Whitelock has its Rocafella moment

Stokey Cannady grew up in Reservoir Hill, and more specifically Whitelock St., during some of its toughest times. After an extended period away, he has now returned to Reservoir Hill to give back what he feels he once took away from the neighborhood. Last year, RHIC worked with Stokey's organization, Never Give Up LLC, to clean up German Park and paint the basketball courts. This year's 2nd annual Never Give Up Festival will return to German Park the first weekend of July (Friday 7/1-Sunday 7/3). Here are some scenes from a video that Jay-Z's website, lifeandtimes.com, put together to show how much Whitelock St. has changed recently:
