 Only through independently educating myself on these topics and doing my own due diligence on what resources are out to implement change did it become so clear to me. I have to play a more active role in trying to create content that aims to educate and shine light on helping the youth in America perceiver through long standing challenges that don’t seem to be getting any better.

There are many issues that I am passionate about but helping our Black boys is certainly top of the list. My art will always reflect a sense of purpose no matter the genre.

  • In Chicago, 75 percent of all students arrested in public schools are Black.

  • What’s most troubling is that not all of the Black boys taken from their schools in handcuffs are violent, or even criminals. Increasingly, school-assigned law enforcement officers are leading these students from their schools hallways for minor offenses, including class disruption, tardiness and even non-violent arguments with other students.

Extensive Data Shows Punishing Reach of Racism for Black Boys Black boys raised in America, even in the wealthiest families and living in some of the most well-to-do neighborhoods, still earn less in adulthood than white boys with similar backgrounds, according to a sweeping new study that traced the lives of millions of children.
