Behind the scenes of the Community Unity Music Education Program (CUMEP) at Southside Community Center [AUDIO]

We take a look at what goes on at Southside Community Center every summer. WRFI’s Jimmy Jordan recently visited their Community Unity Music Education Program (CUMEP), a unique program where kids learn about music and discussing social justice as well as racism. Jordan spoke with Southside’s Dr. Nia Nunn and Dr. Baruch Whitehead and captured some magical, musical moments. Among WRFI’s features, this is one of the most creatively edited.

This feature first aired on WRFI Community Radio News on August 6.
