The Passing of the Ghetto Scientist

Today we lost a beloved member of the Algiers Community in New Orleans. Claude Eugene Owens aka "The Ghetto Scientist", who taught GED classes and knew how to create a pseudo plasma shield with a cigarette and a microwave passed away this morning. A true genius who was caught up in the ailments of his community. Keep him in your thoughts.

This passed week, we have been taking down the show at GalerĂ­a de la Raza. Raquel and Audra now hate us for all the gallons of paint and illegal dumpings of random wood it took to cover our show. Sorry guys.

At lease we left the mission with a memorial for all the youth that have been lost to senseless violence. Bounce with the help of 2hERMANO created this mural on the corner of 24 y Bryant. We strongly encourage you to add to it by pasting pictures, leaving flowers, and burning candles in honor of our loved ones who have passed too soon.

I will always remember my AWESOME,extraordinary,and loving uncle. He always found a way to share his knowledge with his nieces and nephews, even if we didnt understand it at that time, later the "LIGHTS" would come on! Thank you uncle Claude for your unselfish knowledge and giving heart.I love you!!!

Love Always Your Neice,

Thank you Algiers for loving my big brother. If I could live my life over again, I would live it with Claude Eugene Owens as my hero once again.

Claude thank you for providing a good example of what a great brother should be.

Your lil sis,
