On the eve of the 50th Anniversary of hip-hop. As the Bronx-born genre of music gained popularity, it amplified the voices of systemically marginalized groups. Today, hip-hop artists continue to leverage music and culture to bring investment and resources to their neighborhoods and advocate for the well-being of their communities.
Anthony Henderson, AKA Krayzie Bone is a son of Cleveland and a member of the award-winning rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. In addition to being a talented rapper, he is a producer and entrepreneur. He started the Spread the Love Foundation in 2019, a nonprofit organization that advocates for urban arts and cultural equity by providing music industry education and workforce development for disadvantaged populations to improve Cleveland communities.
Together with the Saint Luke's Foundation, the City Club will bring the conversation directly to the community at the Morning Star Baptist Church for the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. Join us as Krayzie Bone sits down for a candid conversation with WOVU's DJ Kristyles on how music can promote healing and community strength.
