In other words we the community are the village and thus we are held responsible for reaching back to help guide and set a positive example for these young people to see and follow. It is our duty no one else’s, being we come from these same neighborhoods as they. South-side is where I’m from and it makes me proud to be able join with others from my community whom I either grew up with, went to school with or just plain working in collaboration with others not from my neighborhood but recognize the need for such an event. If you have love in your heart for your community and wish to spread an abundance of positive vibrations on this day as an example, no matter what side of town or community you are from we want you there to serve as a walking talking example to inspire hope for our youth.

Our original date was August 9 2014 but due to rain predictions in the forecast I decided to cancel for that weekend which most saw that original first date that appeared on our flyer. I pushed it back to the end of the month not even realizing at the time that August the 30th landed on Labor Day Weekend. Destiny maybe? But that has yet to be determined although I'm a eternal optimist. Thanks to all the men and women who signed on you all are truly "Those Who Care". So we invite all to come out as we celebrate life, brotherhood, fellowship, sisterhood in unison. An example not just for the children but for all..

Update Follow Up:
I'm so happy to report that outside of a few early setup snafu's the 1st Annual South East Anderson Community Awareness Block Bash went off without a hitch & was highly successful. This Saturday was a hot sweltering day with overcast skies but many people still journeyed out with there children in tow to be apart of something magically organic. All the kids and even the adults acknowledge to me personally that they were very pleased with the effort that was put forth. If judging by the smiles on the childern's faces and the laughter from the adults I'd say our mission was accomplished. DJ Smash held down the Technic 1200 Turntables with the sharpness of a surgeon putting the needles in the groove of the records simultaneously as if making rhythmic incisions. Real dj-ing displaying its true art form of days past in its pristine prime to the amazement of the little ones who were to young to know about that era.
I played the classic role of emcee on the mic most of the evening keeping the audience thoroughly entertained joined at times by the microphone fiend himself Dj Master D. Bro Kaf-Re of the Original Egiptian Masonic Order of Freemasonry donned his African cultural head dress called a "Fez" for all to see an example of how we as African-americans should be proud of our roots and heritage. He setup up a tent and had much african culture literature to give out free and even made himself available to answer questions from any and all. This was a unique day for a unique cause indeed hence the word awareness in our campaign. The APD (Anderson Police Department) didn't even have to show up to police this event even tho they were contacted & aware of our function. As an old Ice Cube hit record goes and brings to mind "Today Was A Good Day''!!
We wound the event down with an open mic & I asked the elders to speak some inspirational words of wisdom to the youth in order to plant some positive seeds in there minds that they could leave with. Many rose to the occasion without hesitation & some others that I didn't even expect. To sum it up with one word it was purely "Phenomenal!!!" Here's some pics and I cant wait for the next one, we're on to something big here. Each one teach one & comment below if you would like. Always Peace, Love, and Harmony the helping hand we seek is at the end of our own arm. 9x's Dj Tuc da A.N.D. Representa
