An acclaimed documentary filmmaker brought a message of hope and responsibility to area male youths at the annual Male Conference, hosted by Southcoast Hospitals' RAPPP program (Responsible Attitudes toward Pregnancy, Parenting & Prevention).
Byron Hurt, creator of the award-winning documentary, "Beyond Beats and Rhymes: Masculinity in Hip-Hop Culture," spoke to 260 young males from Fall River to Wareham about violence awareness.
Hurt spoke to the youths about the importance of being a responsible man with inner and moral courage.
"When you realize who you really are, you let your individual light shine across the world," Hurt told the teens. "Your generation of boys and men has the ability to set a standard across the nation and not fall into the trap of being hard and tough."
