SOCIAL ANGST is more than just a blog, it is an invitation to aid in the building of wealth through the shared task of information distribution and discussion. It is a call to engage – engage in society, engage with your peers, engage in your political system, engage in spreading the wealth that is information, and engage in multiplying that wealth through discussion – so that collectively we may become more socially aware, more socially responsible, more socially vocal and ultimately more socially valuable.

In The News:
Harlem Boys Choir Falls Silent

Sadly, the New York Times is reporting the Quiet Ending for the Boys Choir of Harlem.  The non-profit organization aimed at mentoring at risk teenage males in the Harlem community hopes to reorganize, refocus, and reopen at a later time.

For over thirty years the Boys Choir of Harlem has provided a chance for underprivileged and at-risk young men of Harlem to choose community service over trouble.  It is a truly sad loss for Harlem and the world.

The below video is a tear inspiring rendition of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot sung by Kathleen Battle accompanied by the Boys Choir of Harlem and the New York Philharmonic.

It's amazing what children can do when someone takes an interest in their development.  That, in my opinion, is the best type of activism of them all.
