    Cleveland Inspirations feat. The Griot Project

    in Youth

    Today our children listen and are influenced by music that talks about sex, violence, degradation and false hopes of lives that they dream about living. Do you allow them to continue to listen to music that's negatively influencing their lives or do you provide them with an alternative that will give them a true sense of worth and direction?  Tune as Mr. Yancey talks with D. L. Woure, a founding member of The Griot Project, about how we can positively influence our youth through the art of spoken word. Feel free to call in with your questions and comments at (914)338-0665.
