Playwright, break beat poet and hip hop educator Idris Goodwin takes us to school on the 4/21/10 edition of Little Village Live.

Little Village Live is 5-6 pm every Wednesday on KRUI, 89.7 fm in Iowa City, or streaming live at http://kruiradio.org/listen.

Idris Goodwin’s latest album, Break Beat Poems (out now on Chicago’s SGE Records), was recently reviewed by LV‘s Kent Williams, who called Poems “something special – three points, nothing but net.”

Videos by Drew Bulman

In the following video, Goodwin discusses his experience of moving to Iowa City. The hip hop artist and poet grew up in the Detroit area, lived in Chicago for over a decade and eventually made his way to Iowa City after a pit stop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
