He had a heart for youth and took the time out of his schedule to join me on my #EyeAmBaltimore Tour to high schools in West Baltimore following last year’s uprising where he spoke about the importance of staying in school.
“Tonight, he had just completed hosting the “Touch the People Pray for Peace in These Streets” Charity Basketball Game at Morgan State University when his life tragically ended.
“To the Watson family, and youth throughout the City of Baltimore, please accept my condolences for this loss.”
