I dont think enough positive energy is broadcast.  So we at DELUX are going to start mentioning the people that “DO IT CAUSE THEY CARE”.  We will start mentioning the positive works of the people who really care and want to better our communities and our youth.

Rennell Parker, I actually played a little bball with this guy back in the day.  Funny how time flies.  But anyway, he has recently published books, held seminars, and has been a powerful voice in our community through his talents.  Rennell Parker is a Poet or on his Facebook page a ‘Believer/ Poet/ Author at God“.  His recent publication, “Speak Up Speak Out… Shout If you Have To!”  Can be purchase on Amazon.com.

Rennell has started a Youth Poetry Tour of St. Louis County Libraries.  These workshops first started 2/5/2011 and will contuw through out April.  Do me a favor– Stop by listen and be inspired.. The schedule of events are listed below
