fatherhood.

The lecture will start at 7 p.m. in the M.L. Harris Auditorium at Philander Smith College, 900 Daisy Bates Dr., Little Rock.
Admission is free. There is no RVSP to attend the lecture.
