We continue our celebration of Black History Month with our Alive & Free students sharing their knowledge of ancient history. We have Urban Heat in the studio with step team coaches sharing their joys of teaching young people the art of stepping and focusing on their education.
Alive and Free Street Soldiers Radio continues to teach you about Black History Month as we talk with our community. Douglass Fort joins us on air he discusses his honest and powerful family history which dealt with the damaging effects of crack cocaine in East Palo Alto, CA.
"My grandmother came to California in 1954 to escape the racism of the South not knowing that the “Crack Epidemic” would be more damaging to her and her offspring than the overt racism she fled. My grandmother is now 87 years and can look upon five generations of children. As I write, I have to try not to cry as I look at the damage on what the drugging of my community has done to my family and to myself."
We call this the BC (Before Crack) and AC (After Crack) epidemic. Get ready to think and discuss and share with us your thoughts on social media.
