This will now be an annual event for charity. This year its proceeds will go toward helping to inspire young poets in Detroit.
Brown will be partnering with InsideOut Detroit's City Wide Poets Project (CWP) and will be raising money via a fundraising page for both CWP and the Detroit Public School system. The pledge drive aims to help put a poet in every Detroit classroom and will end on November 12th. On top of the show and the fundraising page, Brown will also be hosting a poetry workshop aimed for teens and young adults in Detroit as well.
How rad is that? And how cool is it that Danny Brown is such a giant star that Rolling Stone runs this as a feature news item?
