Keys Stopped by at Shabazz



Alicia Keys stopped by at the Betty Shabazz International Charter School to take part in "Frum Tha Ground Up" on Thursday April 1, 2005

Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys stopped by at the Betty Shabazz International Charter School on Thursday April 1, 2005, to take part in "Frum Tha Ground Up." This public school that features an Afrocentric curriculum, was one of five schools Keys was to visit in various cities around the country, including Washington, Atlanta and New York, to promote her album "The Diary of Alicia Keys."

Clearly touched by seeing more than 300 children, many dressed in kente cloth, sang a song in Swahili for her, Keys said "I am honored to be here today with you celebrating me as I am celebrating you. To see a place that's really connected to something, holds onto traditions, I've never seen that anywhere."
