sexual assault

Earlene McMichael | WMUK

When Chris Harris-Wimsatt was a boy, his local Boys Club in Raleigh, N.C., was more than a place to have fun. "It was not only a place that saved my life, but gave me life," he tells WMUK's Earlene McMichael today in a very personal interview on the WestSouthwest public-affairs show. Starting around 5 years old, he often had to scrounge up his own food because he was left home alone for weeks at a time, he recalls. By age 11, he wanted to die. Now Harris-Wimsatt says he is paying forward the caring support that his club leaders gave him as the new head of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo
