Nonviolent Verses

James McBride, aka Mr. Deep Positivity, issues a call for youth to show off their style!  This program, which features live performances by Mr. Deep Positivity, offers participants a chance to write, record, and perform raps, songs, and poems.  The catch?  You won’t find any misogyny or graphic violence in these crafted lyrics. McBride works to open students up to the power of expression and it’s amazing what these kids can come up with!  Hear for yourself what these talented kids have created:

1. Stop the Violence
2. We Are the Future 

Mr. Deep Positivity and his students also create music videos for their recorded songs, with the help of another PASA AfterZone program, Media Youth Television.  Videos can be viewed on the Nonviolent Verses MySpace page.
