Malik & Demond: A Memphis Rox Story

3 mins


With high unemployment and crime rates, it’s all too easy for the youth of South Memphis to turn to drugs and gangs. But some, like Demond, lean on Memphis Rox, a nonprofit climbing gym in the neighborhood that employs more than 50 locals and welcomes everyone — regardless of their ability to pay. After getting hit by a stray bullet, Demond finds a reprieve from the streets at the gym and brotherly support from Malik, a mentor and photographer at Memphis Rox.
