UK DEBATE (WATCH): BEING A MAN 2014 – ‘GANGING UP’ (FEATURING AKALA)

David Cohen, Campaigns Editor at the London Evening Standard leads a discussion with Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder of Kids Company, former gang members Feras Al-Bakri and Karl Lokko and hip-hop artist Akala to investigate the impact of gang culture on young people, rites of passage and the sense of ‘family’ that attracts young men to gang membership. The session is introduced by Southbank Centre’s Artistic Director Jude Kelly. [Thanks Lorraine] This was brilliant. Well done to everyone on the panel.
