Mr. Boggs, who now lives in Los Angeles, is one of America’s best artists. He is scheduled to express how art saved his life from drugs, violence, and death on the streets of Coatesville and Philly. The celebrity artist will speak to his former teammate, Professor and Author, Edmond Davis, who is the host and producer of Buffalo Radio’s KEEPING IT 100 With DORI. The show is on the newest HBCU radio station in the nation at Arkansas Baptist College.

Davis produces America’s only known weekly radio show discussing Black male homicides as the #1 killer of Black males ages 1-44 as a national health crisis (Source: CDC, 2021). This weekly anti-Black fratricide-centric show is heard in Memphis, New Orleans, St. Louis, Little Rock, Oakland, NYC, Atlanta and Dallas.

It’s been 28 years since Davis and either Andre Boggs or Andre Myers were in the backfield under the then head coach Jack Helm. Now they are pioneers in different professions. Davis was born in West Philadelphia, and Boggs in Downingtown before meeting in 1993 at CASH. Boggs played with Richard ‘RIP’ Hamilton and Davis with Penn States’ Clint Seace before replacing him in 1994.

Today, Boggs is a nationally known artist in Los Angeles, while Davis, outside of hosting a radio show, wrote Arkansas’ first and only Tuskegee Airmen history book and is a national leader on Black male homicides as Director of the Derek Olivier Research Institute (DORI) for the Prevention of Gun Violence.

These two former Coatesville Area Senior High School students say they “made it out” and wish to inspire others to promote nonviolence and seek peaceful solutions that mitigate homicides. Across the United States, Black males between the ages of 18 and 25 are killed every day. “These are facts, not feelings,” says Davis, who describes himself as “a product of [Coatesville’s] 7th Ave”.

The show is scheduled for this evening at 6 PM CST, 7 PM EST, & 4 PM PST and can be listened to on the Buffalo Radio website at elasticplayer.xyz/buffaloradio/
