Lauren Raysor, former President of the Metropolitan Black Bar, current civil rights attorney and an attorney in recent civil trial against rap and hip-hop artist Remy Ma
Nicole Bailey, Principal, The Learning Tree Multi-Cultural School
With the second anniversary of the shooting of her client, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, at the hands of rap and hip-hop artist Remy Ma having past last month, Attorney Lauren P. Raysor is asking all record companies to insert a “morality clause” in their contracts with all artists — not just rap and hip-hop artists — as a way to show them there are consequences for their actions. Ms. Raysor will have visuals explaining what the morality clause entails, as well as a 12-foot-long timeline chronicling violent incidents involving rap and hip-hop artists. At the press conference, Nicole Bailey, Principal, The Learning Tree Multi-Cultural School, will urge record companies to fund educational programs as a way of being socially responsible.
