Savion Glover

Day 363_39 BWebDay 363 (December 29, 2014) – New Orleans, LA

The tapped with the skills of Savion Glover. They tapped for the tourist and wanderers in the French Quarter hoping they would show their appreciation…hoping they would toss a dollar or two or even some loose change in the box. I wish I could say they danced their hearts out for the love and passion of the body in motion, but…this is New Orleans…and these are young black kids. And this a a city where opportunity always seems to overlook a certain segment of the population. Hustling in the quarter is just one of the realities that kids face here. Even after the storm and billions of dollars in investments, opportunity remains limited. And the hustle remains a way of life. I hope one of these days things will change and this kids will be hustling codes or starting their own businesses outside the service sector.
