Game Changers- 1Hood

Now, I knew that my brothers +jasiri X and +Paradise Gray were in Pittsburgh NationBuilding, but to see the video shines a long needed light on the work that they have been doing. These brothers have moved the concept of hood media to another level. By setting up an academy that arms young people with media and the skills to control their images, they have empowered a generation of thinkers that will definitely have a say in the direction are communities go in.
I only hope other youth groups embrace the model and begin to use media to build the images that they want to see rather than be victims to the images that are being produced for them and the world to see. Media is the new front lines and I salute 1Hood for building our Special Forces.
