A Message From Nakita Shavers


1 comment

“My brother understood how important is was to show young people that they have options and opportunities as they grow up,” writes Nakita Shavers, sister of slain musician and educator Dinerral Shavers. With that simple mission statement, the local nonviolence awareness group SilenceIsViolence and the Dinerral Shavers Educational Fund have teamed to present Speak Up Part III, an annual community event featuring performances and readings by students from the Teen Center for Non-Violence and SilenceIsViolence’s Programs for Peace. Adds Nakita, “We want to make sure that [Dinerral's] legacy continues to provide opportunities to the young people of New Orleans.”

     Speak Up III will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, at the Sound Café (2700 Chartres St.).
