Several years ago, The Dare To Be King Project founder David Miller created a flyer with 10 Rules of Survival If Stopped By Police that went viral. The Dare To Be King Project inspires, supports and strengthens organizations that provide services to boys of color. Sadly, in 2021, these tips are more important today.
Given the recent developments with police officers and black males in America, this is a timely reminder of the reality for many citizens in America.
