That's wassup. Children are our future according to a pre-crack Whitney. LOL.

Seriously though, it's hot that you're dedicating time to helping kids express themselves in a healthy way. Anything to temporarily distract these lil effers from BET and terrorizing each other on the internet.

That's great!

Just being there helps tremendously with this age group...

I too did some "bootleg" spoken word at a black history festival this past weekend, and I have been asked to help a group of HS kids start up a poetry club...what they don't know, is...I am going to make those lil boogers read.
