Cyrus Webb Discusses "What Makes Me ME?" With Students At Peeples Middle School (Jackson, MS)

(May 4-5, 2010) Since 1999 Cyrus Webb has been visiting public schools in his homestate of Mississippi sharing his love of the arts and discussing topics that matter to the students. On Monday, May 4th and May 5th, he will spend the entire day a Peeples Middle School in Jackson, MS talking with those in Mrs. Jacqueline Bolden's classes about the topic "What Makes Me ME?"

"It seems like an easy question to answer," says Webb, 34, "but your response has alot to do with what you are personally going through." Webb realizes that alot of the students are dealing with challenges that may affect the way they look at life and their own future. He will be talking with them about expressing those feelings, and they will all be writing about how they see themselves.

On Mon. May 17, 2010 Webb will return to the school for them to share from their work with their classmates. Joining him during this year's project will be recording artist Lo Watts of Playa Connected.
