THE INSITE GETS HONORED BY UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON DOWNTOWN!

IT WAS ALL ABOUT ACTIVISM AT THE CEREMONY!




I was one of the guest speakers at the UH Downtown annual Black History program on Thursday. I had the chance to give a speech on activism in the community. I was invited and honored because of the story I did on Houstonian Wadie Spikes. He was arrested, charged and jailed for trying to protect his family from a 2 pit bulls last year. After a series of reports at FOX Mr. Spikes was cleared of all charges. The Insite was humbled by the award and proclamation from the university. Also attending the event was SHAPE Center director DeLoyd Parker, Wadie and Bridgette Spikes, Cynthia Conner (Organizer), Dr. Carolyn Ashe, and President Dr. Max Castillo. Thanks to everyone at UH Downtown for the hospitality and the award!
