Rapper Jay Rock, a former gang member turned Grammy-winning musician, will be the keynote speaker for Saving Our Sons, a one-day event Saturday, Aug. 3, for at-risk youth at Carson’s Cal State Dominguez Hills.
The event’s official description says the conference will examine “active solutions to assist our boys of color.”
Among those attending the empowerment conference, aimed at boys 16 years of age and older, will be youths on probation, wards of the court, continuation students, and youths living in foster and group homes.
The event includes break-out sessions on a variety of timely topics, tie-tying lessons, free haircuts for those who preregister, a backpack giveaway and lunch.
