‘Which case of police brutality has affected you and the organization the most?’

Generocity's high school intern asks Universal Companies' Nikkia Moss and Reid Moss the tough questions about policy brutality and engaging Black youth in this edition of Around the Corner.

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area. 


This edition of Around the Corner is different from most.

Rashaan Brooks, one of Generocity’s summer interns and a Masterman High School student, talked to Nikkia Moss and Reid Moss of Universal Companies (UC), an African-American-led education management and development nonprofit. Nikkia Moss is UC’s wellness manager as well as the program manager of one of UC’s character development programs for youth, From Boys to Men. Reid Moss is the president of the alumni association for Pearls of Wisdom, another UC youth program.

Rather than ask our typical ATC questions, Rashaan got right down to it: “It’s a shame that so much violence has been going on in the world lately, specifically with the African-American community,” he said. “Can both of you just tell me, which case of police brutality has really affected you and the organization the most?”

Oof. It’s a tough question to answer, and Rashaan has a tougher one up his sleeve. It’s best you hear it from him, though.
