Program Description

"Keith Cross Presents: Senior Citizen Rap Class is a month-long workshop in which senior citizens study the evolution of Hip-Hop by exploring the jazz, blues, and soul roots of Hip-Hop music. Hosted by independent hip-hop artist, Keith Cross, each student 'graduates' by showcasing his or her emcee skills as they perform an original piece during a live show..."


" 'For those who do come and do stay, it's not about the music,' Cross said. 'They come and do it because they care about young people . . . it's a means to help connect with the young people in their lives.' "
