The event will increase awareness about critical health issues and present music and entertainment that uplifts us.
From 4 pm to 6 pm there will be Vendor Networking & Speakers:
Easy A.D. Harris, Founding member of the Legendary Cold Crush Brothers spreads the message — Healthy Lifestyle Choices through the Culture of Hip Hop.
James (Cool Breeze) Gray, Executive VP of National Action Network (NAN) Bronx chapter — on the Effects of K2.
- K2 or Spice is synthetic marijuana available over the counter in corner stores and shops. It's an unregulated, unpredictable chemical substance that physically resembles marijuana. Users act erratically, experience respiratory problems and are collapsing on the streets. On July 11, 2018, the problem hit new levels — numerous calls were made to 911 when the usual sea of “zombies” began to look more disturbing than usual. One resident's description: “a scene out of The Walking Dead.”
- James Gray, Executive VP of National Action Network (NAN) Bronx chapter is on the front lines of the war on K2. He's been arrested three times with fellow NAN activists for protesting the sale of K2 in black communities of NYC. This was part of a five borough K2 campaign spearheaded by the NAN to expose smoke shops and bodegas who are selling this lethal drug.
