In 2017, 139 individuals were exonerated according to the National Registry of Exoneration. That's 139 lives that have been paused due to false conviction. 139 families that have been damaged by an unjust system. Our film seeks to be a voice for the all the individuals that are currently serving a sentence for a crime they didn't commit. Strong families build strong societies. Our wold can never be strong if we continue to tear families apart behind false convictions.
In 2004, Yearning 2 Learn was developed by “Snoop” Robinson. “Snoop” was intrigued by the way kids and adults enjoy music and how easily they remember every song on the radio. Having worked in a career in which he had to quickly learn how to communicate with his Spanish speaking employees, “Snoop” decided to combine his love for music and his desire to learn the Spanish language to create a product that would bring the fun of learning to rhythmic beats. As he brainstormed, the worlds of fun, music and language collided resulting in him to connect with Alejandro “Mr. Perez” Perez, Jr. a bilingual educator, and Hip Hop artist, and partnering with Jason “J Shi” Robinson, a music producer. From this partnership Yearning 2 Learn was birthed. Six years later, they have reunited to reignite Yearning 2 Learn by reaching beyond Hip Hop and incorporating Reggae, Pop, and other music genres to present to this musically intoxicated generation.
Yearning 2 Learn plans to launch other interactive learn ing CDs; animated DVDs; develop real life characters to travel to schools and organizations to encourage learning and produce a television show. Our goal is to continuously introduce technologically advanced ways of academic instruction that will leave children and adults alike “Yearning 2 Learn”.
