Who even knew?

The culmination of Afeni Shakur's dedication to son Tupac and America's youth has finally come to fruition. The activist has announced that the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia will open on June 11. The $4 million dollar facility was mostly funded by royalties received from the deceased rapper’s albums, DVD’s and film projects. The six-acre campus will focus on mentoring high-risk youth between the ages of 12-18 and includes offices, a visitor center, a gift shop, an art gallery a peace garden and other offerings. “Nobody is more infatuated with the energy of young people as me,” Afeni Shakur told “I'm looking at them run into a fire and nobody is saying it's hot.” []
