HOT OFF THE SHOW! Helping Youth Overcome the Odds

A little different show today talking about positive ways to help inner city youth overcome the odds of their environment. RC Williams is a testimony to this having grown up in Richmond, California, a city with one of the highest crime rates, and a grad from Richmond High, the 'fence' between the 'Bloods' and the 'Crips'. He mentors inner city kids today with a positive, reality-based message. RC is also part of our radio show production team, being a graduate of the Columbia School of Broadcasting.
