Houston Community Leaders and Rapper on Speaking Tour in area schools


Sensing that there is going to be a hard upcoming summer in the city of Houston, several community leaders embarked upon a high school tour to warn, guide and inspire students. The list of speakers included Nation of Islam Student Minister Robert Muhammad, Reginald Gordon of OG1 Operation Outreach, rapper K-Rino, and discussion moderator Durce Muhammad. I had an opportunity to visit Jesse H. Jones High School and Jack Yates High School with them on May 12. Each speaker covered topics such as violence, true education, drugs, conflict resolution, male/female relationships, the prison system, the exploitation of music artists, the unemployment rate, what's ahead for the summer and more!
