aliciaamaAlicia Keys ( who will not perform) made a recent trip to my hometown of Baltimore, Md. She was there to film a segment for the two-hour special and met with former prisoners, mothers of the incarcerated, and a recreational center where most of the kids have relatives in prison. In the clip below, Alicia is seen with a well-known Baltimore Mom, Toya Graham, who is known for cameras capturing her disciplining her son during the riots. The beacon of light leading the conversation with prayer is a good friend of mine and one of LN’s picks for Follow Friday, Ama Chandra.
