We turn truth to power over here 💯✊🏽! I want y’all to see that we got a “fair shot” at doing something for our ppl not waiting on no Government or these out dated tired leaders! - @mrtonylewisjr proposed that @dcpc acknowledge children with an incarcerated parent or parents. So @dcps understand the urgency of acknowledging these youth. Now it’s time other School system fall in line. We a model city right ? 🤷🏽‍♀️ -This is a step in the right direction! We got ten follow up steps coming forward! Don’t talk about the issues anymore, DO SOMETHING! We not settling! We ain’t taking nomore crumbs either!
It’s a new day D.C. ! 🤟🏽💯 We are a Government of the people run by the people. Don’t you ever forget it!

@wallo267 and I had the opportunity to really build today . We discussed ways to empower our community, form strategic partnerships, and highlighting the deep layers of destabilization caused by Mass Incarceration.

As subject matter experts it’s imperative that people like us are called to media outlets , institutions of higher leaning, legislative halls ,communities, faith based institutions and correctional facilities to provide context and guidance around the issue of Mass Incarceration.
You can’t study or research what lived experience has provided , you also can’t measure the intrinsic knowledge survival provides .

It’s Now or Never , let’s build . Talk is cheap , we action oriented .

In 2014, I curated a portrait exhibit photographed by @capturethecapital raising awareness about the impact mass incarceration had on children , families , and communities. It was called COLLATERAL DAMAGE : THE OTHER FACES OF MASS INCARCERATION. Men , Women, and Children with incarcerated family members were photographed to show the widespread impacts of mass incarceration. One of my proudest accomplishments . God Bless Every Courageous subject that trusted me enough to participate. They helped drive home such an amazing perspective , I am grateful to all of them . “The exhibit, says its founder, Tony Lewis Jr., is not about the men and women who are incarcerated. Instead, it is about the children, parents and siblings who are cut off from their loved ones, often for the rest of their lives. It’s about the mothers who must raise children alone when fathers are sent away, and the children who grow up without one of their parents.” -@washingtonpost Feature on the exhibit by Keith Alexander
The fight still continues around this issue . As a Community we have to do more for those left behind when a loved one is incarcerated, particularly children . “we all do the time, some just remain free” - @richforever

The “Don’t Get Taken” Initiative is a 3 pronged approach that uses “Slugg” to impact mass incarceration and public safety by targeting inmates/returning citizens , adjudicated youth , and youth in schools .
Today I had a great time building with the outstanding scholars at Hart Middle School . Thank You @penfaulkner , The Amazing Staff at Hart , and the Young Kings and Queens for having me today.

Slugg Author Talk with @penfaulkner at @friendshippcs ..... what a great time I had building with the Young Scholars today . They were amazing . This is my second time at the school in as many weeks . I am so clear that “Slugg” isn’t just my story but it’s there’s also , and because of that the students connect to it deeply . The beauty of “Slugg” is no matter what your background is you will connect to it , it’s a human story full of love , tragedy, and triumph .
Students that read it are educated , inspired, and empowered.

Ward 5 Councilmember @krmcduffie made a visit to Wheatley Elementary in Trinidad to check on the Young Scholars in the Ward today. The class was watching an interview on “Gentrification “ I did with @dwatkinsworld for @salonmagazine . Thank You So Much CM McDuffie for sharing this moment .
I really cannot articulate what that means to me . To know that my interview is being used as a teaching tool is a dream come true. So much of my advocacy is to inspire the next generation, so when Slugg is read in schools or one of my interviews is being shown to a class it is so surreal because I prayed for that and it is happening. I 🙏🏿my example serves as hope , evidence, knowledge, and empowerment.

In this country the offspring of Italian, Jewish, and Irish Gangsters have been able to assimilate into mainstream America , legitimizing their families names and legacies .
African-American Gangsters were not afforded the same blind eye from the law . They were not able to forge the same relationships that lead to limited prosecution and short prison terms for say the Italian mob. Their offspring often were forced to grow up in very similar conditions/environments as their parents which were hyper-policed and void of opportunity. Therefore many children of African American Gangsters had to become Gangsters themselves in order to pursue the America Dream .

It was not set up for us to go Legit even though that’s all people really wanted . Being a Gangster was the best option people had to legitimizing .
I am proud to say I legitimized my family along with many of my cousins , we changed the dynamic of our family and our Children will go even further than we have .
America will have you being ashamed of who you are and who you come from if you are not careful . without telling you that the Senator, Judge , Doctor , Lawyer, CEO had a Father , Grandfather , and Great Grandfather that was a Gangster .
Shoutout to everybody who took their family legit , You are the American Dream .
