Join us this week as Youth Beat Radio travels to the Southside neighborhood of Columbus. Need something to do? Hear about the many activities of the Barack Community Center, part of the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. The show highlights the APPS program (Applications for Purpose, Pride, and Success), a unique program for youth ages 14-21 started by Mayor Michael B. Coleman with the goal of teaching life skills and reducing community violence. We also feature interviews with Cheyenne Rozelle, playwright and director of the musical stage play “The Southside Shall Rise Again” and cast members. The play was recently held at Barack Recreation Center. This show is not only informational, but encouraging because it ignites unity and pride in a community! Stay tuned for more activities from this part of Columbus.
