11 Nov BET 106 & PARK and PEACE+LOVE
Peace+Love traveled to New York with 75 students from high schools in the Philadelphia area. Participating high schools included Overbrook High School, A. Phillip Randolph Skill Center, and Cheltenham High School. Student attendees participated in the 106&Park studio audience adorned in Peace+Love gear.
For the Founders of Peace+Love this was a euphoric eclipse to end domestic violence awareness month on the day the Founder’s sister, Theresa Linda Davis, was murdered by her husband on October 29, 1985. Spending the day in New York at 106&Park was a great experience for the students; while providing a humbling opportunity to honor the lives of women who have lost their life or been effected by domestic violence.
For the student participants they were given a double dose of 106&Park as they participated in two shows. Students were dressed in holiday costumes for the airing of the Halloween show featuring recording artist French Montana.
Peace+Love owes a huge thank you to its supporters and sponsors: Richard Austin, former Peace+Love Board President, Craig Alleyne, State Farm Insurance, City2City Bus Tours, Brendon and Gwen Bing, and the school administrators at Overbrook High School, A. Phillip Randolph and Cheltenham High School.
