Former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is vowing to make dozens of appearances around the country to urge low-income youths to avoid any involvement with dogfighting.
Today, he visited a suburban Atlanta community center. But it was largely off limits to the largely black neighborhood it was supposed to be helping.
In an agreement between Vick's handlers and the Humane Society of the United States, only 55 people and one media crew were allowed inside. An Associated Press reporter, videographer and photographer were among the media banished from the property by police.
The quarterback is apparently planning to do his first major interview since completing a 23-month prison sentence with the CBS news magazine "60 Minutes." CBS sent a three-person crew to film the event.
The windows were covered to prevent anyone from looking inside and police forced all other media to stand on a sidewalk.
