Description
Two audio recordings. Presentation by the rap group Kan-Dee-Krew, which rapped about drug abuse. It consisted of six members: Duane and Rodney Rumph, Coffie, Harden, Plummer, and Thomas. They performed several rap songs and answer student questions about rapping, songwriting, performing, and drug abuse. Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.
