Domestic Violence

While we focus on awareness On The Applebox, I wanted to take this time to share with you a piece that was created in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, October 2009. During the homecoming season we shared with you all the winners of the Miss Black and Gold Pageant here in the AUC at Morehouse College for the Alpha Rho Chapter. Ms. Lynsey Mitchell (Miss Black and Gold 2009/2010) and I had the pleasure of putting our heads together to create a project that would bring light to a very serious matter that is often ignored. Ms. Mitchell, her court, and myself all were blessed with the opportunity to work with other very talented young women and gain knowledge from insightful individuals. Though this particular project was a very quick make, we know that the content has, can, and will continue to make a difference.

I thank Miss Black and Gold and her Court, the Distinguished men of the Alpha Rho Chapter, as well as Mr. Ali Banks for his editing, and all of the individuals that took part in creating this piece that we each hold dear to our hearts.

Don't forget On the Applebox to BE Informed!!!
