The Roots Announce New Educational Program

Anyone want to major in The Roots? Black Thought and The Roots recently announced, along with the Mural Arts Program, plans for a building on South Street to don a mural in their honor. Today, the group officially released information detailing an arts education class that will be taught in the storefront on which the mural is to be created. The class will be called “Roots 101” and will feature a curriculum of musical history, music and arts integration, multimedia elements, and appearances from the Roots crew and their colleagues.
