Very insightful discussion. Tony Lewis Jr. is a shining example of what an open mind and a compassionate heart can overcome and accomplish in ANY environment. His initiatives and efforts have shaped the landscape for inner city DC and has proven that there really is no gap between the worlds of poverty, incarceration, and entertainment.
