Kwame recounted the story of how the media misreported the Baltimore riots. They showed decades old damage as riot inflicted damage. They made people scared of going to the stadium. In fact many of the agitators at the stadium were not those from the community. They were instead patrons.
Kwame Rose spoke about what he did in the neighborhood. He went into the community and empowered many of the young men in the neighborhood. Eventually many were invited to the White House.
