In this episode of BWTV, Black Westchester Magazine’s Editor-In-Chief AJ Woodson caught up with the founders of the upcoming 4 Square Peace Project, Capella Grey and CJ Parchment ‘CJP’, to chop it up about the new project.
When a group of young adults from Mount Vernon, some who previously and currently had beef, some with gang affiliations, one thing they all had in common was MUSIC, came together to work on an album together calling for peace, it was a no-brainer for BW to spotlight these young talented individuals. This is the type of thing mainstream media wont , show you when it comes to our youth.
Check out the interview and hear from the young men who made it happen in their own words.
Capella Grey & CJ Parchment conceptualized the project and brought all of the artists together. Mr. Reggie Huggins, Chris Killibrew and Deputy Police Commissioner Anthony Mitchell assisted in facilitating this project. Councilman André Wallace has also supported the youth in the making of this project. The project consists of approximately 53 artists – rappers, singers, musicians engineers, producers, writers, etc., all from the City of Mount Vernon, N.Y.
When you see them pick up a copy of their CD and support our youth who are doing positive things to impact their community. Black Westchester Magazine salutes and proudly spotlights all involved with the 4 Square Peace Project, including Ellarese who recorded and edited the video, above.
Also look out for the 1st Annual 4 Square Peace Project Concert at the Dole Center (250 S. Sixth Avenue) on Saturday, January 7, 2017.
