Following 3:00 PM matinée:
“Curing Inner City Violence” with Iesha Sekou, CEO/Founder of Street Corner Resources
Street Corner Resources was born out of a concern over gun violence and gang activity among Harlem’s youth. In 2005, Iesha Sekou, a long standing community activist, decided to start a non-profit that would engage youth, provide resources to help them develop their God-given talents and be a bulwark against the ongoing trend towards violence in inner-city neighborhoods.
Since its inception, Street Corner Resources has lived up to its name by providing multiple resources to community youth. SCR’s activities have included workshops, such as “Rekindling the Inner Spirit to Succeed,” a weekly radio broadcast (Street Corner Resources LIVE), a very active street presence (“Occupy The Corners”), the installation of the I AM PEACE Music Studio at a Harlem High School.
Street Corner Resources’ most recent initiative is the “Cure Violence” program in Central Harlem. “Cure Violence” is a national program designed to eliminate gun violence in inner city neighborhoods.Buy tickets/get more info now
