Take a look at photos from Mic Check 1-Two!’s 3rd annual Prom Drive Tour. This year we visited Overbrook High School, Randolph High School and Delaware County Technical High School. These lovely young women and a few young men selected from gently-worn dresses for their special day. Much thanks to everyone who donated and volunteered to help these young queens!

Today we had the opportunity to host a workshop about “Misled” at “The Student Takeover” event at Philadelphia Center for Arts and Technology. The event was organized by Influencing Action Movement and offered cash giveaways and mock interviews for parents and teens.
We played a trivia game to test participants knowledge about commonly believed theories about African Americans. The four lucky winners walked away with gift cards to Chic-Fil-A and ITunes thanks to IAM!
We also shared some footage from past episodes of “Misled”

Click on the video below to watch an all new episode of, Misled: Jail Cells > Dorm Rooms: The Fate of the Black Man in America
This mini-doc examines the effects of mass incarceration among black males and their families. We wanted to talk about the effect of incarceration from various perspectives in order to show the impact it has on an entire family, and culture. We examine the effects of poor education, stress-management and other factors that further perpetuate the cycle of mass incarceration among black males. In a heartbreaking interview, a child shares how much he misses his father who is currently incarcerated. You don’t want to miss this show! Please watch, share, and join in the conversation via comments on our website and YouTube Page and Social Media outlets.
