Prison cells burned to the GROUND. Christ came to set US FREE - FREE INDEED. But we must DRINK FROM HIS CUP if we are to Stay free. 💜💜💜 There is still time to book me for your DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EVENTS for October or November.

Everyone make sure you always give back, not for the sake of receiving but for the sake of helping someone over come things. This project was truly rewarding working on, considering the fact that I used to work for Djj as a cook in the kitchen. Seeing all the young people come and go and then return, didn’t leave a good feeling in my heart. But seeing this center have a high success rate of juveniles not returning to crime, is truly magical. I hear that they will be building two more centers. Shout out to @javiermcintosh for allowing me to assist on the editing of this project! The mayor of Atlanta, the CEO of Coca Cola and a room full of hundreds of people gave it a standing ovation. Feels great working with like minded individuals! More to come, stay tuned!! #atlanta#departmentofjuvenilejustice#djjga#atpromisecenter#losangeles#recidivism#criminaljustice#mayorkeishalancebottoms#cocacola#cinematography#gsu#femaleeditor
Last night we celebrated Ambassador Andrew J. Young. Andy, as he is called my friends, is an American politician, diplomat, and activist. It was a great honor to pay tribute to a man that has done so many amazing things and continues to do great works.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms it was a pleasure, although not a resident of the great city of Atlanta, I support you and the work you are doing in Atlanta.
Smokey Robinson still has the voice and the moves. He put on an amazing show.
What a way to close out my birthday! Thankful for my Uncle and mentor who raised me. “We are all we got,” as he always says.

Freedom Parkway renamed to honor Congressman John Lewis
ATLANTA - The @CityofAtlantaGA held a ceremony to rename #FreedomParkway in honor of congressman and civil rights legend @RepJohnLewis.The street has been renamed to John Lewis Freedom
Mayor @KeishaBottoms presented #CongressmanLewis with the Phoenix Award, which is the City of Atlanta's highest award.
Lewis, who represents Georgia's 5th District, played an important part in the fight for #civilrights throughout the 1960's and continues his advocacy today.
Lewis told FOX 5 he was deeply moved by the renaming. "It means a great deal. And it's my hope and prayer that young people – especially young children – growing up will say 'Why is that parkway named after John Lewis? Who is this guy? What did he do?" he said. "And they will be inspired to stand up, speak up, speak out, and get in good trouble.
The city will also dedicate a #FreedomRiders play space.
