A new exhibit on the Boston Common highlights the journeys of local young people who left their former gangs behind, as well as a host of political and civic leaders from across the city describing their own stories of overcoming difficulties in life. "Boston Uncornered" is a series of 26 larger-than-life, black-and-white portraits by photographer John Huet in partnership with the program of the same name by College Bound Dorchester, which helps young adults leave gangs and get a college degree.

Jim Braude was joined by photographer John Huet, Boston Uncornered student Paul Burns, and Boston Uncornered college readiness advisor Luis Rodrigues.
