Eric Antuan James connects with kids who must face seemingly insurmountable odds because he was one of them.  Like all too many at-risk children, Eric was born to young teenage parents, became a gang member, and was told most of his young life that he was doomed to live a meaningless, hellish life.  But Eric ultimately changed his life and became a changed man.  Today, through his €œChanged Man Productions, his C.H.O.I.C.E.™ Program, his educator workshops, and his rap performances, Eric spreads messages of hope and inspiration as he campaigns against gangs, drugs and youth crime to attentive young audiences around the country.


Eric's mission is to empower youth to become leaders of character, vision and action in their communities by igniting their passion to create and equipping them with the skills and discipline to become a product of C.H.O.I.C.E.™
