Reclaim works to innovate Manchester and other marginalized cities by creating mentorship programs that allow young people to have a voice, and help them feel empowered to change policy and decision making in their communities. Reclaim is reversing the power structure of English societies, making the youth the change-makers, but also validating the important role adults in the community, not just the policymakers on the outside, can play in their lives.

I remember my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Moore would play the Sugarhill Gang "Rappers Delight" song everyday.  Big Bank Hank was a  legend in Hip-Hop and will truly be miss.  What's your favorite Sugarhill Gang song?

 

Check it out well I'm

C-A-S-AN and O-V-A

Ya see I go by the code of the doctor of the mix
And these reasons I'll tell ya why

Ya see I'm six foot one and I'm tons of fun
And I dress to a 'T'
Ya see I got more clothes
Than Muhammad Ali and I dress so viciously..........

Miriam Scurrah's curator insight, November 11, 2014 6:51 AM

"Prison's role in society, the logic goes, is to toss away the bad eggs so they can't poison us—so we don't even have to see them. With those eggs cleared, we seamlessly close up the gaps and carry on, clean and whole. The surprise pops up when the broken seams are revealed—the way that incarceration rips open new holes in the social fabric of families and communities outside, severing intricate networks strung together in ways that are observable only upon their breaking. Instead of eggs, we are tossing away people's mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, partners, friends."


Time to say enough is enough. It's broken and can not be fixed, too many people in there who are not dangerous or evil, who are not a threat to the safety of the community. Instead many are broken by the experience and the every day abuse of human rights which occurs inside. The innocent on the outside, family and friends, are punished as well, by a prison system which has no respect for families or people.
