JANUARY 15, 2013, ATLANTA, GEORGIA — The Davis Bozeman Law Firm, in collaboration with the Auburn Avenue Research Library, hosts “The Consequences of Thug Life: To Be A Thug Or To Be Brave”, facilitated by Criminal Defense Attorney Mawuli Mel Davis on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 6:00 pm at the Auburn Avenue Research Library at 101 Auburn Avenue, NE in Atlanta, Georgia.
The “Consequences of Thug Life: To Be A Thug Or To Be Brave” presentation was developed after Attorney Davis witnessed the increase in youth that come from “good families” going to prison because they have bought into the glamorization of being a “thug”.
This multimedia presentation uses Hip-Hop music, images, and clips to engage youth in a thought-provoking discussion. This solution based workshop provides attendees a strong sense of self-identity, self-worth, and responsibility to the community. This dynamic and energetic workshop uses positive affirmations and creative teaching tools to inspire young people to be “brave enough” to be themselves. This discussion is a penetrating examination of what manhood has been “reduced to” in many communities of color.
