Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr said it best, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” In recent times this nation has been plagued with a racial tension that is devastating this country. Injustice and violence is happening all across this nation, in a neighborhood near you. More and more lives are being taken, by the hands of not only the law, but by the people we know of in our own community. In the city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania they are taking a stand in an attempt to “Silence The Violence”.
This special event will be hosted by Grammy Award Winning hip hop artist Mr. Cheeks of the Lost Boyz. It will also feature special performances by Ambition (formerly 4-Play of Pretty Ricky), TEN/27 [Trevy Is Famous], Kim King, D-Ess, and Club Fresh. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of the violence that has been plaguing the streets and how the community can come together and help silence the violence in their streets. Members of the Johnstown N.A.A.C.P. will be present and the branch President will speak on how violence is affecting the community of Johnstown. Mr. Cheeks himself will also speak on how he was effected by violence. This event is presented by”8-ONE-4 Us” in collaboration with The Roundtable Empire and On My Hip Hop Ish. Tickets can be purchased in advance on our website.
