In the early 80's the influence of Hip Hop, although still in her early pubescence, was still undeniable. It became the voice of disenfranchised youth who otherwise went unheard. What began as an art form, evolved into a cry out against social injustice, and a rally for unity; it began to form a new and distinctive culture, complete with its own code of ethics, language, style of dress, etc.

       

In her early innocence, Hip Hop became overwhelmed by drug culture and seduced into a courtship that has rocked our nation with illegitimate offspring; Drug Addiction, Homicide, and Recidivism to name a few. Hip Hop is now sending out a new cry, a cry for help… The people within this culture need mediation. While we may not be able to redeem the culture, we can reach the people!  

Growing up in one Connecticut's inner- cities, witnessing, and  escaping the invasion of the drug epidemic of the early 80s, has played a significant role in the conception of :                                                       Save Our Sons. 

 

 We sparked a movement in our city, and state! 

On August 29th 2004 Save Our Sons came public with our urban outreach mission ( The Urban Disciples Initiative), with a festival on the New Haven Green. The objectives of this event were information sharing motivation, and name recognition. This outdoor event featured a new music genre called Christian Rap. Advocating recidivism reform encourages behavior modification, and mentorship. This event was service to over 800 people, gave opportunities to over 10 vendors, 21 volunteers, shows cased more than 15 artists...

And so it has been and is even now. Bringing the Gospel from the Street Block to the Cell Block!
