Flintown Kids is a 2005 documentary film created by filmmaker Omar McGee that explores life in the town of Flint, Michigan, where over half of the residents are African-American. Flint is well-known for producing star basketball players, and was once a prospering town thanks to the local GM plant. When the GM plant closed down however, unemployment soared and poverty followed. This film explores the scarcely functional educational system in Flint, geared only to produce basketball players and leaving other students out of luck. For those young people who do not possess sports talent, Flint offers options other than gangs. The film also looks at the cocaine making business that Flint has become famous for, and the horrific violence that occurs on the streets of the city every day. With appearances by NBA stars Morris Peterson, Tracy McGrady, Glen Rice, and others, all of whom are from Flint. This story explores the gritty streets of Flint, Michigan, where basketball stars are made, and where those left behind live in a world of poverty, violence, and crime.moreless
