Bank Holiday Monday 26th May | Space Bar Newcastle College 4pm
Following the success of the first presentation, ‘Racism, Gangs & Gun Culture’, IDC invites you to the second presentation by Napolean in Newcastle upon Tyne, ‘the Code of the Street’. A follow on from the initial talk which looked at Napoleans personal life and experiences living on the street and his positive changes to move away from gang and gun culture after the death of his close friend and ‘father figure’, Tupac Shakur.
‘The Code of the Streets’ is an attempt to clarify the realities of the gangster rap lifestyle, to which many of the youth of today have aligned themselves to. The theme is based upon the true code of the streets, challenging the current perceptions of what is being portrayed as ‘gangster’ and showing that even gangsters have a code and rules in which they live by, and not the common misconception that ‘anything goes’ and ‘by any means necessary’.
‘the Code of the Streets’ will present the youth of today an alternative to gangster lifestyle and provide a positive message to stay away from drugs, alcoholism, tackle & challenge racism and move away from gangs and gang culture.
