Atlanta(WAOK/V103)- Hundreds turned out Tuesday night to Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church in Decatur for the continuing Let Us Make Man,WAOK and V103 series, in reclaiming the black family and black manhood. Tuesday night’s discussion and workshop focused on the top consequences of thug life. Attorney Mawuli Mel Davis of Davis Bozeman Law Firm and WAOK’s Derrick Boazman led the workshop and engaged attendees on what every parent and child needs to know to avoid an unproductive life of criminal traps . The workshop featuring V103’s Greg Street delved into gang activity, rap music, peer pressure, rebellion, drug use, and how parents can guide children who may be headed down the wrong direction. Davis used popular music from artist such the late Tupac Shakur to explain how thug life leads to death and jail. Davis told attendees “Our children are running, and they are tired of running. This is an opportunity to help them.” The workshop was the third workshop and discussion in the Let Us Make Man series in reclaiming the black family.
