My School Has Rhythm Not Violence
Earlier this year, the NYPD’s Community Affairs Bureau School Safety Division hosted a competition throughout various high schools in the Bronx, called My School Has Rhythm, Not Violence. Students from the Alfred E. Smith Career and Technical Education High School in the Bronx won the annual event.
Alfred E Smith’s “New Generation” took on groups from other high schools in the anti-violence competition. The anti-violence message reinforced the idea that art can educate and spread a positive message through music. The winning New Generation team then took their work to the studio. A video was produced featuring these wonderfully talented kids and members of the NYPD School Safety Division.
Members of the NYPD’s Community Affairs Bureau and School Safety Division helped out with a music video, and the result shows that kids CAN make changes in the streets, and be all they want to be.
Alfred E. Smith Career and Technical Education High School’s “New Generation” (The Bronx) won the annual event. See winning the video below:
