Green Party Senate candidate LeAlan M. Jones became famous at age 13 when a documentary he helped produce called Ghetto-life 101 gained acclaim. 

The documentary detailed Jones and his friend Lloyd Newman upbringing on the South Side of Chicago, and landed him a junior correspondent gig with the BBC. The boys recorded their routine for 10 days to let listeners play witness the poverty and danger they regularly faced. The documentary won dozens of national awards and became one of the most acclaimed pieces of audio-work in the history of Public-Radio.

Jones is currently a contributing writer to the BBC World Services. He is the legal guardian for his two teen nephews and a football linebacker coach at Simeon High School.
