Recently, Shayvon Studios has had the honor of filming the second installation of Mr. Anthony Irving's short documentary series entitled "Change". We were on location with 17year old Mahlek Hargrove, who was an eye opener and great inspiration as his story was told through his own words and heart. It was incredible to hear what this young man had to say about the climate of the black community present day. There are a lot of young people out there with their own story and all they want is someone to listen. As parents and community leaders, the least we can do for these youths is be an outlet. Majority of the struggles these young people face are due to decisions made by their parents or adults in the community. Let's create a FOUNDATION for our future leaders!
