Preach and Almitra discuss current events from molly as the new roofie to The Monsonto Protection Act as the flea that rode in on the dog. Also featuring special call-in guest, Chris Rolle, founder of Together Apart, that enlightens us on what black men think about getting married.
Preach sets us off with a quote from Hugo Chavez, Rest In Power, then chats it up with the youth in-studio guests: Supa and Kush from Brooklyn, talking about their webseries called Street Voices a politically empowering series geared toward the black community. Have we failed our youth? Should the youth call out their elders? Jay-Z has aged out of appearing on Kendrick Lamar remixes and should be doing nightclubs, let the youth tell it!
Preach and special in-studio guest host Kahlil Kahn, hailing from Staten Island by way of St. Louis, go in on the lack of compassion for what is happening to our black and brown youth, with some dope Hip-Hop to back them up. Time to take care of our communities in a real way!!! OTH loves the babies! Rest In Power Kimani Gray…
Almitra and special guest co-host Jacssel Carter talk about issues affecting our young women: teenage pregnancy and suicide. Joining them are Tasha Davis representing for OTH Indianapolis and Akua Soadwa, founder of GNEP. Shout out to Ladies Under Construction, Sista-2-Sista Youth Summit, and Gratuity Included for their contributions to the girls in our communities.
