KIDS OF NEW YORK
Lately, I felt there was a need for an event to showcase the diversity in the communities of New York. An event that was accessible to all. Hip Hop, I feel is about uniting, not dividing people. With much respect to the pioneers Afrika Bambaataa, Kool Herc and countless others, I'll do my best to continue the tradition of true Hip Hop. - Anthony Colon
Finally, we’ll listen to interviews with Anthony Colon, founder of Kids of New York, and with Carlos Melendez andChristian Kronsted, two of the young men who won in Kids of New York’s breakdancing competition last spring. We end with judge Peaches Rodriguez, who tells us what it was like to be one of the first girl breakdancers back in the day. To find out more, check out kidsofny.org.
