    Hey KC! My name is Miss B and I am a writing instuctor for adult learners (mostly ages 16-24) at the Kansas City Kansas Community College. I've immediately noticed that there's ONE thing I can always get my students to talk and write about: HIP HOP culture and music. Most of these learners come from rougher backgrounds, and haven't been exposed to the positive sides of self and worldly expression. I think it'd be great to have willing and motivated visitor(s) to come share some of the positive aspects to writing, and it's role in the local, hip hop community with these students. Be it through visual art, grafitti, lyrics, etc. The floor is yours. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Thank you...take care KC! PS: class times are Monday-Thursday 8:30 am-12:30 pm
