Iesha Sekou’s Street Corner Resources, Harlem Mothers Save and other organizations asked Harlem to come and be apart of the change for Harlem’s Day of Healing. Hundreds showed up at 125th & 7th avenue, held hands and formed a symbolic circle of support with the youth in eliminating violence. Iesha shares the meaning of “I Am Peace”, Harlem HipHop artist Nicholette performs, NYC street social workers stage an encounter and more.
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
