Local civil rights group True Healing Under God (T.H.U.G.) in collaboration with Temple Church International is holding a countywide workshop this weekend.
The self-development workshop is for black boys ages 8-16. It will focus on character improvement, godly principles, discipline, respect, "pulling up their pants", and learning more about the Trayvon Martin case.
T.H.U.G. says the concept is called "Save Our Sons" and mothers around the county have responded. The group hopes to reach 100 black males.
Saturday, August 10 Noon-2 p.m. Temple Church International 3201 Tuckaseegee Road Charlotte
