Speaking at the Deltas’ EMBODI youth summit

Ashley Allen and Christine Pendleton from the Delta Sigma Theta sorority reached out the 100BMC to speak on panel about mentoring for their Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence (E.M.B.O.D.I.) session. The panel also included two High School males, Two College males, and Randy Ryder from Keeping it Real Law Project, and Steve Bell from the First Strike Program. Ashley served as moderator during a lively discussion beginning with Rap music’s influence on culture, behavior, and a teenager’s sense of “normal”. The conversation moved onto dating, drugs, violence, school, and mentoring. A special thanks to Dana London and all the ladies who hosted the event.
