Monika Hardy exploreed the juxtaposition of Hour of Code with Dasani, when she wrote in an email:

I think the stories of Leo http://redefineschool.com/leo-grand/ and Marc http://redefineschool.com/marc-roth/ fit in nicely as well.

Freire's - how to have liberation without trust.. esp the story behind Leo and Patrick: Did we trust a homeless black man could code? Did we trust a young white tech entrepreneur wasn't just wanting to look good in his offer?
