30 November 2011

Tha Movement University, United In Peace, along w/ Mark Allen, Rev. Gregory Seal Livingston, Judge Jesse Reyes, Judge Stanley Hill, and other Community, Religious, Social and Political Leaders will hold a Press Conference to promote Kanye West and Jay Z's song "Murder to Excellence".

The song promotes stopping youth/gang violence and should be rotated as often as possible on WGCI, B96, POWER 92 just as they rotate songs that promote sex and misogyny. Of course we know 'one song' isn't the end all be all to youth/gang violence in Chicago and or around the Nation; however, its a great start and conversation for those of us who work in the filed of public safety among at-risk youth/young adults.

Hope to see you at the Press Conference. Surprise guest will be in attendance. 

Jim Allen
