1 WE BEAT THE STREET The Hero’s Journey By: The Three Doctors: Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck HuntProject By: Kris Canty
2 Call to ActionRameck, George and Sampson goes to the Seton Hall University presentation and learns about the Pre-Medical/Pre- Dental Plus program.This is the college that the three doctors go to for the program.
3 DepartureAt first Rameck and Sampson were doubtful and uninterested in the program because they didn’t want to do a seven-week summer course to study at the college level, and it seemed too hard for them.The doctor’s Mentors were their Mothers and teachers, who told them not to go out doing drugs, crime, or anything negative. They trusted in them and believed they can make them proud.
4 Threshold CrossingRameck, George, and Sampson must over come the crime, drugs and negativity in their neighborhood and focus on going to college and medical school to become successful doctors.
5 InitiationThe three doctors learned from their parents and teachers to not give into peer pressure with their friends by doing drugs or crime.They also learned that they need to get an education to become successful in this world.This helps them get accepted to the Seton Hall University so they can start their career.
6 The Road of TrialsHad to overcome Peer Pressure from friends who wanted them to do crime/drugs. Pg. 77 “Sampson hesitated even the smoke was making him feel dizzy. ‘Naw, man that ain’t me,’ he declared. Samson wasn’t tempted to do drugs the way many of his friends were.” This is important because this shows how the doctors didn’t give in to drugs.Going to the college program was a trial, no one in their neighborhood has gone to college, so Rameck, George, and Sampson decided to go and not be like everyone else.Losing friends by way of drugs, or crime was another trial George, Rameck, and Sampson had to face in their neighborhood and their friend’s deaths could have easily been theirs. Pg.58 “But Sampson just stood there in disbelief. The driver of the car was Razor Sizemore. Razor, who had stopped coming to Reggie’s kung fu classes because he had become a runner for the drug dealers; Razor who sat right next to Sampson in Miss Bellingham’s math class just two days before. Razor, who died that crispy, cool morning while running from the police in a car that he had stolen, had just turned twelve years old.”
7 The Supreme OrdealSampson, George and Rameck decide to take advantage of the Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental program and make a pact where they will go to Seton Hall University to study so they can become doctors.Pg. 98 “’Man we can go to college for FREE!’ George said, trying to convince them. ‘Free is always good ,’ Rameck Said with a grin. ‘What do we have to lose? Let’s just do the applications and see what happens,’ George suggested. ‘Yeah man-why not?’ Sampson told the others. ‘Let’s go for it.’ Rameck added, ‘Can’t hurt anything. Who knows-this might turn out to be a good thing.’” This quote shows how the pact got started.This shows how Sampson, Rameck, and George stuck together, and helped each other out to become what they are today.
8 Threshold CrossingRameck, George and Sampson must leave behind old friends and habits because it was just keeping the down and getting them in trouble.Pg. 115 “The boys he’d been arrested with had also been incarcerated, but for some reason, not at the location where Sampson was held. He didn’t know where they were, and he didn’t care. They had ratted him out and left him to suffer the consequences alone. Sampson resolved that if he ever got out, he’d stay away from dudes like that, but he knew it would be difficult.”This quote shows why the three doctors left behind their old friends from their neighborhood, because they would get in trouble.
9 ReturnAfter Rameck, Sampson, and George graduate from Medical school and earn the title to be called a Doctor, the share their story with people in the world by writing books and tell people how they should get their education, and avoid things that are wrong. The three doctors get noticed by a lot of people because of that.
