Anwan ‘Big G’ Glover to Moderate Youth
Discussion on Making the Right Decisions and Conflict Resolution.
Camp Springs, MD –
The Department of Family Services, Children, Youth and Families Division will
host a free, one-day, Youth Empowerment
Summit at the Prince George’s Ballroom
on June 24, 2014. The summit will
feature a viewing of the 2012 Sundance Film Selection, Luv
starring Common and Michael Rainey Jr., a coming-of-age story about an
impressionable boy who gets a crash course in what it means to be a man after
spending the day with his ex-convict uncle he idolizes. Participants will then get an opportunity to
discuss the film in an open dialog moderated by actor and musician Anwan ‘Big G’ Glover from the
HBO series, The Wire, and 12 Years a Slave. Anwan is also known for his long-time role as
lead vocalist for the Washington, DC Go-Go Band, “The Backyard Band.”
The purpose of the Youth Empowerment Summit is to help youth
make the right choices for a positive future.
Exercises in conflict resolution and mediation awareness will be
conducted by The Key Bridge Foundation, a
conflict management provider that uses resolution strategies to encourage
cooperation and problem solving for individuals and organizations.
Registration is required. Call 301-265-8446 to register. Due
to the R rating of the film, Prince George’s County youth ages 13-17 must have signed parental consent. Breakfast and
lunch will be provided.
