On June 22, 2006, Mad Linx, host of the popular BET hip hop show "Rap City," read to eager kids in Harlem as part of a special celebrity "Read-A-Thon" to promote reading to children in the area. Held at the Magic Johnson Theatre, the children were excited to see one of their favorite TV personalities.
Mad Linx spoke with his young fans about not only the importance of reading--but also the wonderment of books. "Reading has the ability to transport the reader to other lands, cultures and to learn about other people in distant places--all without leaving the confines of one's home," says Mad Linx.
Since 2000, the Harlem USA Celebrity Read-A-Thon have been inviting notable readers who have a youthful fan base, as part of their overall program of motivating reading interest in young people. Each year the program grows larger and larger as more and more guest luminaries join forces with community leaders in bringing the joy of reading to the young people of Harlem. Mad Linx states that he is privileged to be part of such a wonderful program.
"Rap City" can be seen Monday through Saturday, 5-6 pm EST, on Black Entertainment Television (BET).
