Emergency Radio Town Hall Meeting on Hip Hop and Violence 6/27

There has been a lot of discussion over the connection between Hip Hop and youth violence but how much is fact and how much is fiction? This issue is especially critical during a time when cities and states are passing laws aimed at the so called "Hip Hop" generation.

On Friday June 27th at 8PM, Shairi's Radio Show will host an emergency town hall meeting to discuss this burning issue on WXDU 88.7FM titled "Don't Believe the Hype!"

The two hour program will feature activists, ministers, Hip Hop artists and local citizens. The regular host of Shairi's Radio Show is Monica Daye but the radio town hall meeting will also be cohosted by TRUTH Minista Paul Scott of the Messianic Afrikan Nation.

The purpose of the forum is to allow people to voice their concerns and offer solutions to the problem of youth violence as well as dispel the myth that Hip Hop is synonymous with gang culture.
