Prince's vision for lifting up black youths: Get them to code
from CNN via KESQ-TV
Prince wasn't just a renowned artist. He was also an advocate for a more inclusive tech community. It was this belief that inspired Prince's friend Van Jones to start YesWeCode, a nonprofit in Oakland, which is at the forefront of a movement to get more young minorities involved in technology. The YesWeCode initiative, which is part of Jones' Rebuild the Dream charity, is on a mission to teach 100,000 low-income youths to write code.
