My Brother's Keeper

Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Roosevelt

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our March 2019 newsletter

Roosevelt High School recently hosted a discussion with hip-hop legends Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC and Chuck D. of Public Enemy. Over 150 MBK students attended the discussion.

The event was geared toward promoting the involvement of civil leaders in the lives of young men of color. The two rappers discussed how they have been leaders throughout their lives.

Later in the day, the rappers visited Washington-Rose Elementary School to also speak to younger students.
