The six-part Surviving R. Kelly docu-series that aired on Lifetime this past week has been a ratings gem for the network. The intense series dug into the embattled singer’s thirty-year career and personal life to uncover a world of pedophilia, family crisis and celebrity manipulation. So Our Youth Aspire (SOYA), as a resource for parents, educators and those who work with youth, wanted to engage in the conversation that the series has sparked. So, we have created a series ourselves that is called “Surviving the R. Kelly Docu-Series”. Each article will be a Q & A with an expert or a conversation between educators or parents about ways to talk with young people about sexual predators and other pertinent points that are often overlooked or negated from the narratives we share with our children and youth.
