The City of Oakland and its youth often get a bad rap in the media, and while Oakland does have a high crime and violence rate, there is so much more to this story. MAKE MOVES illustrates the creative and vibrant side of Oakland through the stories of three young African American men. Orlando, CT and Bizzy all grew up surrounded by violence, crime, and poverty yet are engaging in activities that will help them break out of this cycle. These three young men are a part of a community organization called Youth Uprising that supports, engages, educates and inspires youth to express themselves creatively. MAKE MOVES is about the stories have not been told, about showing the beauty of this city and celebrating youth, who, through music, word, and dance are empowering themselves and their community.
