There's a lot of negativity associated with the youth of today. In the eyes of many, people under the age of 30 are doing nothing to positively impact their community. Tarik Daniels has set out to change that opinion.
A series of personal events lead Mr. Daniels to found "What's in the Mirror" in 2015. The goal of this non-profit organization is to bring mental health awareness and suicide prevention to the black community. This is something that is very near and dear to Tarik's heart.
Additionally, Daniels finds it very important that African-Americans discover parts of their history they never knew existed. With this in mind, researched and wrote the play, "Rose University: First Semester." Daniels says this play explores the lives of five black students at a HBCU who are descendants of Greenwood, Oklahoma, which was the most successful black community in America's history."
